    VANCOUVER – After going undefeated on Saturday to open the second stop of the Canada West Women's Rugby Sevens series, the University of Victoria Vikes and the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns are leading the way heading into the event's final day on Sunday.
     
    Highlighted by a 55-0 victory over the UBC Okanagan Heat, the Vikes closed out the round robin with narrow victories over the Calgary Dinos, 20-17, and the host UBC Thunderbirds, 14-12.
     
    The Vikes were led offensively by Brook Bazian as the third-year back racked up three tries over the course of the opening day. They got contributions from their entire team as 12 different players recorded at least one try. 
     
    The Vikes will battle the University of Alberta in a semifinal Sunday. 
     
    As for the Pronghorns, they cruised through their first two games, outscoring their opponents 58-0. They called upon a come-from-behind effort to close out the round-robin portion of the event scoring 15 unanswered points to defeat the University of Alberta Pandas, 15-14. 
     
    Lethbridge will play the host Thunderbirds, who went 2-1 on the day, tomorrow morning in the other semifinal. On the consolation side, the Calgary Dinos (1-2), Trinity Western Spartans (1-2), Fraser Valley Cascades (0-3) and the UBC Okanagan Heat (0-3) will all be battling for some crucial series points.
