GRR: Northern California
De La Salle opened their season in Northern California with a victory over Motherlode.
Played in the rain at Saint Mary's College, the game was rife with early-season mistakes, but also played with plenty of effort.
There’s that old saying, be careful what you wish for, but what about the opposite?
Embrace what you dread.
In an absolute classic De La Salle edged by Granite Bay to win the Northern California Premier final.
Ranked #2 among school teams, De La Salle beat the #1-ranked HS club 24-22, scoring in the final moments to secure the regional championships. This adds to De La Salle's all-California school title that they won over Torrey Pines in March.
It was a very tough week for Jesuit of Sacramento and their rugby team, and the week ended with less celebration than perhaps they needed, but that's life—sometimes you have tog out and do the thing when the circumstances are poor.
