Sabercat varsity coach Matt Premo told Saultsports.com that “our formula for success is going to stay the same as it has for the previous three weeks before the bye. We are going to rely on our defence to keep the opponent in check and help us win the field position battle. Offensively this week our goal is consistency, we want to see more sustained drives and I think if we can do that we will be very successful. We hope to see the return of Tristian Marshall this week who has been limited since week one. His return should be able to help us solidify a ground game that will be needed come playoff time.”
