The Winnipeg Rifles dominated in their 2017 season opener against the Ottawa Sooners. It was no question that the Rifles had the upper hand right from the get go and their momentum held strong throughout the entire game.
"It was historic in the sense that it was the first PFC game against Ontario so our guys were pretty excited" said head coach Geordie Wilson. "We played a hard game and we feel optimistic moving forward".
The Rifles are carrying their momentum into their game against the Saskatoon Hilltops this weekend. Returning players know they have a challenging game ahead.
"They're a very bread and butter team they stick to the same play book, same route combo, same run schemes, everything. So basically I'm just watching last year's film just basically preparing myself for a repeat of what they do over and over again" said Andrew Ricard.
The Rifles home opener takes place this Sunday August 20th at 1 PM at St. Vital Mustang's Field. Tickets will be available at the door for purchase.
