“Everyone understands the importance of this game and what’ll happen if we lose.” This is what the Varsity Captain, Dominic Prezioso, said when asked about the game against Belvidere this Saturday. The North Warren Patriots will be faced against the Belvidere Seaters in a crucial match for both sides. The game is scheduled to start at 6:30pm at the home of the Patriots.
The Patriots are searching for their first win of the season against the Seaters to improve to a 1-3 record.

We are hungry for that win.” The team has learned from its past fixtures and are ready to turn the season around. In his final statement, Prezioso said, “Everyone understands the importance of this game and what will happen if we lose.
