Bisons, Wesmen Meet to Finish Duckworth Challenge

A crosstown rivalry will be reignited tonight as the Manitoba Bisons and University of Winnipeg Wesmen meet in the 21st annual Duckworth Challenge.

The men’s and women’s volleyball teams will finish the second part of the challenge, which opened up with basketball back in December.


The Wesmen will play at home as they welcome the U of M to the Duckworth Centre, but the Bisons will be on the hunt to retain the Duckworth trophy they won in the 2010-11 season with a 3-1 victory.

The Winnipeg men go into the challenge ranked 10th in CIS standings at 7-11, while Manitoba is ranked second with 14-2. The U of M women are sixth (9-7), while Winnipeg is fifth (12-6).

Tickets are available at the door. Game time is  6 p.m. (women) and 7:30 p.m. (men).
