All three Wolverines teams will be on the road this Saturday and they will be facing very strong opponents. The Bantams travel to Georgetown to face the North Halton Crimson Tide in a 3 pm contest. Both the Jr. Varsity and Sr. Varsity teams will be in Sudbury to battle the Gladiators with the Jr. Varsity game at 1 pm followed by the Sr. Varsity contest at 4 pm. This will certainly be a challenging test for all three teams as they continue to work hard towards capturing their respective division championships.
