The Estevan Viragos are looking for a win this weekend as they take on Regina at home on Saturday.
They're looking to improve following a 43-8 loss to Moosomin last Saturday, with work going into practices.
Offensive Coordinator Matthew McGillivray explains that they've been putting in a lot of effort.
“We have a number of younger players on our team currently, but like I said, they've come a long way. We've been practicing since early August, but the main focus, as I've seen, has been blocking has been improved as well and we've had a couple of longer runs during our games, which is good to see. So that's always nice.”
“We practice three days a week. The girls are very committed. We have a core group of about 13 to 16 girls who are extremely committed, which is good to see. They get along well.“
McGillivray says the team has been looking to improve in a couple of different areas.
“We've worked well on blocking as well as defensive schemes. That's the main thing at our level is to get those blocks on offense as well as the defensive schemes on defense. So that's what we were talking about mainly this year and as well as tackling, that's always an issue sometimes in the lower level of minor football.”
The team also has new jerseys this year, so McGillivray encourages everyone to come out and watch the game this Saturday at 6 at Woodlawn Athletic Park.
