WHSFL | Week 2 Preview

The Winnipeg High School Football League season is still in its infancy, but the Week 2 schedule should begin to provide some concrete answers for 2017.

Here are some of the storylines to keep an eye on:

  • The St. Paul’s Crusaders and Vincent Massey Trojans – the last two champions of the Potter Division – meet in an early showdown Saturday afternoon at Massey. The defending-champion Crusaders won their opener 39-1 over the Sisler Spartans while the Trojans will be seeing their first action of the season after they won by default in Week 1 due to Murdoch MacKay folding its program.
  • What kind of follow-up performance might Fort Frances Muskies running back Sekina Scheibler serve up in Week 2? He rushed 19 times for 309 yards and an incredible six touchdowns in the Muskies win over Maples last week. Fort Frances plays host to Beaver Brae of Kenora on Friday.
  • Can the Dakota Lancers, who opened with a 15-6 win over the Steinbach Sabres, improve to 2-0 as they travel to Oak Park to take on the 0-1 Raiders Friday?
  • Will the Kelvin Clippers be able to serve up another dominant performance after opening their Vidruk Division season with a 38-2 victory over Portage Collegiate Trojans? The Clippers are home to St. Paul’s (AA) Thursday.
