Edmonton Wildcats Prepare for Winnipeg Rifles

The Edmonton Wildcats travel to Winnipeg this weekend to take on the Winnipeg Rifles on Saturday August 15th 12:00pm at Canad Inn Stadium. A win on Saturday will keep them atop the PFC conference and a strong start to the season.

After putting away the Calgary Colts 35 – 21 in last weekend’s season opener at Clarke Park, the Wildcats are looking to continue their success in Winnipeg.

The defense looked very strong in that contest holding the Colts to only 7 points in the second half.

On offense the Wildcats started to jell showing some consistency especially in the second half, putting together some key drives. Special teams dominated in that game and as a result, one of our players received special team’s player of the week.

Special Teams Player of the Week
