SFGG at Sacramento 7s. Betty Lumoli photo

San Francisco Golden Gate beat crosstown rival Olympic Club 19-12 to win the second NorCal 7s qualifier Saturday in Sacramento, Calif. SFGG rebounded from an early loss to San Jose in their first game of the day to win four straight and claim the title.

The final was a rematch of the third-place decider from the series opener in San Francisco, and Saturday's third-place game, which East Palo Alto won 24-7 over San Jose, was a rematch of the San Francisco final. The results leave SFGG and East Palo Alto tied atop the NorCal series standings with one tournament left to play. Olympic Club and San Jose are tied for second, both still with a shot of taking home the title. 

While Santa Rosa and the Sacramento Capitals are not mathematically eliminated from contention, they're up against it. They'd have to win the final tournament, have SFGG and EPA finish 9th and 10th and San Jose and O-Club finish 7th and 8th. With four teams still squarely in the hunt, the July 26th finale in Palo Alto, Calif. should be hotly contested.
