Grunion eaten up by Los Angeles

The Santa Barbara Grunion may not be a playoff team this season, but that didn’t stop the local rugby club from attracting a host of fans to its second-to-last home game at Elings Park on Saturday.

The more experienced and superior-skilled L.A. Rugby Club ended up routing Santa Barbara 50-13, although much of the entertained crowd was none-the-wiser as there was no scoreboard.

The Santa Barbara Grunion fell to Los Angeles on Saturday at Elings Park.

Omar Gonzalez converted three tries for L.A., which earned a much-needed bonus point in the season standings for scoring four tries in the first half.

The Grunions host their final home game of the season on April 24 against Mission Beach.
