The 2008 Dakota Athletic Conference opener will kick off this Saturday in Mayville, North Dakota as the Yellow Jackets will take on the Mayville State University Comets.  Mayville will enter the game this Saturday 1-2 coming off last weekends loss to Dakota State University 33-13.  “It is really important for us to get off to a good start in the conference season.  We learned last season after dropping our conference opener how tough it is to bounce back from” said Head Coach John Scott.  Mayville State is a very athletic team that matches up with anybody in the conference.

“The Comets are very aggressive defensively and will bring a ton of pressure to our offense” added Coach Scott.  Offensively Mayville is a little bit different than the past as they are using their running game more often making their offensive attack even more consistent.  

The Yellow Jackets will look to handle their defensive pressure and look to maintain their poise and confidence on offense as the game goes on.  “We also need to whether the storm of emotion as it is Mayville’s first home game this weekend” said Coach Scott.

Kickoff will be at 1:30pm CST in Mayville, North Dakota.  The Yellow Jackets are looking to build on their 2-1 start to the 2008 season.  You can catch the game live on the Mayville State University Athletic Website through pay per view.
