Bisons’ kicker, Maya Turner, makes history becoming first woman to play, score in regular-season U Sports football game

September 25, 2023 — 

Manitoba Bisons’ kicker, Maya Turner, made history on Saturday becoming the first woman to play and score in a regular-season U Sports football game. She kicked two field goals, including the game-winner in overtime, taking the Bisons’ to a 27-24 victory over the University of Regina Rams at IG Field.
She spoke to several local and national media outlets about this historic moment and what it meant to her.

Coach Brian Dobie has said the CFL has reached out to wanting to mark the moment by asking if any of Turner’s gear could be donated to the hall of fame for a future display.
