GRR: Los Alamitos
Los Alamitos continues to make waves in Southern California and could well be on its way to a title in the Southern California Youth Rugby Boys Varsity White Division.
Los Al has doubled its numbers from last year, and that's allowed them to field a 2nd side, even with a large number of underclassmen in the varsity squad.
The playoffs are set for Southern California's Varsity Red and Varsity White divisions.
In Varsity Red, St. John Bosco and Mira Costa were already settled for the playoffs, in that order, out of LA.
Los Alamitos took down undefeated Servite in Southern California action over the weekend.
Senior inside center Dylan Ramirez scored four tries while tries were also scored by freshman wing Xzavier Nadeau-Perez, outside center Andrew Andrade, No. 8 Ken Sale, and flyhalf Gustavo Hernandez.
Senior Simon Gerard converted six of those tries, and Elijah Tuialii converted one.
San Pasqual defeated Calrsbad in a notable early-season meeting in SoCal's Varsity White division.
Carlsbad had come into the game 1-0 in league play while San Pasqual was 1-0-1 after a somewhat surprising tie with Mira Mesa before the Christmas break.
This time around, San Pasqual put in a better performance and came away 34-17 winners.
