The UBC Okanagan Heat women's soccer team got silver at the PACWEST provincial soccer final for the second year in a row after falling to their interior rivals, the Thompson Rivers WolfPack, 1-0 on Saturday night.
"We played well for sure," says second year forward Madeleine Greig of Penticton. "We just couldn't put it away."
TRU striker Alanna Bekkering scored the winner in the final minute of the first half.
Third year Heat goalkeeper Christine Tallon made countless saves throughout the game, but the Heat offense was unable to capitalize when they had the chance in the second half.
Defender Hayley Carlson hit the crossbar on a header off of a cross from defender Jennifer Kidd and Vernon's Kirsten Dodds had a great opportunity inside the 6-yard box, but the Heat were unable to convert either opportunity into a goal.
"Heartbreaking for us. The girls left it all out on the field. I couldn't ask for more," says Heat Head Coach, Claire Paterson.
"I'm very proud of them. It was only our second loss this season. We have come a long way in the past five years."
Bekkering was named tournament MVP for the second straight year, while Heat defender Jennifer Kidd was named Tournament All-star Defender and Christine Tallon earned the title of Tournament All-star Goalkeeper.
Bekkering was named top forward and Quest’s Jessica Freeman earned top midfielder to round out the all-stars for the tournament.
