Bisons Advance to Playoffs in Soccer, Football

October 22, 2012 9:18 AM | Sports

The University of Manitoba women’s soccer team is off to the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

The Bisons wrapped up the 2012 Canada West regular season by earning a 1-1 tie at Mount Royal on Saturday, and a 3-0 loss to Alberta on Sunday.

“Our first goal was achieved by making the playoffs,” said head coach Hadyn Sloane-Seale. “We are happy and I said to the players to applaud their effort and now we have to get ready and prepare hard for a difficult team in Trinity.”

The Bisons will now face the number one seed Trinity Western Spartans (11-1-0) on Friday, October 26 at 7 p.m. CT. The game will be broadcast live at CanadaWest.TV.

The Bisons football team has also earned a playoff spot after their 37-31 win over UBC at University Stadium on Saturday. It’s the first time the Herd has advanced to the playoffs since 2007 — the year they won the Vanier Cup.
