It's time once again to go around DI club play. The Pacific South and North continue to roll while other areas are close to beginning again.
It was another week of wins for co-leaders Belmont Shore and Santa Monica. Belmont Shore had the most difficult time over the weekend as they just got past OMBAC 30-25. Two penalties from Kalei Konrad put OMBAC up 6-0 before Belmont Shore responded with a try from fullback Greg Daniel. Andy Jackson would hit a penalty soon after to put Belmont Shore up 8-0. That lead was short lived as Stevie Johnson and Chris Turori had tries on either side of the half along with two Konrad penalties. All of that scoring put OMBAC up 22-8.
That's when the tied turned for Belmont Shore. First it was Jonathan Gray and then it was Cameron Reed. With ten minutes to play the difference was only four at 22-20. A brace from Keni Nasoqeqe five minutes apart, with a Konrad penalty in between, gave Belmont Shore the win.
