In this week's edition of the week that was for McGill Athletics the McGill Tribune Sports team looks at Audrey-Ann Coughlan and Louis Brouillette, our athletes of the week, Martlet Soccer and Redmen Football, and our weekly edition of by the numbers.
Beyond the box score
Sophomore striker Audrey-Ann Coughlan recorded her second multi-goal game of the season to lead the Martlets (3-1) past the UQTR Patriotes 3-0 on Friday. The Martlets have already recorded two shutout wins this season, and have outscored their opponents 12-4 through four games. Captain Rebecca Green added another goal in the 60th minute to put the game out of reach, and junior goalkeeper Sarah Dubois saved all four shots she faced to earn her first shutout. McGill defeated UQÀM 4-1 on Sunday night to win back-to-back games for the first time this season.
McGill couldn’t overcome an early deficit, falling for the second straight year to Concordia in the annual Shrine Bowl this past Saturday 33-21. Receiver Louis Brouillette, a senior from Sherbrooke, QC, put on a performance for the ages, suiting up as the team’s kicker after back-up Remi Bertillin left the game due to injury. In addition to his 101 receiving yards on seven catches, Brouillette went 2-for-2 on field goal attempts, and punted three times in the game. The Redmen trailed 26-3 after three quarters, and even a furious 18 point rally orchestrated by quarterback Joel Houle wasn’t enough to dig the squad out of the hole. McGill will host Acadia next Saturday, with kickoff set for 6 p.m.
Sophomore – Sciences
Coughlan, a sophomore striker from Longueuil, QC, has been a stabilizing force at the heart of a Martlet soccer team that has overcome an inconsistent first few games to settle into third place in the RSEQ. She currently leads the squad with four goals through four games. With the departure of graduated veteran forward Meghan Bourque, Coughlan has stepped up as a primary scoring threat, displaying a scary combination of finishing skills and speed.
Football, Wide Receiver
Senior – Engineering
Brouillette had a career night in the 29th annual Montreal Shrine Bowl against cross town rivals Concordia. He dominated with seven catches for 101 yards, and even added in five passing yards. The wideout, however, was asked to do more than receive. Punter Remi Bertillin left the game injured and Brouillet was assigned kicking duties. He responded with two field goals and punted 90 yards on three kicks. It was truly great all-around performance.
