Costa Ruggers Travel to Las Vegas for International 7s!

The Mira Costa Rugby team travelled to Las Vegas for the International 7s tournament. The Mustangs took 2 boys teams as well as, for the first time, a girls side as well.

The Green side opened with Rock Rugby from Austin, TX. Austin Tiradeau & Slade Gor­don scored but unfortunately the defense faltered as Green dropped the first match 10-17. The next match was against the Las Vegas Blackhawks. The Vegas side had no answer for Aiden Martinez as Costa won 21-7. The final match of the day came against the British Columbia Elite. Jordan Corral scored his first ever Try & Evan Anderson scored as well but the Canadi­ans were too much for Costa 10-26.

The Gold side opened play against a strong team in Kahu from San Diego. Sean Cascad­den took a great pass from Ben Wilberding to open the scoring. Christian Hunter had a 42 me­ter score and another from point blank but the San Diego managed to edge Costa 19-21. Match 2 was against Broken Arrow, OK. Sean Cascadden had 2 40 meter Trys while Luke Mohr add­ed another but the Oklahomans managed to tie the match 17 all. The last match of the day was against Shawnigan from British Columbia. Sean and Tomy Undurraga mustered 12 points but it wasn’t enough as the Mustangs fell 12-19.

The Ladies meanwhile had a very difficult day as they played in an extremely competitive and strong pool. Their first match was against East High, Denver, CO. Despite a 28 meter score from Camille Boll the ladies lost 5-28. The next match was against the Foothill Lions of Alberta, Canada. The Lions were spectacular as they hammered our girls 0-64.  The last match was against the Carrol Chargers of Indiana. The girls fought hard but nevertheless dropped the match 10-29.

Despite all three teams struggling on the day, they fought hard and had moments of stellar rugby.

The next day will be better!
