On Sunday, the Heat hosted the Calgary Dinos who’re ranked the No. 6 team in Canada. UBCO opened their season against Calgary in early Septermber in a 5-0 loss.

The improved Heat held their own against the powerhouse Dinos on Sunday in a 1-0 loss.

It was a battle of the defences as UBCO allowed only four shots on goal while Calgary allowed two.

A win and a tight loss to one of the league’s best is a hopeful sign that the Heat are trending in the right direction as they start the second half of the season on Friday.

UBC Okanagan takes on the University of Victoria on Friday before a match with the UBC Thunderbirds on Saturday.
