Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire ",
Is it too early to talk about the weekend ?
These 4 days weeks and the never ending anticipation that the weather will turn for the better has me thinking Weekend on a Wednesday.
Both Owen Sound lacrosse entries will have a pair of games this weekend.
In Senior, with the jersey controversy now seemingly behind them, the Bug Juice NorthStars will be at Brooklin Friday and then home to Six Nations on Sunday afternoon.
The game at Brooklin will offer the Bug Juice Stars the opportunity to extend a 2 game win streak and also pull even with the Merchants for 3rd place in the league standings.
The game Sunday afternoon at home will be a very good measuring stick for the Senior NorthStars progress as the Rivermen and Oakville looked poised to runaway with the top 2 spots in the league.
You can hear both Bug Juice NorthStar games this weekend on 560 CFOS.
Meanwhile, the Owen Sound Junior NorthStar have a pair of road games this weekend; Saturday night at Point Edward & Sunday afternoon at Wallaceburg.
The magic number for the Junior NorthStars to clinch a playoff spot is 4 and games this weekend against the Pacers and Red Devils, teams that are lower in the standings than Owen Sound, will give the Junior Stars an opportunity to take a giant step towards the post season.
Finally, the other weekend element I'm primed for is the opening of the harness racing season at Hanover Raceway on Saturday night.
Opening Night at the track is always a special night, a homecoming of sorts, and post time for the first race is 7:15 pm.
It's Wednesday, but I'm in a weekend frame of mind.
I'm Fred Wallace
