AFL: Resilient Hurriances set eyes on first place finish

With the season winding down, the Holland College Hurricanes Football Club will look to clinch a first place finish in a road contest against the University of New Brunswick Saint John Seawolves this Saturday at 7 p.m. at Canada Games Stadium.

This is the second time the teams have met this year. In their first matchup, the Hurricanes defeated the Seawolves 21-9 at home. Since then, the Hurricanes (4-0) have gone undefeated, while the Seawolves (0-4) look for their first win.

Despite the varying records, head coach Kyle Quinlan is taking nothing for granted and is making sure his team is focused and prepared.

“They played us tough the first time around and I expect more of the same this weekend. Our mindset is to not underestimate our opponent, regardless of their record.”

Coming off back-to-back victories in which they trailed in the first half, the Hurricanes are hoping to capitalize on their resiliency.

“Anytime you can come from behind to win games, it builds character and confidence within the locker room,” Quinlan said. “We are well aware that we are going to get our opponent’s best every week, so we will need to weather the storm early and impose our will throughout the remainder of the game.”
