Danville defeated Peninsula Green 38-10 in the opening game. Alex MacDonald, and Jason Severance combined nicely to set up Christian Bucklin for the opening try, and flyhalf Ethan Gruber added a second off a scrum. Pen Green replied with a try from Luke Rafaelli, but Severance replied to make it 19-5.

Off turnover ball, MacDonald spun it quickly to Elijah Tafao, who set up Carlos Gomez for the try and a halftime lead of 24-5.

Gomez added a second right after the break and then MacDonald put Bucklin away for his second. Pen Green's Alex Lopeti set up his team's second try, but Danville won convincingly.

Center Parkway edged CK McClatchy 21-19 with a try at the end of the game.

 

Danville then defeated a snappy CK McClatchy 21-12. McClatchy, in fact, moved the ball nicely and took an early 5-0 lead. But tries from Severance and Gomez, with MacDonald again in the middle of the action, put Danville up 14-5 at the break. Inoke Waqavesi scored a nice try for CK, tapping quickly and sidestepping three players to make it 14-12. But Severance capped the game with a try.

Center Parkway defeated Pen Green to set up a meeting of two 2-0 teams.

In this game, Center Parkway showed the speed and skill that they later showcased at the NAI 7s in finishing 3rd, and beat Danville 40-5. However, with both teams guaranteed a spot in the final, the Oaks rested some players.

In the championship match, then, Danville went up after Hunter Phillips set up Severance. Then MacDonald sidestepped his way to making it 14-7. But Center Parkway speedster Jalen Lampley raced in to make it 14-7 at halftime.

From the restart, Gomez broke through, was caught by Lampley, but high, and as a result Danville got a penalty try and a 21-7 lead. Viliami Hopoi powered through and showed some stepping as well to score for Center Parkway. But Severance replied to keep Danville ahead by two scored.

With time winding down, Lampley tapped quickly, and then broke through again to set up another. But the final conversion was missed, and Danville held on 28-26.

CK McClatchy beat Pen Green for 3rd.
