On Thursday, September 13 the Sandy Bay T-Wolves were sporting new visiting jerseys for the their game against Cumberland House. Both teams were unbeaten in their first game so an unbeaten record was on the line. The game was a nail biter for the hometown Cumberland fans who watched the game go back and forth, tied at the end of the first and third quarters. Two touchdowns by Keith Fiddler led the Islanders to a 34-28 victory. Cory Spencer scored three touchdowns for the Sandy Bay T- Wolves.
On Friday, September 14, in 9-aside action, the La Ronge Churchill Chargers travelled to Tisdale to take on the Tornadoes for a Friday Night Lights game.
