St Augustine Takes Down Mira Costa In SoCal

Saint Augustine defeated the Mira Costa Mustangs in San Diego this past weekend in Round 2 of the new SCIRF league.

In a game that showed a fairly big difference in size between the teams, the small Mustang forwards weathered the Saints' interior game early on and the teams changed ends 19-5. But the much larger Saints forwards started to pull away in the second half, repeatedly pounding the Mira Costa line. The result was a 57-5 St. Augustine win.

The Saints came out firing and scored two tries through Jake Armenta, and then one from Mike Colucci. Mira Costa responded with a nifty play off a scrum - fullback Giuseppe Meola raced onto a ball, and then used wing John Darcy as a decoy as he dummied and went in to touch down.

The second half saw the Saints continue the pressure and got tries from Walter Pongia, two Mike Cross, while Aidan Konja and Max Simon added tries late for the Saints. Jake Armenta scored a third try  and the final score was 57-5 to the Saints. The Saints will take on LCC next Saturday in a rematch of the top two teams in San Diego from last season.
