By From page B2 | July 31, 2014

The Davis Rugby Club wrapped up the summer Rugby 7’s series Sunday in Dixon.
The varsity team finished third with a 2-1-1 record. Davis capped off the day with a 20-5 victory over Elk Grove in the Boys Varsity Silver third-place game. Davis was led by scoring tries from Marvin Grant, Michal Goodison, Jake Teafatiller and Ben Gore, who recorded his first try of the summer 7’s tournaments as the whistle was blown to end the game.
Throughout the tournament, the varsity also received outstanding play from Evan Sierras, runs and tackles from Anthony Pedroia, defense from Yared Haile and runs by Matt Meyers.
The junior varsity started the tournament off well with a 26-24 victory over Mother Lode, but ran into some tough teams the rest of the way and finished 1-3 for the tournament.
On the day, the JV were led by Eben Kohn with two tries, and Reese Peterson and Ian Donald with one try each. The JV team benefited from the excellent play of Jesse Keenan, Aavineet Johal, Chase Jones and Connor Layman.
