10/27/2012- Saturday the Saint Mary's Men's team took on a tough Santa Clara Broncos team in a fall scrimmage in Moraga, CA for their fall home opener. It was a competitive game with lots of action from start to finish with the Broncos winning with a final score of 10-16.
The Gaels scored first off the opening face-off to take an early lead and spark the home crowd at the Saint Mary's turf field. The Broncos responded by putting up 3 unanswered points on the board. With a 5-7 score at halftime, the Gaels launched into the third quarter to score first and bring the score to 6-7.
Again, the potent Bronco offense responded. By the end of the third quarter the score was 8-10. The Gaels offense was able to add two more goals in the fourth quarter while the Broncos added 6 more before the end of the game for a final score of 10-16.
In their last meeting, the Gaels put up a good fight but fell to the Broncos 5-3. The Gaels return to the turf for practice this week, and look forward to their upcoming appearance in the DVC tournament in Concord, CA on December 1st.
