USA Club Recap reports..."SFGG blanked Vacaville 55-0 for its fourth victory of the season and second shutout in as many weeks. “Big keys were the defensive speed that created turnovers and the transition into attack and ball movement,” head coach Neil Foote said. “Vacaville had some handy players and showed great willingness to attack but the SFGG had speed across the field. The attack was off the back of some solid set piece work and we saw some great ball movement from sideline to sideline, and fantastic tries from deep in our own territory.”
Remarking on the joy he has seen in his players, Foote said, “The lads look like they are thoroughly enjoying playing back in the community and more connected to the local club competition coaches are doing a great job. We got to celebrate an enjoyable day honoring our military and also saw our DIII side with an impressive victory over Fresno (60-20).”"
