TWU got off to a good start to its season with a 2-1 victory over the Fraser Falley Cascades. Jenaya Robertson scored in the 83rd minute to seal the victory for the Spartans. 

After finishing with the conference silver medal a season ago, the Spartans were picked second in the coaches poll and are currently ranked No. 4 in the CIS Top 10.

Manitoba is in search of just its second win in the month of October as they look to stay in the mix for a top playoff seed.

The Bisons face Regina on Saturday before travelling to Saskatoon. Manitoba will finish the regular season at home against UBC and Victoria.

Manitoba is led offensively by Selina Speranza and Amanda Wong with seven points respectively. Speranze has five goals and two assists with Wong recording two goals and five assists.
