The midget AAA Cardinals will take on the seldom-seen Spruce Grove White Sox tonight at Legion Memorial Park. First pitch goes at 7 p.m.
On the season to date the two teams have only met once, with the White Sox drubbing the Cardinals 12-4 on June 5. Tonight’s game also marks the last time the two teams will play each other during the regular season.
In the standings, the White Sox sit in third place at 16-7, five games back of the first place Okotoks Black. St. Albert occupies fifth place at 11-12 and are 10 games back of first.
The St. Albert men’s and women’s soccer leagues will be putting their best players on the field for the league’s respective all-star games Friday night in St. Albert.
For the men, the best of the St. Albert Men’s Soccer League (SAMSL) will be divided into Team White and Team Blue. Both teams will take the soccer pitch at Riel field #2. Game time is 7 p.m.
In the St. Albert Women’s Soccer League (SAWSL), the best of the league will also meet up in Riel for their all-star game. That game also goes at 7 p.m.

The two teams have met only once so far this season in which the Druids squeaked out a 9-6 win over St. Albert on May 12.

The second division game goes at 2:15 p.m. also at Leading Edge fields.
