The Swift Current Comp. Colts Football team will open the regular season in the Moose Jaw High School Football League when they host the Moose Jaw Vanier Vikings on Friday at 4:30 p.m.
It should be a tough test for the Colts with the Vikings coming off a 22-0 win over the two-time defending champion Moose Jaw AE Peacock Tornadoes last Thursday.
"It's really important for us to have a solid start," said coach Derek Murdoch. "Being a younger team, we just want to come out strong and limit any big plays or mistakes right off the bat. If we can get the ball to our athletes on our offence, we're confident that they'll make plays. Our defense can make plays too, but it will be a matter of stepping up and making tackles on their athletes."
Next Saturday the Colts will be on the road as they head to Moose Jaw for a championship rematch against the Tornadoes at 3:15 p.m. at Gutheridge Field.
