Montana Leonard tied for the conference lead in goals

Leonard also had a pair of goals earlier this month against UBC Okanagan and helped her team salvage a 1-1 draw with Thompson Rivers. The fourth-year McMath graduate is well on her way over surpassing her season best goal total of eight.

She ranks first on the conference in shots (27) and tied with Saskatchewan’s Maya Gabruch in goals. 

Calgary is currently tied for top spot in the conference standings with Trinity Western. Victoria (3-1-0) and UBC (2-0-2) sit third and fourth respectively. 

The Dinos will host Trinity Western on Oct. 6 and travel to Vancouver on Oct. 18 to take on UBC.
