Heat lose 1-0 in Snoozefest

On Saturday, the Heat hosted the Bakersfield Condors and their new “Hitch Hockey” mentality. With their current standings, every point is vital to Stockton’s playoff hopes.

Heat stop Reign, get eaten by Barracuda

The Heat headed into last weekend with a 10-10-1 record and, while sitting in a playoff spot in points, they are really in the cellar based on the number of games played.
