The UNB Varsity Reds/Papa John’s Pizza female Athlete of the Week is Jelisa Joncas, from the women’s soccer team.

Joncas scored the opening goal in UNB’s quarter-final upset of the No. 3 seed Dalhousie Tigers at the Atlantic University Sport women’s soccer championship.

She also drew the penalty shot that led to the V-Reds second goal in that game.

“Jelisa was a dangerous attacking force throughout the game for us in our quarter-final win,” says Varsity Reds head coach Jon Crossland. “She made a great run to get on the end of a long ball and gave us a dream start, scoring in the second minute. On the penalty, she out ran a defender before being take down by the Dal keeper.”

“Jel was a large part of our strong second half of the season. She showed everyone how dangerous she can be, and is just starting to scratch the surface of her potential.”
