couldn't "vencer" be used as well here?

Vencer we often use to "win"

Can't it be amiga?

Yes, but you also need to change the possessive: "sua amiga". If that wasn't accepted, please report the whole sentence as being correct the next time you run into it again.

Why was is not amigo?

"Amigo" is a correct answer. Maybe you made an error in the sentence around it :)

Why was "o seu amigo" wrong?
