Austin Jones scored twice over the weekend as the UBC Okanagan Heat won two games on the road in PACWEST soccer.

Two road wins pulls Heat men into tie for first

UBCO victorious at Langara and Quest to move up in PACWEST soccer

A pair of victories on the road has boosted the UBC Okanagan Heat into a first place tie in PACWEST men’s soccer.

On Saturday in Richmond, the Heat held off the Langara Falcons for a 3-2 victory. Enzo Paal, Danny Chahal and Austin Jones tallied to give UBCO a 3-0 lead, before the No. 6-ranked Falcons made it interesting with two late goals on a slippery pitch.

On a rainy Sunday in Squamish, the Heat took down the Quest Kermodes 4-1.

Lucas Krivak, with a pair, Austin Jones and Jorden Leib tallied for UBCO, now 4-1-1 on the season and tied for top spot with TRU.

“The boys controlled the vast majority of the game,” said Heat head coach Dante Zanatta said of Sunday’s win. “There were only a few instances on set pieces where I felt we weren’t as strong.”

UBCO is back on the road this weekend, with matches Saturday in Nanaimo against the Vancouver Island Univesity Mariners, and Sunday in North Van vs the Capilano Blues.

Heat women

The UBCO women came up empty in back-to-back games for the first time this season.

On Saturday in Richmond, the Langara Falcons blanked the Heat 2-0.

Midfielder Mairi Horth was the Heat’s player of the game, generating her team’s best chances down the stretch of the match despite not being able to convert.

On Sunday, the Heat’s lack of scoring touch was evident again in a 3-0 loss to Quest on a rainy in Squamish.

“It was definitely not the result we were looking for,” said Heat head coach Claire Paterson following the game. “Unfortunately some errors on our part let us down but the good thing is that errors are always fixable and we will be working hard this week to get back on track.”

The Heat (3-2-1) will hit the road once again this weekend to resume PACWEST play, traveling to Nanaimo to face Vancouver Island University on Saturday, then to North Vancouver to face Capilano University on Sunday.
