DUBUQUE (KWWL) -
The Dubuque Fighting Saints will continue February Fun this weekend with their games on both Friday and Saturday.
On Friday the Dubuque Fighting Saints will take on the Omaha Lancers at 7:15 p.m. for the Best in Show, which is presented by That's my Dog! in Dubuque. That's my Dog! specializes in dog training and during Friday night's game, the company owner, Robin MacFarlane, will have her canine companion Diva showcase an array of skills during Friday night's game.
Diva the dog will also be conducting the ceremonial puck drop with the captains of both teams, the first time this is taking place in Fighting Saints history. Diva will also be the judge of the "Best in Show" contest, where she will judge children to see which one is the "Best in Show." That will take place during the game's first intermission.
On Saturday the Dubuque Fighting Saints will compete in a Prairie Farms Cowbell Cup battle with the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders at 7:05 p.m. Saturday's game will be a BLACK OUT GAME presented by Truck Country. During the game fans are encouraged to wear black. The Fighting Saints will be wearing special black uniforms during Saturday night's game. After the game, those jerseys will be auctioned off with all proceeds benefiting the Dubuque Youth Hockey Association. Last year's BLACK OUT GAME jersey auction raised over $15,000 for youth hockey.
