Seattle Stay on Top of League with Win in Houston: Full Match Video & Highlights
Seattle 20 - Houston 7
The Seawolves defence is making a name for itself, fans and media are warming up to the #SeaWall tag, this week's result will only enhance the popularity. The 7 points scored by Houston is the lowest result for a home team this season.
Seattle were ahead 6-0 on two penalties before winger Peter Tiberio ran a perfectly timed pattern off #10 Will Holder for the try. Seattle went ahead 20-0 after Phil Mack, always the opportunist, picked up a spilled ball inside the Houston 22 and weaved his way into the try zone. Houston got one back after a yellow card to Seattle forward Vili Toluta'u put Seattle down to 14 men.
Phil Mack and Ray Barkwill are gone now from the Seattle camp as they get called up to the Canada side. How will Seattle perform over the next two games without their coach and key playmaker? It's wait and see as they travel to Austin next weekend and then to Glendale before enjoying a bye in Week 10. The top 4 teams enter the playoffs after that.
