The game was halted for approximately 15 minutes at the 60-minute mark due to a thick fog that enveloped Coulter Field.

VANCOUVER - The No. 5-ranked UBC Thunderbirds dropped their first game of the 2010 season, losing at home against the No. 4-ranked Alberta Pandas. Alberta capitalized on a pair of corner kicks as the prairie visitors prevailed 2-0 at Thunderbird Park.
Pandas-T-Birds Game Stats
The rapidly improving Pandas (5-0-0), who moved four spots and ahead of UBC in this weeks' CIS rankings, provided the first true test of the season for the Thunderbirds (3-1-1).
"It was a frustrating night for us. We took too long to get motivated and that allowed Alberta to put the sword to us", said UBC head coach Mark Rogers.
Rogers' frustration stemmed from his side's inability to defend Alberta's corner kicks. Alberta's first goal came off a short corner quickly taken by midfielder Elise Emmott. Emmott surprised the UBC defence by sliding the ball high to defender Keshia Wallin. Wallin was then allowed to penetrate the T-Birds' back line and send a dangerous cross into the box that found the head of Carleigh Miller who bounced the ball into the heart of UBC's goal.
