Harlequins fire all their cannons for the East-meets-West home opener.

On a hot day, and a hard field, the Harlequins began their fall campaign against the Minnesota Banshees. Expectations for the season are high after an undefeated spring season. To increase the pressure on the team, the match was the first of three to be televised by Time Warner Cable Sports 32.

The Harlequins defeated the Banshees 77-14 in a one-sided affair at Naga-Waukee Park in Delafield, WI.

In B-match action, the Banshees took their revenge with a confident win over the home side.
