This year, the Raptors traveled to New York to play and were soundly defeated. Tim Ryland galloped in for three tries while Shawn Rafferty claimed two. Sean Lugano’s brother, Mike, also scored a try.
Glendale answered with two tries from Mike Pettes and single touchdowns from John McGuire and Florence.
