The 7s season is well underway in Southern California with the OMBAC 7s taking place over the weekend. The tournament was taken by Belmont Shore and featured several of the top teams in the region along with visiting Glendale to give it a PRP feel to it with OMBAC, Belmont Shore, and Santa Monica all also played. Belmont Shore beat Glendale 28-7 in the final.

The tournament was split into three pools. The OC Ravens took the first pool thanks to a narrow win over hosts OMBAC and then a big win over Kern. However, they weren't the overall seed after pool play. That went to Santa Monica who got big wins over Oceanside and Pasadena. Belmont Shore topped their pool but with more narrow wins over the SD Tunas and Glendale they were the third seed.
