Regina Riot Vs. Manitoba Fearless

Regina RiotHockey and basketball still have another month to run, and baseball is just hitting its stride, at the pro ranks anyway, and that can mean only one thing — football season will soon be upon us.

First out of the gate is Regina’s entry in the Prairie Conference of the Western Women’s Canadian Football League. On Sunday May 10 they’ll be playing their home opener of the 2015 season against the Manitoba Fearless. The game goes at Mosaic Stadium at noon and tickets are $10, with children 12 and under admitted free.

You can find out more about the Regina Riot by visiting the team’s website. The Riot play an abbreviated schedule of four regular season games with the possibility of playoffs after that.

In addition to Sunday’s game, the Riot will host their provincial rival the Saskatoon Valkyries on Sunday May 17 at Mosaic Stadium at 7 p.m. Then they’ll be on the road for games against the Valkyries in Saskatoon on Saturday May 30 (SMF Field at 7 p.m.) and the Nomads Wolkpack in Winnipeg on Sunday June 7.

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
