St. Paul, MN - With the weekend closing out and The Fargo Invaders clinching their division, the Twin Cities Sabercats had an unexpected weekend off. Scheduled to play the West Central Broncos, the Sabercats were preparing to get on the road and rematch the blue and orange. The game was cancelled and the Broncos had to forfeit due to field issues.
Coming up the NSFL has a bye week for all teams to observe the Fourth of July holiday weekend, but that doesn't mean that the teams are resting. The Sabercats host the undefeated Fargo Invaders in North St. Paul on July 9th at 2pm and with the rankings at Fargo, number 1 and Sabercats, number 2, will hopefully prove to be a battle of the best. The players and coaches are watching film and strategizing for the game that will prove to be something fans will not want to miss.
The Twin Cities Sabercats had some unfortunate injuries this season and their starting Quarterback Nick Liebelt sustained some major setbacks after getting tackled at the South Metro Patriots. Nick, an alumni of the University of Wisconsin River Falls suffered a fractured clavicle and a broken sternum as well as a possible concussion in the 4th quarter in Burnsville, Mn. The team rallied after Nick was taken to the hospital by ambulance and managed to win the game in the very last seconds.
Head Coach Duane Rosen and his coaching staff are not strangers to having to adapt to personnel changes and when asked stated, "this isn't how we envisioned the season, but we are embracing it and doing a pretty good job".
The Twin Cities Sabercats are the only team to have put any points on the board against the Fargo Invaders and are looking to be the first team to get a win against the veteran team.
