The Sudbury Spartans will take to the field on home turf this Saturday July 7 looking for revenge as they face the Sault Ste. Marie Steelers at James Jerome Field at 7:30 p.m. 

The Spartans will be hungry to post a win at home after dropping two tough road contests the past few weeks. 

On Saturday June 16, in Sault Ste. Marie, the Spartans dropped a 23-10 final to the Steelers after leading at the end of the third quarter. The bye week, rest and practice should prove valuable to the Spartan squad as they fight for post season position.

This Saturday’s game is sponsored by Journal Printing who will be on-hand with prizes for lucky fans.

This weekend, partnered with Molson-Coors, the Spartans are pleased to present the Dellelce Family hospitality beer section that is open for fans 19+ to enjoy cold beverages during the final regular season game for fans ticketed at the event. 

The game goes on, rain or shine, so come on out, and cheer on your Sudbury Spartans.  

“The guys have been working hard and the record doesn’t really reflect the growth in this team this season,” said Spartans Head Coach Junior Labrosse. 

“We have come along way this year, but we have more to go. I believe this team can advance in the West standings and that’s our goal right now. The remainder of the season schedule gives us the opportunity to control our destiny.”

With this game being the last regular season game this season, Saturday’s game can elevate the team to .500 at home this year and set the tone for the final two road games before the play-offs. 

In the West Division, the Spartans are competing with the Steelers and the Tri-City Outlaws for second place which would give them home field advantage for the quarter final play-off match-ups.

Tickets for Saturday’s game will be available at the gate for $10 each. 

Football players and fans from all area high schools as well as the Joe MacDonald Football Youth League are welcomed to attend.  

As well, for those considering taking in some music later Saturday evening and looking for something to do before heading over to the Northern Lights Festival Boreal, come enjoy the Northern Rivalry Game before the evening talent at the Grace Hartman Amphitheatre.
