Nighthawks Preparing for Home Opener Saturday

The Wichita Falls Nighthawks are finding life as an expansion team tough so far in the Indoor Football League.

After opening their inaugural season with back-to-back road losses against playoff teams, they'll return home for their first regular-season home game Saturday night at 7 p.m. at the Kay Yeager Coliseum.

They were in the KYC Thursday night to practice for that game.
