KELOWNA, B.C. – Thompson Rivers visited UBC Okanagan Saturday for a women’s rugby BC 1st Division contest that would go down to the wire until the hometown Heat would edge out a 21-20 margin in victory.

The Heat’s Jasmine Doll would wrap up with one try and two conversions, while Danielle Fearns and Kelsey Wuerstil got on the board with a try apiece. Angie Williams would chip in a conversion to round out the team’s scoring.

The back’s in the game never really were a factor in the game as the Heat relied on their forwards to grind out a win as part of coach Rob O’Brien’s game plan.

“In a strategy designed to counter Kamloops strength in its centers, the Heat started Jasmine Doll at stand off and this proved to be a key to the win,” explained coach O’Brien.

“Early in the game Jasmine powered in from 10 metres out to start the scoring and then converted her try for a 7-0 lead. She then used her kicking skills to put pressure on the Raiders full back and wings. This helped disrupt the Raiders defence enabling the score tries by Danielle Fearns and Kelsey Wuerstl, who had a great game at full back and was named back of the game. Jordan Pittman, was selected as forward of the game. Our win was secured because we converted all of our trys, Angie Williams, converted one and Jasmine Doll converted the other two.”
