Jesuit of Sacramento defeated St. John Bosco 32-24 to win the All-California Single-School title Saturday.
This championship is a revitalization of a fixure that was held for some years, but abandoned. Rugby NorCal and the Southern California Interscholastic Rugby Federation brought it back this year. De La Salle defeated St. Augustine to take 3rd.
St. John Bosco upset St. Augustine to take the SCIRF title over the weekend, in a win that was not without controversy.
Bosco did well to stifle an impressive St. Augustine attack, and held the Saints to just 11 points.
The weekend of games gets busier and busier.
Still unbeaten in the SCIRF, St. Augustine has emerged as a powerhouse single-school program.
One of the players leading the way is Mike Cross, and he is our Player Of The Month for January, 2019.
(Editor's note, yes, it's not been January for two weeks, sorry, we're late with this one but will be more prompt in the future.)
The St. Augustine Saints hosted Torrey Pines in a huge SCIRF match this weekend, and it was a tight one, with the Saints holding off TP 19-16.
The SCIRF goes on as rivals Cathedral and Torrey Pines, two teams less than a mile apart, renewed their rivalry last Saturday.
Cathedral, off to a blistering start, jumped to a quick 12-0 lead thanks to two tries by Miles McCormick. Chris Buonarati converted one of the tries from a difficult angle.
St Augustine came back to pull off a huge victory over St. John Bosco and emerge as the team to beat in the Southern California IRF league.
Due to participation in the California State football playoffs, San Diego’s Cathedral Catholic had to delay its start in the inaugural season of the Southern California Interscholastic Rugby Federation, but now Cathedral is ready to go.
The Southern California Interscholastic Rugby Federation is about to end its Christmas/New Year break and get back at it, and right now it seems to be a St. Augustine and St. John Bosco on a collision.
St. Augustine 70-0 Fallbrook
San Clemente 54-10 Mira Costa
Torrey Pines 19-16 La Costa Canyon
Saint Augustine defeated the Mira Costa Mustangs in San Diego this past weekend in Round 2 of the new SCIRF league.
The new independent SCIRF got underway this past weekend in boys HS action.
St Augustine played Fallbrook on Saturday. It was a physical affair between the two squads. The Saints worked hard to keep an advantage in territory and wanted to play in the Fallbrook side of the field. The Saints did a pretty good job of forcing Fallbrook to play in their side of the field.
Southern California kicks off its high school season this weekend with some key early matchups, not least of which will be Torrey Pines hosting La Costa Canyon.
these two teams know each other very well and have formed an excellent rivalry, albeit one in which La Costa has had a slight upper hand in recent years.
