JACKSONVILLE – The Jacksonville Sharks face the Columbus Lions Saturday night at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena at 7 p.m. This is the Sharks fourth home game of the season, and the team is on a five-game win streak after defeating their in-state rival, Orlando Predators for the second time this season. The Lions are currently 2-4 and are coming off a home game loss last week against the 5-2 Carolina Cobras. The last time the Sharks were up against the Lions was in mid-April, and the Sharks came out on top for our first win of the season.
