Vernon’s Enzo Paal scored as the Heat opened the Thanksgiving series with a 1-1 draw Friday night in Kelowna.

The Heat opened the scoring Sunday in the eight minute when Luke Warkentin broke in hard to the box and got the ball and buried it low on Travis Froehlich for his fourth of the season.

TRU’s goal came in the 61st minute when Khalifa Fanne was hauled down by Manny Straith in the box.  The ensuing penalty kick was taken by Mitch Popadynetz who buried it for his first of the campaign.

Towering Tait Cuthill was named player of the match for the Heat in the win, recording nine saves. He leads all keepers in Canada West with 51 on the season.

On Friday, Ryan Granville of TRU went bottom right corner in the 13th minute, Third-year midfielder Mike Harvey set up Granville for his sixth of the season.

The relentless Heat continued to press and eventually earned themselves a penalty in the 42nd minute. Paal converted the PK as he deftly sent the TRU keeper the wrong way. Froelich kept things level when he made a save on Heat forward Cole Kingzett in a one-on-one chance.
