Seattle Saracens Inch Closer To Playoffs

The Seattle Saracens are inching closer to a playoff spot in the BC Premier League. The Saracens helped their cause with a 45-32 home win over the University of Victoria. There is a logjam of teams around the Saracens in the standings. Three teams--Capilano, James Bay, and UVic--are tied with the Saracens with 12 points but Seattle have a game in hand on each of them and two on UVic. Seattle will play James Bay next week at home in a big match. If they win that one the playoffs look likely.

If results go their way Seattle could also overtake the UBCOB Ravens who have 13 points. After taking on James Bay, Seattle will play bottom side Vancouver Rowing Club at Brockton Oval before playing the Ravens. The Castaway Wanderers and Burnaby Lake are one and two in the BC Premier League standings with UBC third. Seattle may be able to catch UBC but would need strong results and for UBC to slip up.

The Saracens women are in firm second place in the women's standings. With Baylee Annis, Naima Reddick, and Kristine Sommer all missing to Eagles duty the Saracens lost to third place Cowichan 66-47 on Saturday. The Saracens will try to reverse that result as they play Cowichan next weekend. They then close out the season against Capilano, first place Westshore, and Burnaby Lake.
