Led by evergreen scrumhalf Mose Timoteo and with collegians Danny Barrett, Tim Maupin and Michael Haley impressing all day, SFGG swept the day to win the 1st of three Northern California qualifiers to the Pacific Coast club 7s championships.
SFGG cruised through their pool, which included Santa Rosa, Sacramento Lions, and the San Jose Seahawks.
"The guys did a really good job of playing to the pattern and Mose and Mile were great leaders," said Head Coach Jone Naqica. "The college guys were great and started the last three games, and we had some new guys come off the bench who did really well."
In the other pool, the East Palo Alto Bulldogs won the pool at 3-0, with Olympic Club coming second at 2-1. SFGG downed O-Club in the semis while Santa Rosa, 2-1 in pool play, defeated EPA. Then SFGG torched Santa Rosa in the final.
Olympic Club got some revenge against the Bulldogs, beating them for third.
"We were OK on the whole," said Olympic Club 7s Coach Matt Sherman. "We were missing a few guys with injury, but we got better as the day went on."
This series will decide what four teams will take on four from the Pacific Northwest in Seattle July 20. At stake on that date will be two seeds to the national championships.
