Buffalo Beauts at Minnesota Whitecaps at 6:30 p.m. Central - Twitter Game of the Week
It’s the Battle of the Undefeated! The Beauts take their trip to Minnesota where one team will get their first loss of the season. Buffalo has only played the Whale thus far, which, to be frank, isn’t a great test of where they are. However, they also played Cornell - and lost.
Injury update: Beauts forward, Jordan Juron, will be out week-to-week with an upper body injury. pic.twitter.com/UDJNK4Mbhh— Buffalo Beauts (@BuffaloBeauts) October 25, 2018
Metropolitan Riveters at Boston Pride at 7:30 p.m. Eastern - YouTube
The Riveters have had quite the interesting schedule; thus far they’ve only played two teams. And that’s not changing this weekend. This is their second match up against the Pride. In the second weekend of the season, the Pride won, 5 - 1. The Riveters are still looking for their first win of the season as well.
