The Holland College Hurricanes football team will look to go 1-1 when the squad hits the road to square off against the UNBSJ Seawolves on Saturday in Saint John, N.B. Game time is 1 p.m.

After a 30-14 loss to UNB Fredericton to start the season last week, ‘Canes head coach Ross Young and his coaching staff broke down the game film to correct basic mistakes made on both sides of the ball.

“They’ve been preparing for Saint John all week. The Seawolves bring a lot of pressure from the defence. They do expect the blitz and a read option run play game. The Seawolves also get good yardage on the ground from their running game. It’ll keep the Hurricanes players on their toes,” Young said.

Defensive tackle Rashayne Nelson, defensive back Douglas Sawyer and defensive end Tyler Hobbs return to the lineup Saturday.
