The UNBC men’s soccer team was looking for revenge against the UVic Vikes, but couldn’t manage a win in the second game of its opening weekend.
The Vikes opened the scoring in the 11th minute, but Francesco Bartolillo responded with a successful penalty kick to make it 1-1. Matt Jubinville scored for the Timberwolves, making it 2-1 heading into half-time. Jubinville’s second marker of the game extended the lead, but from there, UNBC failed to defend its lead. Four second-half goals gave the Vikes an eventual 5-3 win.
The UNBC men will continue looking for their first win of the season next weekend when they visit UBCO. The female Timberwolves host Thompson Rivers University today at noon.
