“We’ve had this refrain too often this year. Poor starts. Poor 15 minutes in the first half and getting it together. We have had a glass ceiling of poor play in the first half and digging us holes that are too big for us to get out of.  We made a couple of changes in the second half. A couple of our starters wound up on the bench for the start of that half. The subs went in and played great. We had a great second half with renewed passion and enthusiasm,” TRU head coach Kelly Shantz said.

UP NEXT:

Both teams finish the regular season on Sunday, Oct. 23. The Cougars will go to Nonis Field at UBCO to meet the Heat for a 1 pm kick off.

The Wolf Pack  will entertain the University of Saskatchewan Huskies. It’s the first time that the Huskies women’s soccer program have ever played in Kamloops and Hillside Stadium. Kickoff is 1 pm. The ‘Pack will honor their lone graduating player. Katie Harding (3rd year, midfield, Salmon Arm, BC) still has U Sport eligibility left but she is poised to graduate this spring from the Thompson Rivers University Nursing program.
