ROOKIE OF THE YEAR: Alliyah Rowe, Cape Breton

 

 An arts student from Kitchener, Ont., Rowe had a dominant first season with the Capers. She led the AUS and tied for second nationally in goals with 14 on the season. Her 15 total points tied her for first in the conference and ranked fifth in U SPORTS. 

 

She started in all 12 regular-season games for the Capers this season and was named Subway AUS Player of the Game on three occasions – Sept. 14 versus Dalhousie, Oct. 5 versus Mount Allison and Oct. 26 versus Moncton.  

 

Rowe scored two goals and assisted on a third in the AUS final as the Capers won their third consecutive title with a 3-2 victory. Rowe also tied for first in the conference in game-winning goals this season with five. 

 

She becomes the second consecutive Caper to take home U SPORTS women's soccer Rookie of the Year honours, joining teammate Erin Freeman, who won the award last season. 

 

 "Alliyah  has been an impact with our team since day one. She shows great composure on the ball as she leads our front line," said Cape Breton head coach Ness Timmons, "She possesses a high soccer IQ, and is constantly working to improve her game. She is a true pleasure to coach."
