On a warm sunny day at Cal Maritime’s rugby complex, the Marauders of Jesuit clashed with the Highlanders of Marin and opened it up in the second half to win 43-0.
Jesuit was able to jump out to a quick lead with Eightman Max Sackett finding a gap off a lineout to dot down. Fullback Mason Phillips, who had a great day with the boot, converted to make it a 7-0 game.
Led by the hard running of lock Laiatu Latu and Saint Mary’s-bound Prop Joe Marchant, the Marauders were able to get two wins to start the season at the Kick Off Tournament held in Sacramento.
