The Saskatoon Hilltops' 2017 home opener will be a historic game as well.
The Toppers will host the Ottawa Sooners Saturday, August 26 at Saskatoon Minor Football Field in one of six inter-locking junior football games between teams from the Prairie Football Conference and the Ontario Conference. Not only will it be the 71st home opener in Hilltops' history, but it will be the first-ever Saskatoon regular-season home game against a team from outside the Prairie provinces. This is a re-match of the 1991 Canadian Bowl...a game the Toppers won 41-27 at Gordie Howe Bowl. Last year, Saskatoon travelled to Kelowna and crushed the Okanagan Sun of the B-C Conference 58-2 in one of last year's two Inter-Conference contests.
