Patterson, Campbell earn athlete of the week honours

A pair of hockey players get the nod as Subway Pronghorn Athletes of the Week following their performances in the first weekend of the second half of the Canada West season.

Former Canada West first team all-star goaltender Crystal Patterson made a combined 61 saves for the Pronghorns women's hockey program as it earned a split in Regina this past weekend.

Friday night, in the Horns' first game back after the semester break, Patterson turned aside 32 shots in regulation and overtime and then stopped all three Cougar shooters in the shootout to propel the Horns to a 3-2 win. She also recorded an assist on the Horns' second goal of the game, the first in her Canada West career.

The next night, Patterson stopped 29 of 31 shots and kept the Horns in the game as they were outshot 31-19 in a 2-1 loss.

Patterson has started eight straight games for the Horns and sports a 2.26 goals-against-average and a 0.927 save percentage.

On the men's side, second-year defenceman Tim Campbell continued his solid play for the Pronghorns and was a key contributor as the club earned a weekend split with the visiting Regina Cougars.

The Thornhill, ON product recorded two shots on goal and was a minus one in the Horns' 3-0 loss to the Regina Cougars but went head-to-head versus the Cougars top players and was key to the Horns killing off two of three Regina power plays.

The next night, the Horns put an end to their 10-game losing streak as Campbell assisted on the eventual game-winning goal in a 4-1 victory. He also recorded another three shots on net and was a plus one on the night.

Through 18 games this season, Campbell leads the ‘Horns in shots on goal with 44 and has recorded a goal and six assists from his blueline position.
