EDMONTON – Choucair had a five-point weekend (three goals, two assists) in leading the MacEwan Griffins to a pair of dominant wins during a weekend road trip to the Okanagan.

In Friday night’s 4-0 win at Thompson Rivers University, the fifth-year midfielder set up the opening goal off a free kick before really taking over the game in the second half. Choucair scored a beauty in the 59th minute when she intercepted a ball at midfield and ran to the top of the box untouched before ripping it top corner. She then converted a penalty kick in the 65th minute.

In Saturday night’s 5-0 win at UBC-Okanagan, Choucair again factored prominently in the proceedings with a goal and an assist. She curled in a strike from the top of the box in the 22nd minute for MacEwan’s second tally of the contest and then set up the Griffins’ fifth goal by rookie Sunder West.

Choucair is currently tied for the Canada West scoring lead with six points on the season.

She will lead the Griffins into home action this weekend vs. UFV (Saturday, 12 p.m., Commonwealth Stadium) and Trinity Western (Sunday, 12 p.m., Clarke Stadium).
