The Université Laval women’s rugby team’s season came to an end when they allowed two quick tries in the final minutes of the first half to the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees on Oct. 26. They could not recover from the deficit and lost the Réseau du Sport Étudiant du Québec (RSEQ) final by a score of 40-19.
