Danville defeated De La Salle for the second week in a row, this time in the NorCal Premier semifinals, 35-12. It was close into the second half, with Danville leading 14-12 with 25 minutes left. But the Oaks backline started to find some space and pull away late.
Behind a very strong showing by their back row, Gonzaga defeated the Charlotte Cardinals 22-10 to win the Gonzaga Classic.
While pool play was shortened somewhat on Saturday due to lightning, the excellent weather on Sunday made for an excellent day of rugby throughout the 12-team boys premier tournament.
Not all of the games scheduled for Day One at the Gonzaga Tournament were played as the DC area was hit with torrential rain and thunder and lightning late in the afternoon.
But a large chunk of the Premier pool games were indeed played and organizers garnered sufficient information from those games to work up a good Sunday schedule.
