Saint John pulls out of game this week­end

In­juries, lack of play­ers rea­sons why Saint John won’t play Hur­ri­canes

Journal Pioneer - - SPORTS -

The Saint John Sea­wolves has for­feited the game slated for Satur­day against the Hol­land Hur­ri­canes, of­fi­cials an­nounced Thurs­day.

The for­fei­ture is due to Sea­wolves’ in­juries and the re­sult­ing lack of able play­ers. Hur­ri­canes head coach Ross Young said the for­fei­ture is re­gret­table, but that the ‘Canes will still be on the field Satur­day for train­ing if fans would like to come out to see the team, which was look­ing for­ward to play­ing only its sec­ond home game of the sea­son.

“It’s an un­for­tu­nate turn of events for both teams,” Young said. “Our play­ers, prospects, and their fam­i­lies were look­ing for­ward to Satur­day’s game, so we’ll be on the field from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. to prac­tice, and look for­ward to demon­strat­ing how the team is shap­ing up as we near the end of the sea­son.” The Hur­ri­canes will go up against the Dal­housie Tigers on Satur­day, Oct. 21, at 1 p.m. as sched­uled, in a game that will de­ter­mine the fi­nal place­ments for the sea­son, and the matchups for the play­offs. The prac­tice on Satur­day and the game next week will be on the ‘Cane’s home field, MacA­dam Field at UPEI Alumni Canada Games Place.
