The Williams Lake Sabercats played its home opener Saturday against the Prince George Marauders in week three of the Prince George Minor Football League.

The first-year Sabercats — an atom division team of 15 players aged seven to nine — stormed out of the starting blocks in the first half at the Ottoman Drive rugby fields to go up 13-8 after a 60-yard jaunt for a touchdown from Sabercats running back Noe Jelks and a first-and-goal notch from Cole Aumond.

Prince George, however, used its experience to regain a 16-13 lead heading into the second half where they continued to roll, ending the contest with a 34-13 victory.
