Recent results

- The Heat last time out notched their first win of the season hanging on to beat Lethbridge (1-0). Eliminated from the playoffs the Heat will try and keep the solid results coming going into the last weekend of the year.  

 

Graduates

- UBC Okanagan will celebrate the careers of four players calling it a career due to graduation or using up their eligibility. Lauren Candelario, Emma Nelsen and two Nelson, BC products, Andrea Stinson and Brittany Wheeler will all hang up their cleats following Sunday's match and will be honoured with a ceremony prior to the match with UNBC. 

 

Scouting the Griffins

- With a (7-4-1) record the Griffins were hoping to play for a top-2 seed in the playoffs, but with the Victoria draw Friday night, second is out of reach for MacEwan - as the Vikes hold the tiebreak. 

- MacEwan comes into the weekend off a 1-1 draw at Winnipeg and 1-0 win over Manitoba on their last road trip.

 

Overall Head to Head (UBCO v GMU) (0W-2L-0T)

- These teams played the first game of the year against each other in Edmonton with MacEwan upending the Heat 3-0.

Scouting the Timberwolves

- The Timberwolves are (3-7-2) with 11 points and are in sixth place in a division where the top six teams make the post season.  

- This past weekend they were on the road in Mantioba where they beat Manitoba (1-0) and then played Winnipeg to a scoreless draw.

- The 'Wolves can clinch a postseason berth with a win over TRU on Saturday eliminating the WolfPack from playoff contention. 

Overall Head to Head (UBCO v UNBC) (2W-2L-4T)

In match two this season the home UNBC squad held on for a 2-1 in Prince George. Last year these two teams played both matches against each other in Kelowna. UBCO won the first 3-0 and then they tied 1-1 in the mid-October bout.
