YORKTON – The Yorkton Regional High School Raiders opened their 2022 season with a decisive win over the Moose Jaw Vanier Vikings at Kinsmen Century Field on Friday, September 2nd.
Yorkton This Week spoke with Raiders Head Coach, Roby Sharpe, about the team's upcoming season.
"It's one of those things—it's still a little too early to tell," said Sharpe of his initial take on the team.
"Obviously that's a nice way to start," said Sharpe, adding, "we looked good."
Sharpe said he was happy with the win, but the team was back on the field Sunday afternoon preparing for their next challenge.
"We've got Weyburn and it's payback—Weyburn beat us in the final last year," said Sharpe of their next opponent, adding, "we need to be ready."
The Weyburn Eagles will visit the city on September 9th when the two teams take the field at 7:00 p.m. for their Friday Night Lights matchup.
"Good crowd, good opponent—that'll be the real test for us—to see how good we really are," said Sharpe of the upcoming contest.
