MHS Plays Today

Moncton High School’s Purple Knights will play their final game in their first season of Canadian Football when they travel to Harkins Academy of Newcastle, today, Nov. 10th

The Knights held an intersquad game Oct. 13th, and then entertained the Lancaster Ti-Cats on Oct. 20th in front of the largest crowd in 10 years ** (Note: previous crowds must have watched their earlier rugby football games) ** They played their shortest and coldest game of the year at Barnhill Field, Saint John, vs Lancaster, and fell victim to the oldest trick in the books, the “sleeper” play. They then took on Harkins at the MHS Athletic Field, Church St . , and put on their best offensive and defensive effort in front of an appreciative crowd. ** (No date for this game vs Harkins, but most likely Sat. Nov. 3rd )**
