    VICTORIA – The University of Victoria Vikes ran the table for the second time in the program’s history and won the Canada West conference for the third consecutive year.

    Battling their biggest rival, the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds, the Vikes posted a 29-0 shutout on Sunday afternoon at Wallace Field to win the UVic tournament and the conference championship.

    The Vikes were lucky to appear in the gold medal game, as they trailed by one score late in the semifinals against the University of Alberta Pandas.

    Heidi Farley and Savannah Dubien each produced a try, as they staked the Pandas to a 10-5 lead deep into the second half. Both converts were missed, which left the door open for a late comeback by the Vikes.

    In the bronze medal match, the University of Calgary struck first with a try by Patricia Lively. Following the missed convert, Pandas winger Farley responded with one of her two first half tries moments later.

    Hailey Driscoll added a pair of tries in the fifth-place game, as her University of Lethbridge Pronghorns ended their season on a high note with a 24-5 victory over the Trinity Western University Spartans.

    The University of British Columbia Okanagan Heat were held scoreless on Day 1, but picked up their first win of the season in the seventh-place game when Leah Townsend supplied a pair of tries in a 19-12 decision over the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades.
