Eskimos continue to show progress

With a final home game on June 17 (kickoff at 13.00 at Södra Sunderbyn IP), the Eskimos continue to build for the future. Now at 1 win and 4 losses in Division One East, the Eskimos would like to win their final home game of the year before taking a few weeks off so families can enjoy some vacation time together and players can heal bodies and minds. The team will then continue with once-per-week practices (for junior and senior players) in August and September, in order to work on what we have learned from this season and build for 2018.

Eskimos 1-2 at the halfway point…

After an opening 48-0 loss away at a super-series level team, theSTU Northside Bulls, the Eskimos came back the following week with a 50-0 win at another away game against the Telge Truckers. With each game, the Eskimos improve after having sat out the last five years in seriesspel.  Now with a 26-0 loss at their first home game in six years, on May 27 against the Arlanda Jets, the Eskimos look to continue their improvement in the second half of the season with two remaining home games (June 3 against Västerås and June 17 against the Upplands Bro Broncos) and a final away game down at Djurgården on June 10.
