The Glendale Raptors clawed the Denver Barbarians 47-17 in a rare West league game Saturday night.

Denver led early with a penalty, 3-0, but Josh Sutcliffe's try quickly gave Glendale the advantage. Justin Pauga's try (both were converted by Mike Graham) made it 14-3 halftime.

Max Statler's try made it 21-3 in the second half before Denver finally got over the tryline. But tries from Ratu Rinakama, Zach Fenoglio, Phil White, and Trevor Hansen put the game away for Glendale. Mike Graham converted six of the seven tries, as the Raptors move to 2-0.
