2/16/2013-- The Saint Mary's Men's Rugby team took on Sacramento State, one of their long standing rivals, this weekend.
This league match up has always proved to be a very physical game. The offense for the Gael's looked great with the return of Garrett Brewer, a Rio Americano alumni, who made an immediate impact to the overall team play. Michael Haley scored twice along with teammate Tim Maupin. Also finding the try zone on Saturday, was Kelly Harris, Luke Napier and freshmen Dylan Audsley. Dylan converted five of the Gael's 7 first half tries bring the score to 45-0, in favor of the Gaels, at halftime. Saint Mary's kept the tempo fast in the second half as they added another 38 points to end the game 83-0.
The Gaels B side also looked sharp and physical as they finished the day with a 85-12 victory over the Hornets of Sacramento State. The Gaels now look ahead to a match up with UC Santa Barbara on Saturday February 23rd at 1:00pm at Pat Vincent Field on the campus of SMC.
