Enviro Clean Cougars of the Week: Alex Goldoni and Zach Kaniecki
Alex Goldoni had an incredible performance in the Senior Varsity Chatham-Kent Cougars season finale, throwing 6 touchdown passes in their 53-30 win over the Niagara Storm. Goldoni totalled 327-passing yards in the game.
“Alex has been a great team leader all year and really stepped up in his last game as a Cougar. Alex is moving on to Western next year and will be a huge hole to fill at the QB position,” says Senior Varsity Coach James Clarke of Goldoni.
Last year’s Dr. Jack Parry Award winner, Goldoni is a multi-sport athlete who is attending the University of Western Ontario this Fall. “Alex Goldoni has been an excellent QB for McGregor and due to injury in other sports, this has been Alex’s first full season as a Cougar player and we are thrilled with his results this season,” says Cougars President Selwyn Jordan. “Alex has chosen Western business program and has been invited to try out for the Western team which will be an exciting opportunity for Alex. Alex is an intelligent player and had a good grasp of the playbook, so when Alex called plays and audiles it was like having another coach on the field.”
Zach Kaniecki topped the Junior Varsity Cougars defense with 9 solo tackles and 7 assists in their 30-16 win over the Niagara Storm.
“Zach Kaniecki has been a key part of our defence all year. He stepped up to play a different position due to some players on vacation. Zach is a hard hitting defender with a great mind for the game. He’s been a leader of our team,” says Junior Varsity coach Mike Newman of Kaniecki.
Cougars President Selwyn Jordan also had high praises for the UCC student, who Jordan hopes will follow his parents footsteps and become a Windsor Lancer in the future, “Zach Kaniecki is a natural leader, is a runner and hitter as a safety on defense, and has won an Ontario OFC Championship. Zach has the speed to play defensive back but hits like a linebacker. Zach has contact courage and enjoys hitting through his opponents,” commented Jordan.
