It may just be a few weeks into the Canadian Football League season but the Estevan Comprehensive School Elecs football season is also just around the corner.
The team will start their practices Aug. 22 and play an exhibition scrimmage at Weyburn Aug. 31 in advance of the Moose Jaw High School Football League season.
The regular season will start with a bye week but will kick off with a busy stretch starting Sept. 14 in Moose Jaw against Peacock, last year’s league finalist.
The home schedule kicks off Tuesday, Sept. 18 at 4 p.m. against Moose Jaw Vanier Vikings, and continues Sept. 22 at home to the Weyburn Comprehensive School Eagles.
The other home game is Sept. 29 at 1 p.m. against Swift Current before the Elecs hit the road for a pair of games Oct. 4 at Moose Jaw Central and Oct. 9 at Yorkton, who won the league last year.
The league final is scheduled for Oct. 27, with the provincial semifinal Nov. 3 in Moose Jaw and the provincial final Nov. 10 in Regina.
