As the Winnipeg Free Press reports

The University of Manitoba Bisons women’s hockey team is the 2017-18 Canada West champion after sweeping the University of Saskatchewan Huskies in the conference best-of-three series over the weekend.

The No. 1-ranked Bisons followed up a 1-0 overtime win on Friday by defeating the No. 8 Huskies 5-2 on Saturday, with both games played at home at the Wayne Fleming Arena on the U of M campus. It’s the first Canada West title for the women’s team on home ice in the program’s 21-year history.

“To do it at home finally is so special for this group,” said Bisons head coach Jon Rempel in a statement. “It’s been a long time since we have had one, and all the hard work for the last four or five years for this group paid off.”
