Burgess, a fourth-year science student from Halifax, scored
three of the Huskies’ four goals last weekend in St.
John’s as Saint Mary’s (3-4-3) picked up a pair of 2-0
road wins over Memorial to improve their playoff positioning. The
prolific striker, who is tied for the AUS lead with six goals in 10
outings, netted the insurance marker in the second half of
Saturday’s series-opening victory and accounted for all the
scoring on Sunday. With three games remaining in conference play,
the Huskies are fifth in the AUS standings, just one point clear of
the sixth and final playoff spot.
Concordia rugby player Jackie Tittley and soccer players Amanda Ngwafusi of Carleton and Carrie Nash of Manitoba were also nominated for the women’s award.
