Stettler pair worked together for ‘constant threat offensively’

Red Deer College Queens women’s soccer coach David Colley commented on the contributions of Stettler rookies

Red Deer College Queens women’s soccer coach David Colley commented on the contributions of Stettler rookies Paula Dadensky and Terra Salmon this past season in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Association:

PAULA DADENSKY

“Paula led the line very well and was a strong player with her back to the goal. She was great at finding the last defender to act as a target for balls from the midfield and defence. This trait, coupled with her ability to shield and hold the ball until support arrived or to lay it off accurately and with her first touch, gave us tremendous attacking options. She scored a lot of goals and could have scored more, but I chose to rest her for some matches because I needed her abilities for some matches against tighter opposition and she had accumulated two yellow cards in the previous matches. I found Paula to be able to handle the pressure that playing alone and up front brings with it, which is no mean feat for a first-year athlete and that is all credit to her.

“This year has illustrated that Paula is an adaptable player who will work for her teammates and is able to take setbacks and come right on back to do her job to a high standard. She deserved the ACAC rookie-of-the-year award because she performed very well in a new system with a new coaching philosophy.”

TERRA SALMON

“Terra came to the college after playing forward for Red Deer’s AMSL team. The tryout squad was blessed with riches in that position, so she slotted into the wide midfield position for the Queens’ first pre-season friendly against Mount Royal University, found she was effective there and never looked back. She made the left-wing position her own and was a constant threat offensively, either on her own or in linking up with Paula Dadensky and Claire Wallace; but she never neglected her defensive role, either, and tackled hard, as well as covered well for any defender that pushed up in the attack.

“Terra worked intelligently and tirelessly for the entire time she was on the field and scored some vital goals in some important matches, especially the one she netted in the bronze-medal match at the ACAC championships.”
