The undefeated Kamloops Heat men's soccer team will be back on the pitch Thursday.

The Heat, which is 5-0-2 in Pacific Coast Soccer League reserve men's play, is to play host to the Penticton Pinnacles today, 8 p.m., at Hillside Stadium. The game was originally to have been played on April 28, but was postponed.

Kamloops' roster is made up mostly of future, current or past TRU WolfPack players, but will be facing one of its own in Penticton's goal. Travis Froehlich, the WolfPack's starting goalkeeper, has been spending the summer playing with the Pinnacles.

After Thursday night's match, the Heat will be at home to Chilliwack FC on Sunday, 2 p.m., at Hillside.

Meanwhile, the Heat women's premier squad, which hasn't played since June 23, is headed west for a pair of weekend games.

The Heat (3-3-2), is scheduled to play the Fraser Valley Action on Saturday in Langley, before taking on the North Shore Eagles in North Vancouver on Sunday. Kamloops also will be on the road Wednesday, when it is to take on Okanagan FC in Kelowna.
