Harbor, Goldenwest, and Compton will be new teams added to the 2008 schedule.  The Eagles also travel to traditional power Saddleback Colleghard at worke for the second straight season.

MSJC will open at Chaffey on September 6th, followed by a road contest at Saddleback on September 13th.  The Eagles first home game comes in the Palms to Pines game against Desert on September 20th.  Other home games include; September 27th against Mesa, October 25th against San Bernardino Valley, November 8th versus L.A. Harbor and the season finale November 15th against Victor Valley.
