January 28, 2014, Victoria (ISN) – We have two exhibition games on Saturday, with the Academy playing the Saxons at 11:30am (at Wallace Field), and the Valhallians playing the Vikes at 1pm (Velox).

Sunday should be a big day at the club, with the 3rds hosting CW at 12:30. Following that, the club is open for the Superbowl and the annual chili contest at half time.
