The Lions started strong capitalizing on a short kickoff with a scrum center set piece off to the left where center Nic Guzman carried the ball with fury setting up a penalty in short range where Alex Galindo hammered the ball in for a try. From there they never looked back slicing in 8 more tries from the back line. Most impressive on the day was the team defense not allowing a try in the first half and fighting back a 5+ minute goal line assault. Camelback RFC fought hard and played an honorable 80 minutes punching in two tries and converting one. The final was 55-12

Try scorers were:

  • Jared Varner 3
  • Josh Bond 2
  • Alex Galindo 1
  • Pat Doyle 1
  • Angel Garcia 1
  • Logan McIntyre 1
