In a rugby match against CenCal Rugby on April 30, 2023, Granite Bay front-rower Tyson Wasser sustained a blood clot in his neck that quickly turned into a stroke, and while Wasser is thankfully alive, he has a long road ahead of him.

The Premier HS Boys Final in Northern California unleashed a high level of rugby and competitiveness as Granite Bay held off Danville to take top honors.

These two teams had played to a 26-26 tie earlier in the season so it's no surprise that this game was close as well.

Playoffs and major games in Boys HS rugby this weekend so far.

Northern California Playoffs 

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.

Granite Bay and Danville are both unbeaten in Northern California league play and will be the top two going into the playoffs.

The Marin Highlanders pulled off a big result over the weekend, holding well-regarded single-school team De La Salle to a 10-10 tie.

Needless to say, although we're still saying it, it was a defensive battle.

And yes, certainly, DLS has some injuries and unavailabilities, but they expected to beat Marin ... which may have been the issue all along.
