The Cape Breton Screaming Eagles are pleased to announce that on Friday, October 13th, the club will honour the Sydney Sooners at the Screaming Eagles’ home game against the Halifax Mooseheads. As the Screaming Eagles take on the Mooseheads in the first instalment of 2017-18’s Battle of Nova Scotia, they will honour the 2017 Nova Scotia Senior Baseball League (NSSBL) champions.
The Sooners captured the 2017 NSSBL championship, the club’s third title in five years, by defeating the Dartmouth Moosehead Dry in six games in the best of seven league final. Sydney topped Dartmouth 3-2 in the sixth game of the series at Susan McEachern Memorial Ball Park in Sydney on October 6th.
Friday’s night game against the Mooseheads marks the beginning of the QMJHL’s Rivalry Week. Tickets for Friday’s night game and all future Screaming Eagle home games can be purchased at the Centre 200 box office, by phone at 902-564-2200 or online at https://tickets.capebreton.ca.
