After a hot start, the Edmonton Prospects have dropped two in a row to bring their overall record to 4-3. However, the rest of the week provides little relief, as the team hosts the defending WCBL champion Medicine Hat Mavericks on Wednesday evening. Following Wednesday’s action, the team heads south to take on a familiar foe in the Brooks Bombers, with the team returning home for a pair of weekend games against the Okotoks Dawgs. The two-game set from RE/MAX Field begins Saturday at 7:05 pm, with Sunday being a 2:05 matinee. For more information and to pick up tickets, visit the team’s official ticketing site.

Stingers Look For First Road Victory
Mike Malowany |

It’s been a tale of two teams thus far for the Edmonton Stingers; while the team is undefeated at home following a trio of thrilling games at the Edmonton Expo Centre, the Stingers are 0-2 on the road with a combined score of 214-149. However, the team looks to change that stat with a pair of games on Thursday and Friday. First up, the Stingers head to Saskatoon looking to take both ends of their home-and-home series with the Saskatchewan Rattlers (3-3) following a gutsy victory at home last Friday. The battle from the Snake Pit goes Thursday at 7 pm. Following Thursday’s tilt, the Stingers return home for their first back-to-back of the season, hosting the winless Fraser Valley Bandits (0-5) at the Edmonton Expo Centre. Tip-off Friday night is 7 pm. Both games are viewable on CEBLTV.

Eddies Look to Rebound

After their original date was *literally* smoked out, the Eddies lost a tough 1-0 match to a game Valour squad from Winnipeg. Now, they have to put their league schedule aside as they will have a tough test this week, taking on the York 9 this Wednesday as part of the Canadian Championships, the Qualifiers for the CONCACAF Champions League. The first match is at York University Field, while the second half of the home-and-home will be at Clarke Park on Wednesday, June 12.
