Late goal deprives Heat of point at UBC

Thunderdbirds score late on Saturday to edge UBC Okanagan in Canada West men's soccer

The UBC Okanagan Heat managed one point against two of the top teams in the country, but couldn’t be blamed for feeling like maybe they deserved a little better fate in Canada West soccer action.

After playing to a draw at the University of Victoria Friday, a late goal the following night deprived the Heat of another point against the UBC Thunderbirds.

On Saturday, the T’Birds scored in the dying seconds of play to pull out a 2-1 victory over UBCO.

Kerman Pannu retrieved a rebound from Tate Cuthill in stoppage time, then slotted it home for the game winner.

Luke Warkentin scored the lone goal for the Heat against the No. 4 ranked Thunderbirds in the 51st minute.

On Friday, the Heat showed some resilience against the Vikes, battling back from a two-goal deficit for a 2-2 tie.

Brandon McCallum got the Heat on the board with the first goal of his four-year career late in the first half.

In the 66th minute, UBCO was awarded with a penalty kick and Enzo Paal made no mistake to even the count for the Heat.

Saturday’s loss, however, didn’t cost UBC Okanagan a position in the standings, as the Heat remains in fifth place, two points behind Trinity Western with a (1-3-1) record.

The Heat will go back on the road next weekend, first facing the UFV Cascades at Exhibition Field in Chilliwack at 4 p.m.

On Saturday UBC Okanagan will journey to Langley to play Trinity Western at 7:15 p.m. at Rogers Park.
