Claremont trio end Vikes career

A last minute goal on a desperate effort by the UBC Okanagan Heat ended the UVic Vikes men’s soccer season on Saturday. The Heat edged the Vikes 3-2, in what was the final university level game for Claremont secondary grads Sam Prette, Adam Ravenhill and Noah Pawlowski.

“It’s been an honour and I’ve met a lot of great guys,” Pawlowski said. “The competition has been really high in the league and this has been a huge addition to my time at UVic. It’s been a fantastic privilege,”

Isaac Koch and Jyotish Khanna scored the Vikes’ goals.

“The key has been remembering that we are here to do our best and give it an honest effort each game,” Pawlowski said. “It can be easy to get down because everyone is passionate and we all want to win, but a lot of emphasis has been put on staying positive.”

The Vikes missed the playoffs after finishing with six wins in 17 games.
