The exhibition run concludes on Sept. 20 against the Mount Douglas Rams, with the regular season opening on Sept. 26 when Mission travels to North Delta to take on the Seaquam Seahawks. The juniors will be competing in the AAA Pacific division, battling for a playoff spot against Centennial, Earl Marriott, Nanaimo District, Spectrum, Sullivan Heights, W.J. Mouat and West Vancouver.
The seniors opened the exhibition schedule with a 7-6 loss to Langley at home on Sept. 7.
