DI Recap: OMBAC, Huns Earn Big Wins

Pacific South

OMBAC have a narrow one point lead over the Old Aztecs at the top of the Pacific South standings albeit with a game in hand. OMBAC did that with a 32-27 win over Los Angeles. The first half was tight with some minor ball handling errors from OMBAC and stout defense by LA keeping things close. OMBAC started rolling in the second half and finished the day with tries from Micah Schrimpf (two), Dustin Bates, and Jeremy Ramirez. Scrumhalf Josh Sowa had four tries for LA, nearing winning the match. OMBAC will face Belmont Shore next week while LA face the Old Aztecs.

In a surprise result, Downtown beat Belmont Shore 45-26. Seven different players scored for Downtown. The loss will likely keep Belmont Shore from the playoffs. Fellow lower-table side Pasadena also picked up a win. They beat Santa Monica 41-21. Bryan Akioka add a hat-trick for Pasadena.

Pacific North

The match with the most impact in the Pacific North over the weekend was Santa Rosa against the EPA Razorbacks. The two teams drew 17-17. We'll send you over to Brad Zigler's report for more details. The draw almost turned into an opportunity for the Razorbacks as Life West survived a 14-10 scare against the Sacramento Lions. That keeps them with an unblemished record in the south.

In the north Santa Rosa are first with SFGG behind them in second place. SFGG beat the San Jose Seahawks 22-19. That win, coupled with the Lions loss, keeps them in second place. The last match saw the Sacramento Blackhawks over Fresno 40-19. Three weeks remain in the season.
