Rodkin and El-Chanti named Athletes of the Week
Salad King Athletes of the Week
The first Athlete of the Week is Abdallah El-Chanti (Toronto) of the men's soccer team. The third year midfielder sits atop the OUA goal scoring leaderboard after the season's opening weekend. El-Chanti scored the first goal of the season for the Rams on Saturday in the eighth minute against UOIT, a game the Rams went on to win 2-1. On Sunday, El-Chanti had a breakout game, netting four goals in the first 15 minutes of play. The midfielder capitalized on give-aways but was also able to create opportunities for himself and score creatively in the Rams second win of the weekend.
Alex Rodkin (Whitby, Ont.) is our second Athlete of the Week. The fourth year striker with the women's soccer team had a strong start to her season, scoring Ryerson's opening goal of the season on Saturday. Rodkin headed home the game-winning goal as the Rams defeated UOIT, 1-0. The next day Rodkin was unable to find the back of the net but created chance after chance for Ryerson, and finished with 11 shots over the course of the two games to rank second in the OUA.
Both student-athletes will receive a $20 gift certificate to Salad King.
