Stuck in a strong division with a pair of other southern Alberta squads, the Ambrose Lions knew they needed a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. They did just that, downing the winless UAA Vikings 5-2. Maria Hernandez scored once in each half as the Lions jumped out to a 3-0 lead. Augustana made it interesting with goals from Demi Vermeer and Kara Strange less than six minutes apart to cut the lead to one. But late goals by Rachel Wolf and Kaitlin Vail on a penalty kick secured the win. The Lions are now 3-1 and await the outcome of the SAIT versus Lethbridge game to learn their playoff fate.
