It came down the wire Sunday (Sept 30), with the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack squeaking out a 1-0 win versus the UBC Okanagan Heat in Kamloops. The game’s only goal came in the 81st minute off the boot of WolfPack striker Oriol Torres (2nd year, Barcelona, Spain).
Both teams exchanged quality chances early in the game. The Heat’s best chance came in the first 45 minutes, as Kennedy Hindley (4th year, Vancouver, BC) came in from his defender position and almost put one past WolfPack keeper Travis Froehlich (2nd year, Revelstoke, BC).
Despite the late goal by Torres, the Heat had a great chance to tie the game late into injury time. The equalizing shot came from defender Ernesto Rosario (2nd year, Burnaby, BC), who’s shot fell just short of the WolfPack net.
“With this rivalry, games are always good,” said Heat coach Dante Zanatta. “We are two evenly matched teams. I’m a little disappointed with our effort this weekend; we need to get a little better around the net.”
The Heat still find themselves without a win this season, as their current record stands at 0W-4D-4L with six games remaining in the 2012 PACWEST season.
UBC Okanagan will look for a better result next weekend, in their last road trip of the year, traveling to Newton Athletic Park to face Kwantlen Polytechnic University on October 6th. The following day, the Heat will travel to Coquitlam to take on the Douglas College Royals. Both games are scheduled for 2 p.m.
