The Vancouver Island University Mariners are the defending CCAA men’s soccer silver medalists and one of the most physically tough teams in the league. None of that mattered to the Heat men’s soccer team as they fought VIU valiantly through rainy conditions Saturday afternoon, ultimately falling to the Mariners 4-2.
“They’re a physical team,” Heat coach Dante Zanatta said after the match of VIU. “I thought for the vast majority of the game it wasn’t anything dirty. It was just a physical soccer game.”

A penalty-kick proved to be the difference for the Heat in their season opener, as fifth-year senior and four-time PACWEST all-star Jennifer Kidd (Richmond, BC) earned the Heat their first win of the 2013 season, a 2-1 victory over the visiting Vancouver Island Mariners at Nonis Sports Field this Saturday (Sep 7).
