The Saskatoon Valkyries advanced to the Women’s Canadian Football League (WWCFL) championship game with a 29-14 victory over their provincial rivals, the Regina Riot. The Prairie Conference Final was held June 19 at SMF Field.

It’s been almost a full year since the Valkyries saw their hopes for a fifth straight WWCFL title crushed by their biggest rival.

Regina was attempting to defend their 2015 league championship but Saskatoon had a shot at redemption and they took it.
