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 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.
Ten single-school high school rugby teams from Southern California have formed their own association.
The teams are all working toward getting official sanction from the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF), and at the same time are looking for a more regular challenging games during league play. This move appears to be a separation from the Rugby SoCal oversight.
It's a championship weekend around Boys High School Rugby. Here's a look at some of the action going on:
Tennessee kicks off its playoffs. See more here. The playoss will last two weeks.
The Southern California Varsity Red Divison has named its all-conference team.
