Nicole Evans of the Niagara College women’s soccer program has been named this week’s female athlete of the week. The second year midfielder recorded her first career goal during her team’s tough luck 2-1 loss to the visiting Humber Hawks on September 12th.
“Nicole has really matured in her second year as a Knight” said Niagara College women’s soccer head coach Frank DeChellis. “She is playing with more confidence and understands the physical demands of playing football at this level. Her goal Saturday was the result of hard work at training and attentiveness to improving what she is good at, and developing the aspects of her game that need work.”
Evans is a native of Chatsworth, Ontario. She suited up for the Knights six times during the 2014-15 season. Her first career OCAA goal came in spectacular fashion, as the Fitness and Health Promotion student converted one a ‘turnaround’ strike from just outside the 18 yard box in the 58th minute.
Evans and the rest of the Niagara College women’s soccer program will return to action on Saturday September 19th when the team visits the Sheridan Bruins.
