Day 2- Sunday
10:00 a.m.- The team rests up from a travel day yesterday and prepares to play three games in three days. A breakfast at the hotel serves as the pregame meal before it's off to Scarborough to play the first exhibition game.

1:00 p.m.- UND arrives at Malvern Community Center to play a team of local players dubbed the "Dream Team". After some finagling to get the entire team at the gym and in similar-looking uniforms (kind of), we're off.

2:10 p.m.- The game tips and UND races out to a 10-0 lead right away. Ten UND players dress for the game with several sitting out due to injury (Katie Klapprodt, Madison Kramer, Kelsey Knox, Emily Evers, Katie Houdek). Read the full game recap here. UND wins 72-64 with four North Dakota players in double figures.

5:30 p.m.- Back to the hotel and ready to head to Rogers Centre to catch some Canadian League Football. The Toronto Argonauts (the reigning Grey Cup Champions) host the Edmonton Eskimos. Edmonton defensive back Donovan Alexander played for UND in the mid-2000s.

7:00 p.m.- The CFL game kicks-off and there's plenty of offense (or offence). Passing yards get racked-up to the tune of 969 combined and 7 touchdowns as Toronto wins a 36-33 shootout.

9:30 p.m.- Low-key dinner before heading back to rest for game two tomorrow. With it being a night game, the team will head out on a ferry ride and do some brief shopping/touring before playing at Ryerson University at 7:00 p.m. Eastern.
