In a last-ditch effort to make the Canada West playoffs, the Bisons women’s soccer team won both of its final games of the season, beating the University of Winnipeg Wesmen 1-0 and 3-1.

But although the old adage says “defence wins championships,” the objective of the game is still to outscore your opponent. Thankfully for the herd, it has just the pieces required to take the club to the next level.
