TRU WolfPack clubs undefeated in Kelowna

Fraser named Canada West men's soccer player of the week

Both TRU WolfPack soccer squads avoided defeat on the weekend in Kelowna, where the UBC Okanagan Heat played host to a pair of Canada West doubleheaders.

On Sunday, James Fraser scored the lone goal for the WolfPack men in a 1-1 draw with UBC Okanagan (0-1-3). The women played to a nil-nil draw.

"We are super young and have to keep reminding ourselves of that," WolfPack women’s head coach Mark Pennington told TRU Sports Information. "There are some players that have never played at this level before, so we'll get a bit more confident, find some more composure and be more clinical moving forward."

Fraser played the hero on Saturday, his 90th-minute header securing a 2-1 triumph for the Pack. He was on Monday named Canada West men's soccer player of the week.

"It's pretty exciting for the fans, but definitely for the coaching staff it puts a couple extra years on our life for sure," WolfPack men’s head coach John Antulov told TRU Sports Information.

Mikkel Rosenlund also scored for TRU, which is undefeated after four matches, with one win and three ties.

Maria Iannone helped the WolfPack women pick up their first point of the Canada West campaign on Saturday.

She scored the only goal for the visitors in a 1-1 draw with the Heat (0-2-2).

The WolfPack women are 0-2-2 on the campaign.

Both TRU clubs will travel to Vancouver Island this weekend to play the Victoria Vikes.
