Heat women squad set for first home game of season

UBC Okanagan are 0-2 and are looking for some home-field advantage this weekend

The UBC Okanagan women’s soccer team are looking for some home-field advantages this weekend.

It’s the home-opener for the Heat this weekend in double-header action with games at UBCO on Friday and Saturday. The Heat dropped their first games of the season last week, being outscored 8-0 in games against Calgary and the University of Northern BC.

In the first home games of the season, the Heat’s young core will look to get the offence kick-started. It will be two tough games for UBCO who play two top-5 teams this weekend in the MacEwan Griffins and the Alberta Golden Bears.

Games start at 5:30 p.m. at Nonis Field.
