SLIDESHOW: Major League Ulltimate game sees Rainmakers defeat Stags 18-12

In the second game of what is called Major League Ultimate played at the Southwest Athletic Complex the Seattle Rainmakers faced off against the Portland Stags Saturday night, April 27.

The game is new and a blend of team disc throwing, catching, and scoring. The object of the game is to score points by passing the disc to a player in the opponent's end zone, much like football. Players can't run with the disc, and must keep a pivot while holding it.

In Saturday's game, Cutter Reid Koss didn’t waste any time getting the Rainmakers on the board scoring a mere twenty seconds into the game on Saturday against the Portland Stags in front of a smaller crowd than last week.

But the fans were fervent and loud.

There were even tailgaters’ barbequing burgers and dogs in the upper parking lot before the game. Koss and crew would go on to defeat the Stag 18-12.

Seattle’s fast paced offense and their swift slashing defense is the reason the Rainmakers are in first place in the MLU Western Conference.

Next weekend Seattle travels down the coast to face their closest rival in the young season in the San Francisco Dogfish. The Dogfish, like the Rainmakers, are undefeated but trail Seattle in points scored.
