Seattle Get Surprise Win, ARP & MRP Recap

The Seattle Saracens scored a key victory as they kicked off their BC Premier League campaign last weekend. The team faced a strong opponent in the UBCOB Ravens but still came away with the 33-22 victory. The Ravens have been one of the best teams in the BC Premier League the last few seasons so to be able to score a key win like that was good for the Saracens. It gets equally as tough this weekend as they face perennially power UBC. Seattle, along with Vancouver Rowing Club, were the only two teams to take maximum points in week one. Not all teams have started.

One of the upshots for the Saracens over the last couple of weeks was being able to play at Starfire Stadium. That's also the home of the Seattle Seawolves. The Saracens have been playing in front of good crowds in a solid game day environment.
