Burlington, Ont. – Ashley Mlinaric has been named Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Female Athlete of the Week for the period ending October 13, 2019.
Female Athlete of the Week – Ashley Mlinaric, Nipissing Lakers, Soccer
There was plenty for the Nipissing Lakers women’s soccer team to be thankful for this Sunday, but when it comes to their latest result on the pitch, they might owe an extra bit of thanks to Ashley Mlinaric (Mississauga, Ont.).
It was all Nipissing in their tilt with Trent this past weekend, as the Lakers barraged the Excalibur to the tune of five goals scored in their shutout victory. At the heart of the Lakers attack was Mlinaric, as she accounted for three of her team’s tallies. The rookie midfielder notched the opening goal in the 10th minute, before doubling her total before the end of the half. She would complete the trifecta just 13 minutes into the second half and help secure the decisive win for her squad.
It was the first career OUA hat trick for Mlinaric, who now leads the Lakers in goals with six on the year.
