Seattle Saracens Secure Promotion To BC Premier League


Press Release

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Vancouver, Canada, the Seattle Saracens took to the pitch against Meraloma Rugby Club.  This division 1 final would be the decider of which club would be promoted to the BCRU premiership.

Arriving calm and focused, Seattle was ready to go for the cup.  A solid start showed that the Saracens were the better squad.  Meraloma capitalized on errors, and Seattle found themselves in a street fight for the win.  A back and forth battle for the win brought Meraloma within reach of the win.  A 6 point deficit with 20 minutes to go was proving to be a difficult task to overcome.  Through a yellow card and Meraloma's relentless attack the Seattle Saracens refused to say die.  With 5 minutes left, Seattle was able push for a try and convert for the 1 point lead.  The seemingly endless final 5 minutes tested Seattle's resolve.  At the final whistle, Seattle was proclaimed BC Rugby Union champions.

This win is a culmination of over a decade of a feisty Seattle squad that works for every inch towards the championship.  This is only the beginning of Seattle's march towards their goal of a premiership championship.
