After a weekend split last week, the Jr. Blues continue their pre-season schedule this weekend. The Jr. Blues beat St. Louis University on Friday night but dropped Saturday's game to the Springfield Jr. Blues 5-0. Head Coach Chris Flaugher said, "It's good to play against both teams. The first is older, more physical, more patient with the puck. The second team is a team and a level that most of our players are still aspiring to play."
Up next on Friday and Saturday at 7:00 p.m. is a weekend series with the Missouri State Bears. Flaugher continued, "This will be a great series. There are a lot of St. Louis kids and alumni of our program. They get tremendous fan support and have a great team and we are excited to have them visit."
The season opens the weekend of September 13th as the Chicago Bulldogs come to town for a Saturday night and Sunday afternoon series. Game time Saturday is 8:00 p.m. and Sunday is at 1:00 p.m.
