PRP Recap: OMBAC, SFGG, & Olympic Club Win

Round three of the Pacific Rugby Premiership is in the books.

OMBAC 54-27

After three rounds OMBAC have moved into solid first place in the Pacific Rugby Premiership standings. OMBAC beat Belmont Shore 54-27 in the highly anticipated match between the two sides. Both were undefeated through two rounds and whoever won over the weekend would have a clear path for most of the rest of the season. That's now OMBAC who are hoping to follow up on their Cal Cup title with a PRP victory.

Tai Tuisamoa led the way with three tries. The player/coach has been putting in great performances so far this year as he leads by example. Michael Dillon did most of the damage with his boot. For their part Belmont Shore will be disappointed by the loss but will have the opportunity to rebound next week.

SFGG 30-22 Life West

After their disappointing loss in week one San Francisco Golden Gate have responded in a big way with a win over Santa Monica last year and now a win over Life West. With the win SFGG are now tied with Belmont Shore on points at 11 and a 2-1 record. Life West now fall to 1-2.

The match bounced around between the two teams early. Anthony Munoz opened things up for Life West before Fatai Villa struck back for SFGG. Fancy Namualaulu responded to restore Life West's advantage. Stalwart Opeti Okusi equalized to make it 12-12. Then it was the kickers turn with Guillaume Cazenave and Colby Stevens trading efforts. The difference in the end being SFGG seeing Pila Huihui scoring over close to the end.

Olympic Club 17-7 Santa Monica

Unfortunately for both Olympic Club and Santa Monica they have had a lot of bottom of the table meetings the last few years. Typically they have gone to Olympic Club and that was the case once again with Olympic Club coming up with a victory. Josh Tucker gave Olympic Club an early lead but then Shawn Lee gave Santa Monica the edge with a converted try. But that was all Santa Monica would get as Olympic Club scored twice, once through Mark Bowers and once through Drew Gaffney.
