With the win the Sabres improved to 3-1 in the Winnipeg High School Football League's Junior Varsity Division.
The SRSS will take on Vincent Massey on Wednesday, October 18th in Winnipeg.

"Next weeks game against Vincent Massey will be a great challenge for our team," commented Friesen. "We know that we are beatable, as shown two weeks ago when we met Oak Park. With that said, our staff and players see this game as a playoff preview and an important measuring stick game to see what we need to tighten up and prepare for come playoffs."
