If the UNBC Timberwolves are saving the best for last, it will have to come at the expense of a rough middle.

The T-Wolves men’s soccer team suffered a loss and a tie this Thanksgiving long weekend in Kamloops against the TRU Wolfpack.

On Sunday, UNBC escaped with a 3-3 tie against a Wolfpack squad currently outside of the Canada West playoff picture.

Abou Cisse struck first for the Timberwolves ripping one past TRU goalkeeper Jackson Gardener for an early 1-0 lead.

After a Thomas Lantmeeters goal evened the score at half-time, leading to a wild-finish where both teams scored a combined four goals in 14 minutes.

With Thompson Rivers leading 2-1 with less than three minutes remaining, Cody Gysbers rippled the mesh tying the game at two.

Extra-time proved to be an entirely different animal as both Justin Donaldson (TRU) and Emmanuel Drame both scored in the dying seconds to secure the draw.

UNBC dropped a 3-1 decision on Saturday to the Wolfpack.

Donaldson, James Fraser, and Koffi Nyavor rippled the onion bag for TRU while Conrad Rowlands replied for the Timberwolves.

Impact freshmen Michael Henman and Pierre Barrafranca did not play in either game for UNBC.

The T-Wolves drop to 4-3-4 on the season, while the Wolfpack improve to 3-6-3.

UNBC welcomes the UBCO Heat (2-6-4) next Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM from Masich Place Stadium.
