May 18, 2022 Saanich, B.C. (ISN) – With three weeks left in the VICFA spring regular season, minor football season teams are preparing for the home race in order to securing a playoff spot for the VICFA Island Minor Football Championships to be held from June 15. .

With a three-team gridlock at the top in both island divisions, Wolverines training had a slight playoff feel to the evening. Saanich, all but assured of a top-four spot in the playoffs, will be looking to secure a first or second home pitch at NDSS Turf Field when the playoffs begin.
