Fleetwood football excited for Berks League opener

Published On: Sep 18 2013 05:31:44 PM CDT

The Tigers played a tough non-league schedule pretty well. They hope to use that experience in the Berks opener on Friday in Hamburg.

FLEETWOOD -

The Fleetwood Tigers (1-2) played a challenging non-league schedule. But the team feels like those tests got it ready for the grind of Berks County play.

The Tigers have played teams like Conrad Weiser and Donegal, games where Fleetwood was competitive in.

That has given James Martinez's team optimism that it can hang with anyone in Berks County.

The Tigers will have their first chance to prove that on Friday night when they visit Hamburg in their Berks II opener.
