The Broncos, Eagles, Muskies, and Thunder Bay football teams met in Kenora August 30 for their annual exhibition. As always, no score was kept. The exhibition is a way for coaches to see how their players perform before the start of the season.

Chris Penner is the head coach for the Beaver Brae Broncos. He say's it's important to see what the athletes can do before the start of a new season.

"Every year is like unwrapping a Christmas present right? It's a surprise. Who has grown, who went to the winter workouts and improved. We're seeing the fruits of that labour," he said.

A running back from Fort Frances was removed from the field, after he lost consciousness during a rough tackle. He'd turned the corner on a sweep and was heading up the sidelines, when tacklers brought him down on a legal play. A doctor was on the scene to provide an initial medical assessment.

While the player felt okay to continue, coaches for the Muskies put the running back on the sidelines.

The regular season starts next week. The Eagles will host Vincent Massey from Brandon on Thursday September 6, while the Broncos will hit the road on Friday September 7 to battle St Norbert.

The Broncos first home game is Thursday September 13.
