Seattle entered Week Six in a three-way tie for second place with San Francisco and Los Angeles. By the end of the weekend, the Cascades were comfortably in second by themselves, a byproduct of a Seattle win and four losses combined for the FlameThrowers and the Aviators. According to Los Angeles Coach Franklin Rho, "Seattle played great on both sides of the disc. Their offense was characteristically crisp and controlled, and the defense was very effective at stifling our rhythm and movement on offense. They were very ready for this game, and when they are fully loaded with [Danny] Karlinsky quarterbacking the offense and their stable of stud upfield cutters, they are a beast of a team." In the midst of a three-game homestand, the Cascades will host Vancouver on Saturday night before enjoying a long break. After the matchup with the Riptide, Seattle does not play again until June 14, when they will host first-place San Jose. Six days after that, Seattle will venture to the Bay Area, with the June 20th showdown against the Spiders slated for national exposure on ESPN3.
