Boyle, Finch named Mustangs Athletes of the Week

Western Mustangs soccer player Amanda Boyle and football player Will Finch have been named the Western Mustangs Athletes of the Week for the period ending Sept. 7.

Boyle, a second-year Kinesiology student, helped Western improve to 5-0 on the season with wins over Waterloo, Laurier and Brock. From Vaughan, Boyle found the net in each of the Mustangs three games last week, scoring twice against Waterloo, once versus Laurier, and provided all three goals in the win over Brock. Boyle’s six goals last week propelled her to the top of the OUA and CIS leaderboard with 10 goals so far this season.

Finch, a third-year Social Science student, led the Mustangs to a 61-0 win over the York Lions in Western’s season opener on Saturday. The Burlington, Ont., native threw for 253 yards and three touchdowns on 21-for-25 passing, while also earning 50 yards on the ground on seven rushing attempts.
