In this week's edition of the week that was for McGill Athletics the McGill Tribune Sports team looks at Rob Sedin and Rebecca Green, our athletes of the week, Redmen Lacrosse and Redmen Baseball, and our weekly edition of by the numbers.
Beyond the box score
McGill came back from a two goal halftime deficit to beat Queen's 13-8 at Molson Stadium on Friday. Attackman Spencer Bromley netted four times in the game and midfielder Connor Goodwin scored six goals. Co-captain and defenceman Paul Rakoczy was key in shutting down Queen’s top scorer, Corey Wright, as midfielder freshman Alex Beckes continued his excellent faceoff form, winning 54 per cent of his opportunities.
McGill capped off a perfect Sunday by beating the Ottawa Gee-Gees three times in one day at Gary Carter Field. McGill also defeated Concordia and Montreal on Sept 23. and Sept 25., respectively. Sedin recorded a four hit shutout against the Carabins which followed up Adriano Petrangelo's excellent pitching performance against Concordia where he allowed only one run and six hits for the game. The Redmen are now third in the CCBA Northern division with a 6-3 record.
Starting Pitcher, Redmen Baseball
Sophomore – Management
After losing back-to-back games against the Montreal Carabins earlier in the season, the sophomore righty took matters into his own hands on Friday night, striking out seven in a four-hit complete game shutout victory over the Carabins. Sedin threw 65 per cent of his pitches for strikes, and walked only two. He also drew a walk and scored a run batting from the leadoff spot. After stumbling out of the gates to a 1-3 start, the Redmen (6-3) have reeled off five straight wins to move back above .500.
Forward, Martlet Soccer
Senior – Science
Less than a minute after Laval took the lead on a goal in the fifth minute, the Martlet soccer captain responded with an unassisted strike to give McGill new life. The Rouge et Or would eventually take the game, but Green’s outstanding play is a big reason why the Martlets currently own a winning record in one of the toughest divisions in the country. In her final year with the team, Green already has three goals and an assist through six conference games.
