Coach's Take
Rick Farrally, Vikes assistant coach
"This is a vital game on Saturday if we have any aspirations/intentions of being in the Barnard Cup Final in early December. James Bay are undefeated at this point of the fall season, so in order for us to qualify for the Cup we must overtake Castaways in the standings. It's a big, big game so we need a good result”
