2016 USAFL Season Opener vs Portland Steelheads

One down and many more to go!
Congratulations Grizzlies on a hard fought victory with a team full of fresh new faces making a bid for Best & Fairest. Thanks to the Steelheads for making the trip and demonstrating what true rivalries are all about.

Heroes like Braiden "Juddy" Judd, Lachlan "Lachy" Ainley, Sam "Sammy" Jenkins and the usual suspects gave huge efforts to secure a Grizzlies win on a cool June afternoon. However, it took two outstanding veteran guns to really heat things up. Alex "Blalex" Jessup and Brian "Briaaaan" Flaherty were the cream of the crop this day displaying dominating defense and a penetrating pace of play! 

Something new this year for Seattle and incredibly appreciated is the support coming from the sidelines! Between the number of friends, family and players Seattle Grizzlies seem to field a small army equipped with all the pride, cheers and mimosas a sports fan could ever want. 

Now, it's on to the next one.
Go Grizz!!
