After Week 1 was postponed, the West Hills Falcons are eager to start the 2017 season with their home opener on Saturday, taking on Los Medanos College at 7:00 p.m.
The LMC Mustangs (1-0) are coming off a 35-20 season-opening victory over Reedley College.
The Falcons are ranked No. 24 in the state JC Athletic Bureau Poll of California Community College Coaches.
Former Falcon Justin Berna, entering his first season as Director of Sport Operations/Head Football Coach, says the players and coaches are looking forward to opening the season in front of the home crowd.
"We're excited to finally play," Berna said.
"This is a great first test to see how we measure up against a good opponent. Los Medanos has one game under its belt. They have a solid program with veteran players who know their system. It's a good opportunity for us to evaluate our players. Our three goals are to win the game, win the turnover battle, and limit our penalties. It's been a long summer, so we are anxious to line up on Saturday night."
