Fifth-year Pandas soccer defender Jamie Pasemko is the Sherlock Holmes Athlete of the Week following her tremendous performance in the Pandas season-opening weekend. Pasemko's play helped the Pandas obtain four of a possible six points against the Calgary Dinos and Lethbridge Pronghorns. 

Pasemko, who was recently named captain of the Pandas, led them both offensively and defensibly in Saturday's 1-0 win over the U SPORTS No. 7 ranked Dinos. The Edmonton, AB native assisted on the lone Alberta goal, sending in a beautifully executed set piece into the Dinos box, before rookie Georgia Tansley netted her first career goal.

The veteran defender was also responsible for a pair of saves inside her own crease, saving keeper Cassie Bazzarelli with a pair of foot-saves on the goal line. 

Pasemko was just as solid on Sunday, exhibiting poise and creativity throughout the match, however, the Pandas were unable to capitalize on their chances in a 0-0 draw. 

Pasemko and the 1-0-1 Pandas will return to the pitch this weekend, as they visit the undefeated MacEwan Griffins and the UNBC Timberwolves.
