The Crimsons come off of their bye week from last week well rested and ready to take on the Ballard Bruins on Sept.16 at Ballard at 7:00. This game is expected to be a good one as the Crimsons come in with a record of 3-0 and the Bruins boast a 3-1 record, with the lone loss coming to the Male Bulldogs. Look for this game to be kept on the ground as both teams are led by strong rushing attacks.
