Gurneet Dhaliwal of the University of the Fraser Valley women’s soccer team has been named the Canada West female second star of the week.

Dhaliwal, a rookie forward/midfielder, scored two huge second-half goals on Saturday vs. the UBC Okanagan Heat to secure a victory and a six-point weekend for the Cascades.

The score was tied 1-1 at halftime, but Dhaliwal went to work after the break, striking twice in three minutes to boost UFV to a 3-1 win. The Surrey, B.C. native was dangerous all game long, tying for team-high honours with three shots on target.

The Canada West female first star of the week was Natasha Loucks (Calgary Dinos rugby), and the third star was Amanda Kurianowicz (Victoria Vikes field hockey).

The CIS No. 6-ranked Cascades, who also posted a 1-0 win over Thompson Rivers on Friday, are unbeaten in Canada West regular season action at 3-0-1 and sit second in the West Division.

UFV will look to stay on a roll as they play their first road games this week – Friday at the Alberta Pandas, and Sunday at the UNBC Timberwolves.
