Though they haven't faced much competition this season, the Fallbrook High School girls' varsity rugby team finished the fall-winter season undefeated in four contests and will play in the Southern California championship match Saturday, Feb. 22.

The Warriors earned their spot in the championship game by defeating visiting Torrey Pines High School 111-0 Friday, Feb. 14, at Fallbrook.

Senior Abbey Savin led the Warriors with five tries on the day and one conversion kick, and sophomore Tiahna Padilla added four more tries for the Warriors who led 53-0 at halftime.

Sophomore Jordan Duncan added three tries, Analiese Dalton scored two and Liberty Benitez, Julia Tippin, Shelby Tippin and Brianna Beath each scored once for the Warriors.

"She ran well with the ball, strong and fast running into space," head coach Craig Pinnell said of Beath who was named Rugby Girl for the match.

Julia Tippin converted two kicks, her sister Shelby Tippin converted four, Grace Cockroft and Beath both converted one each.

Benitez added a drop goal to her scoring tally.

The Warriors did not allow either Rancho Bernardo or Torrey Pines to score against them in all four of the regular season matches.

Fallbrook Girls Rugby Club is accepting signups and registration for the upcoming club season which kicks off at the end of the month. For more information, email [email protected]
