SFGG steamrolled OMBAC in PRP action Saturday, behind their biggest steamroller, prop Paula Fukafuka.
The front-rower scored two tries in the first half, as did center Mile Pulu, as SFGG ran their record to 6-2.
With Tom Rooke and Opeti Okusi adding tries, and Volney Rouse kicking four conversions, Golden Gate led 38-0 at halftime, and a Ricky Reynolds try right after the break extended the lead to 43-0.
OMBAC girded their loins and scored two tries from Chris Clever - who has been in solid form all season - and scrumhalf Jamie Purcell.
But SFGG held on 52-15, with Peter Moala for SFGG and Marcus Satavu for OMBAC finishing out the scoring.
OMBAC were without Zach Pangelinan, the league's leading scorer, as he is with Tiger Rugby at the Melrose 7s. OMBAC did not kick any points Saturday.
The loss dealt a blow to OMBAC's championship hopes, as they dropped to 4-3-1. They are not out of it, but need to run the table to have a shot.
Tries: Fukafuka 2, Pulu 2, Okusi, Rooke, Reynolds, Moala
