In the final regular season match of the year, the UBC Okanagan Heat were all business on Sunday as they beat the Capilano University Blues 4-1, scoring an impressive four goals in a second half offensive explosion.
"I wish we could have scored like that at the start of the year," mused Heat head coach Dante Zanatta. "Good for the team and for the guys that are graduating. To put four in the goal shows that we’re trying to do the right things and maybe we just didnt have soccer luck at the start of the year."

In the dying minutes of injury time, UBC Okanagan Heat midfielder Sean Causier (5th year, Port Moody, BC) put away the equalizer to give the Heat a 1-1 tie against the nationally 6th ranked Vancouver Island University Mariners.
"The guys continue to try and play football as we've asked them," commented Heat head coach Dante Zanatta. "It's unfortunate that some of those bounces that we're getting now at the end of the year didn't come earlier in the year."

A late goal by freshman midfielder Matthew McHugh (Kelowna, BC) proved to be the equalizer and final goal of the game, as the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack and the UBC Okanagan Heat played to a 1-1 draw in men’s soccer action on Saturday (Sep. 29).
McHugh’s goal was the result of a nifty free-kick play set up by midfielder Sean Causier (5th year, Port Moody, BC) in the 80th minute. McHugh took the beautiful feed and buried the shot from five yards out to revive the Heat, who had been down a goal since TRU defender Corey Wallis (2nd year, Kelowna, BC) buried a shot from 12 yards out in the 40th minute.
