A Burnaby Lake ball carrier tries to escape the grasp of a United tackler in the first half of their BC Rugby Union women’s premier division match, Saturday at Hume Park. United won the match 33-29 to move into a tie atop the standings with the Velox Valkyries and five points ahead of the Lakers. United will have a chance to gain sole possession of first place when they play the Valkyries on Saturday at Banting Middle School in Coquitlam.
