For the first time in this province’s history, there will be a Female Minor Tackle Football game, and it will take place tomorrow night (Wed) in Moosomin.
It will feature a match-up between the only two minor female tackle football teams in Saskatchewan, the Moosomin Generals and Melville Vipers.
John Svenson, is the president of Melville Vipers Minor Football and he says its something that was came together this spring.
“When they got their team going, we quickly got ours going, now we have two teams in Saskatchewan, so Wednesday’s game is definitely going to be a historic one as the first Female minor tackle football game ever.”
Svenson adds that he thinks that both teams are pretty excited to get into game action.
“When a big event is coming up there always some excitement and some nerves, the girls have put in a lot of work and improved substantially from practice to practice, and it’s going to be good game whatever the outcome is and its something that is long time coming.
Game time on Wednesday, May 30th will be at 7PM at Generals Battlefield in Moosomin.
