SMC Rugby Earns Big Win Over Life University

With perennial power Life University in town for a matchup of two of the nation's top collegiate rugby programs, Saint Mary's fans were treated to an epic defensive battle that in the end was decided by a late penalty kick as the host Gaels defeated Life University, 31-29, at Saint Mary's Stadium.

Antoine de la Fontaine, Junior Waqavesi, Lleyton Delzell, and Josh Allan were each credited with a try for Saint Mary's. Karl Keane converted each extra point and made the final penalty kick to put the Gaels on top.

Action returns to Saint Mary's Stadium on Dec. 4 when Life West pays a visit to Moraga. A-Side play begins at 1 p.m. with the B-Side match to follow.
