After a pair of dominating weekend wins, including a 6-0 victory over Lethbridge and a 6-1 triumph over Calgary, the Trinity Western women’s soccer team moved up to No. 3 in the second national coaches’ poll of the campaign.

The Spartans had an impressive weekend as they outscored the opposition 12-1 and outshot the opposition 59-4.

After opening the season at No. 4, the Spartans wins helped move them past Queen’s into No. 3, as the Gaels dropped from No. 1 to No. 4.
