The 5’3” midfielder started the scoring at the 37th minute mark after potting home a rebound and then headed her second tally at the 44th minute mark.

The Bison men’s hockey team started their 2017-18 conference season at home against the UBC Thunderbirds on October 7-8 and earned a hard fought weekend split.
Bison third year defenceman Adam Henry was strong on both sides of the ice as he contributed three assists, nine shots and -1 plus/minus rating and four penalty minutes while playing on starting defenceman pair throughout the weekend.
In the first game, the Bisons were unsuccessful in a late period comeback and fell 6-4 to UBC and Henry added one assist, two shots and a -2 while playing almost 30 minutes of play as the Herd only dressed five defenceman during the weekend.
The next afternoon, Henry spearheaded the comeback from a 2-0 deficit as Manitoba won 3-2. The second time alternate captain was the catalyst on the first goal as he passed to Kamerin Nault for a power play goal in the second. Then, the 5’11” defenceman took the point shot that was deflected by captain Brett Stovin for the eventual game-winner with under eight minutes left in the game. He added four penalty minutes and was a +1 for the win.
Henry is tied for fourth with three conference assists and tied for second with nine shots in CW action after two games.
