KELOWNA, B.C. – With a playoff berth already sealed, the UBC Okanagan Heat women's soccer team were playing for playoff seeding and momentum in Saturday afternoon's matchup with the Langara Falcons. While Langara kept up with UBC Okanagan in the first half, the second half was all Heat as they put away three goals to take the match 3-0 and exact their revenge on the visiting Falcons.
"I thought the girls played a solid 90 minutes today," reflected Head head coach Claire Paterson, whose team lost to Langara, 2-0 in Richmond earlier in the season. "It was really good to see them come out fired up, trying to gain some momentum going into playoffs next week and get that feeling for goals. We created lots of chances and put three nice goals away today."
After a first half of near misses on offense for both teams the dam opened up for the Heat in the second 45, as they notched all three of their goals in the second.

For the second time in two games, Michelle Smith (3rd year, Vernon, BC) got the Heat on the board first, and her goal would stand as the game winner as the Heat defeated the visiting Capilano Blues 2-0 Sunday at Nonis Sports Field.
After a huge save by Blues goalkeeper Ariel Anderson (3rd year, Burnaby, BC) in the 60th minute, a mad scramble formed in front of the Capilano net in search of the rebound. A frantic Anderson was helplessly bowled over in the chaos, leaving the net wide open for Smith. She put a light touch on the ball, and it sailed over the flattened Anderson for the Heat's first goal.

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).
After being hauled down in the box in the 70th minute, a composed Kidd buried the PK just past the outstretched arms of Mariner GK Shelby Walker (3rd year, Victoria, BC) to put the Heat up for good, 2-1.
