On Saturday in Langley, despite being outshot 19-1, UBCO earned a 1-1 draw with the Trinity Western Spartans.

Trinity Western’s Elijah Adekugbe scored the Spartans lone goal late in the second half to salvage the tie after the Heat’s second-year forward, Cole Kingzett had opened the scoring earlier in the half with UBCO’s only shot of the game.

Tait Cuthill, making his eight straight start in net for UBC Okanagan was busy all night, turning away four of the five shots on goal by the Spartans. With the four-point weekend, the Heat remains in fifth place in the conference at 2-4-2.

Friday night’s game will be at Nonis Field in Kelowna, with Saturday’s going in Kamloops.

The WolfPack (sixth in the conference) will both be making a final push for the playoffs in the heated rivalry.
