Vernon’s Kirsten Dodds scored twice in an 11-minute span as the UBC Heat ambushed the UNBC Timberwolves of Prince George 4-0 in PacWest women’s soccer play Saturday at Nonis Field in Kelowna.

Lindsey Briggs opened the offence in the 19th minute with her third goal of the season. Dodds connected in the 57th and 68th minutes, giving her five goals on the year. Kelsey Satterfield completed the Heat offence at 86 minutes.

The Heat, who lead the Group B standings at 5-1-1, initially failed to get a grasp on the ball and kept battling for possession before taking control in the second half for their third straight win.

In the 19th minute midfielder, Michelle Smith (first year, Vernon) passed across the 18-yard line, allowing Briggs (second year, Delta) to score.

Dodds had a breakaway attempt foiled by keeper Jordan Hall (first year, Prince George), but Dodds quickly recovered from the scramble in the box and made it 2-0. Dodds tallied again in the 68th minute.

Down 3-0 with 15 minutes left, UNBC (0-9)pressed forward with no success, allowing Satterfield (second year, Surrey,) to counter strike for her first goal of the PacWest season.

The Heat play the 5-1-2 Quest University Kermodes of Squamish Saturday at the Nonis Sports Field (1:00 p.m.).

In men’s soccer play Saturday, the Heat battled the T-wolves to a 2-2 draw on goals by Andrew Hauser and Sean Causier.
