TWolves fall to TRU in Kamloops

Brityn Hinsche made nine saves in a heroic performance between the pipes, but it wasn’t enough as the UNBC Timberwolves fell 3-0 to the TRU WolfPack on Friday, September 8th, 2023 in Kamloops, BC.


Buoyed by the large crowd in what was their first home game of the year, the WolfPack came out blazing. UNBC was able to weather the storm early but the game shifted in favour of TRU in the 38th minute when Rumo was fouled in the 18-yard box and the referee awarded the hosts with a penalty kick.
Captain Ainsley Grether stepped up to the spot and delivered a perfect finish to give TRU the 1-0 lead.
The WolfPack outshot UNBC 7-0 in the frame but a couple spectacular saves from Hinsche kept UNBC in the match.
The Timberwolves had their best chance to score in the 55th minute. Third-year forward Kjera Hayman let a curling shot go from the edge of the box that sailed just a little too high and bounced off the crossbar and away from harm.
TRU doubled their lead in the 68th minute. Lufo laid a ball off to Stewart who unleashed a beautiful shot that found the very top corner of the net to give the rookie her first career WolfPack goal in her first game at Hillside stadium.

TRU put the game beyond a shadow of a doubt in the 90th minute when Rumo met a Caylah Lemon corner kick with a thunderous header that bounced off the crossbar and in. The goal was also the first in the WolfPack career for Rumo.
TRU remains at home this weekend and gets set to face the UBC Thunderbirds tomorrow evening inside Hillside in a game scheduled to begin at 5 p.m.
UNBC meanwhile will travel to Kelowna for a clash with the Heat tomorrow.
