(HAMDEN, Conn.) – Shane Reckelt is this week’s pick for Athlete of the Week after his two goal performance against Canisius lifted the Bobcats to a 3-2 victory on Saturday. The junior co-captain scored Quinnipiac’s first goal in the 12th minute after he beat Canisius’ goalie to the right giving the Bobcats a 1-0 lead. Recklet would score his second goal in the 73rd minute, a goal that would prove to be the game winner, when he took a strike at goal after gathering a loose ball in the box. Reckelt leads the Bobcats in game winning goals this season with three and with the two goals Saturday he has tied Co-captain Graciano Brito for the teams lead in goals (4).
The Shelton, Conn native has proved to be a strong scorer as well as a strong defender this season and is a big part in the success of the Bobcats this season. You can see Shane Recklet play in the Bobcat’s next home game when they take on Yale at Bobcat Field Tuesday, September 23.
