Dove-McFalls Takes Weekly Honour

Reds forward Samuel Dove-McFalls has been named the UNB Reds/Papa John's Pizza male Athlete of the Week after a pair of big performances in two convincing home victories this past weekend.

On Friday night Dove-McFalls was named the player of the game in a 10-0 blowout of the Dalhousie Tigers. He scored two goals - including the opening marker that set off the annual Teddy Bear Toss - and won 16 out of 24 face-offs. He added two assists the next night as the Reds easily dispatched St. FX 8-1.

On the season the 2nd year forward has 3 goals and 6 assists in 15 games, while winning over 65% of his face-offs and playing a key role on UNB's top-ranked penalty kill.

Dove-McFalls and the Reds conclude the 1st half of their schedule this weekend with two big road tests. They face the Acadia Axemen on Friday night and then visit Saint Mary's the next night.
