The Manitoba Bison women’s soccer team celebrated a pre-season 2-0 win Friday night over the visiting University of Minnesota Crookston Golden Eagles.
The teams played on the U of M turf fields before the Herd begins their regular season next weekend.
The Bisons pushed the play from the opening kickoff, owning the time of possession early on. Several chances were thwarted by Crookston keeper Lexie Gauger, but the Bisons would open the scoring at the 24-minute mark. Brazilian recruit Bruna
Mavignier converted a pass from Alyssa Robinson from just inside the top of the penalty area to put the Bisons up 1-0.
