On the soccer pitch, the Peacock Tornadoes will be hosting the Weyburn Eagles in the Moose Jaw High School Soccer League.

With the dispute between the Saskatchewan High School Athletic Association and Saskatchewan Soccer Association settled on Wednesday, games are able to go ahead as normal for the local soccer league.

The Peacock boys are coming off a 4-3 win over Central in their season opener, while the Peacock girls lost 3-0 to Vanier in their opening game last Saturday.

The girls game goes at Sunningdale Field, while the boys game will take place at Smith Field. Both games go at 4:30 p.m.

Thursday night is opening night in the Moose Jaw High School Senior Volleyball League.

The Peacock Toilers will welcome in the Briercrest Christian Academy Cougars for a boys game at 6:20 p.m. and a girls game at 8 p.m.

The games go at the same time over at Cornerstone Christian School where the Falcons will host the Central Cyclones in a doubleheader.

The lone out-of-town game will see the Vanier Vikings travel to Avonlea to take on the Eagles at 7 p.m.
