Game log: Sunday, Oct. 28 – 2 goals, 1 assist, three shots on goal in a 3-1 UBC home win over UNBC (CW quarter-final).

The Canada West’s regular season goal scoring leader nearly single-handedly punched UBC’s ticket into this weekend’s Final Four with two goals, setting up another and firing three shots on net in UBC's 3-1 quarter-final win over UNBC. 

Steer scored her first of the post-season in the 13th minute of Sunday’s quarter-final matchup at Thunderbird Stadium to give UBC the early lead. Just three minutes later, she played the ball forward to Margaret Hadley who gave the ‘Birds a 2-0 lead with a low shot that stood up as the game-winner.

Steer added her second of the game on an 88th minute penalty kick to seal the victory.

After finishing the regular season as the points per game leader, Steer is tied atop the playoff scoring race with two goals and three points.

The T-Birds will face the Calgary Dinos Friday afternoon in Langley for a berth in the Canada West gold medal match, looking to get back to the U SPORTS national championship tournament for the third time in the last four seasons.

Game log: Friday, Oct. 5 – goal and three assists in 6-1 home win over Victoria.

After missing the previous week’s road trip, Danielle Steer returned to UBC's lineup effective as ever, scoring her seventh goal of the year while matching a season-high with three assists in a dominant performance over the visiting Victoria Vikes Friday night. 

Now with seven goals and eight assists on the season, Steer’s 15 points is second highest in the conference, while leading the Canada West in points per game at 1.9.

The second-year forward has scored in each of her last three games and has at least a point in all but one of her starts this season. 

The Thunderbirds have won five games in a row and will look to inch closer to locking up a home playoff berth when they visit the Saskatchewan Huskies and Regina Cougars this weekend.
