Williams, Duce earn Horns awards

Erica Williams and Morgan Duce were named Subway Pronghorns Athletes of the Week after strong efforts over the weekend as Canada West play resumed on a variety of fronts.

Williams, who plays for the Horns women's hockey team, kickstarted a Pronghorn rally that salvaged a point against University of Saskatchewan. With the 'Horns down 3-0 heading into the third period Saturday night, the second-year forward helped to force overtime by scoring two goals. The 'Horns went on to drop a 4-3 decision in overtime but earned a valuable point in the tight Canada West standings.

On the season, Williams has already surpassed her freshman totals from last year and is sixth on the 'Horns in scoring with 3 goals and 4 assists.

In men's basketball play, college transfer Morgan Duce kicked off the second half of the season in style. Duce scored a combined 33 points over the 'Horns' two-game swing in BC and scored well over his season average in both contests.

Friday night, Duce scored 16 points in the 'Horns' loss to the Trinity Western Spartans. He was tied for the team high with Daryl Cooper and hit on 5-of-9 shots from the field.

The next night, in the 'Horns' victory over the CIS 9th ranked Fraser Valley Cascades, Duce scored 17 points to go along with four rebounds and three assists. He was again 5-of-9 from the field and 4-of-7 from behind the three point line.

On the season, Duce sits third on the 'Horns scoring list, averaging 9.8 points per game.
