Heat men fall to Capilano

UBCO rugby teams lose at home in men's and women's action Saturday at Parkinson

UBCO's Thomas Campbell battles for yards against Capilano in men's rugby action Saturday at the Parkinson Rec Centre.

UBC Okanagan scored first but couldn’t hold off the Capilano U23 squad en route to a 17-7 loss Saturday in men’s rugby action at the Parkinson Rec Centre in Kelowna.

Colin Stonier, a fourth-year veteran, scored all of the points for UBCO, with the early try and the long conversion from the far left for a 7-0 Heat lead.

Capilano got on the board late in the first half as the U23 club team scored a try late to make it a 7-5 game at the break.

The visiting team pulled up their socks in the latter 40 minutes of play to snatch the game from the Heat, scoring two tries and one conversion for the 10-point win.

The Heat return to action Oct. 20 when they host the Hindson Cup.

All games are likely to be played at the City Park Oval in Kelowna, with match times yet to be determined.

Heat women

The Heat women slipped to 0-3 in B.C. Div. 1 play with a 30-10 loss to Kamloops RFC Saturday in Kelowna.

The visitors jumped off the bus and scored 15 straight points in the first 20 minutes of action.

Lauren Klassen ‘hammer dunked’ the ball in the far right side just over the goal line to score the first try for UBCO. The long conversion was too tight of an angle as the Heat cut into the Kamloops lead.

The visitors scored their third try of the first half, converted on two of those and successfully knocked in a pair of penalty kicks to lead by 20 at the half (25-5).

Jasmine Doll scored the UBCO try in the second half much the same way as Klassen in the first as Doll carried several Kamloops players over the goal line and grounded the ball as time expired.

The women’s record now sits (0-3) in the BC Division One League. The Heat will travel to Coquitlam Saturday, Oct. 15 to face off against United.
