KSS and Mt. Boucherie at home Saturday for high school football action

Two Central Okanagan teams will kick off B.C. high school football’s exhibition season this weekend in Kelowna.

On Saturday at 10 a.m. on the CNC turf, the KSS Owls will take on the Raymond Comets from Alberta.

Then at 2 p.m., the Mt. Boucherie Bears will battle Ballenas Secondary from Vancouver Island.

The Owls are being coached this year for the first time by Ben Macauley, while Mike Goodwin is back for his 13th season as head coach of the Bears.

Kelowna’s other team, the Rutland Voodoos—coached by Peter McCall—will open their pre-season Saturday, Sept. 12 at home to Prince George Secondary School.

KSS and Boucherie will play out of the Eastern Conference this season with five other teams, including St. Thomas More and Terry Fox.

The Owls and Bears will meet in the regular season opener Oct. 2 at the Apple Bowl.

The Voodoos will play out of the Pacific Division with Salmon Arm and Handsworth, among others.
