Heat men host UBC in opener Saturday

UBC Okanagan’s Canada West soccer season kicks off this weekend at Nonis Field.

The UBC Okanagan Heat will open the 2017 Canada West men’s soccer season this weekend at home to a pair of familiar foes.

The Heat will face the UBC Thunderbirds on Saturday, followed by the Victoria Vikes on Sunday afternoon at UBCO’s Kelowna campus.

The Heat will then travel to Prince George to take on UNBC on Sunday, Sept. 10.
