AFL: Hurricanes prepare for semi-final battle against Seawolves

It’s simple. Win or go home.

That’s the scenario the Holland College Hurricanes Football Club faces heading into semi-final action this weekend against the University of New Brunswick Saint John Seawolves.

After competing head-to-head for the Moosehead Cup in the previous two seasons, only one will be playing in the championship game, while the other will be left wondering what could’ve been.

“The guys understand that this is a single game elimination and every rep is important,” said head coach Kyle Quinlan. “It will take everything we’ve got to win this game, so there is no taking them lightly.”

This will be the third time the teams meet. The Hurricanes won the previous two matchups and expect nothing less than the Seawolves’ best.

“Both teams will be very familiar with each other’s personnel and schemes, so it will come down to executing when it matters.”

Coming off their first defeat of the season, the Hurricanes look to turn their fortunes around with a weekend win.

“We will need to take care of the ball and play physical but disciplined football to come out on top,” Quinlan said.

The two teams will face off Oct. 31 at 1 p.m. at the UPEI Alumni Canada Games Place.
