BCrugby3smVancouver, BC (ISN) - Three teams in the Women's Adidas Premiership will put their perfect records on the line this Saturday as the Velox Valkyries, United Rugby Club and Burnaby Lake Rugby Club attempt to hold down top spot in the standings. 

Women's Adidas Premiership - Sat. February 18th: 

Capilano RFC at Burnaby Lake Rugby Club (Burnaby Lake Sports Complex) 11:30am

Bayside Sharks at United Rugby Club (Town Centre) 11:30/1:00pm TBC

SFU Rugby at Velox Valkyries (Velox RFC) 11:30am 


Capilano at Burnaby Lake

Reigning provincial champions Burnaby Lake (2-0) currently lead the league offensively averaging 43.5 points per game. A more impressive statistic, however, is their relentless defence which has not allowed a single point against. Burnaby blanked Bayside by a score of 51-0 this past Saturday and appear to be in cruise control heading into this weekend's clash against Capilano (0-2). Burnaby's Deb Capps and Emily Young currently lead the offence, boasting three tries a piece. Capilano narrowly missed out on their first win of the season last Saturday, falling 24-22 against SFU. Capilano kicker Hilary Leith ranks 15th overall in league scoring, boasting a try and a convert through two matches. 


Bayside at United 

Tri-Cities club United (2-0) are currently in top form, averaging 37.5 ppg and just seven points against. United boasts the league's top scorers in Alicia Guerin (4 tries) and Candace Barry (2 tries, 5 conversions) as well as provincial team standout Paniz Pahlavanlu (2 tries). Bayside (1-1) are still finding their footing in the second half after an impressive Fall season where they finished as Lower Mainland runner-ups. Bayside will look to rebound from a tough 51-0 loss last week and will rely on their top scorer Paige Smith (1 try, 3 conversions) to ignite their offence. 


SFU at Velox

Boasting their share of provincial team representatives, SFU (1-1) are new to the Premiership level this season. Demi Stamatakis (2 tries, 3 conversions) currently ranks third in overall scoring and the students have already claimed their first win in a 24-22 decision over Capilano last Saturday. Island champions Velox Valkyries (2-0) currently rank third in offensive production, averaging 33.5 points per game and their flyers should be a tough test for the SFU defence.

T1. Alicia Guerin (United Rugby Club) - 20 pts (4 tries)

T1. Candace Barry (United Rugby Club) - 20 pts (2 tries, 5 conversions)
