Vernon’s Kirsten Dodds is the PacWest women’s soccer Player of the Week.

The second-year Heat forward was an absolute terror for the opposition last weekend in two crucial UBC Okanagan wins which secured the Heat a provincial tournament spot.

Dodds drew an early penalty kick and netted the winner on a fabulous solo effort as the Heat tripped up Squamish’s Quest University Kermodes 3-1 Sunday at Nonis Field in Kelowna.

On Saturday, Dodds drew enough attention that she was able to cross the ball to her teammate, Lindsey Briggs, who scored the insurance goal in a 2-0 win over second-place Langara Falcons 2-0.
