The UNB Reds/Papa John’s Pizza male Athlete of the Week is Evan Barker, from the men’s soccer team.

Barker recorded two clean sheets as the Reds earned a draw and a win in two weekend games.

In Saturday’s scoreless draw with Memorial, the fourth-year keeper made seven saves, including one on a Sea-Hawks breakaway.

In Sunday’s 3-0 victory over the UPEI Panthers, he was equally as impressive, making five saves.

“Evan was very solid this weekend, especially when his teammates were struggling on Saturday,” said Reds head coach Miles Pinsent. “We sometimes forget how great Evan is until we need him to be great.”

Barker and his Reds teammates are back in action on Sunday, when UNB hosts the St FX X-Men in a scheduled 3:15pm start.
