Jesuit Rugby played host to Elsie Allen in another early season battle for both teams. The game was a scrappy affair with neither team able to really gain control for long stretches.
Eightman Max Sackett, who recently committed to West Point, was able to find an opening and score in the sixth minute. Fullback Mason Phillips converted. A series of mistakes allowed the Lobos to get right back into the game with a well earned try twelve minutes in. Wing James Bayard had a nice on a set move to score. Sackett scored again at the 25-minute mark, with Flyhalf Max Schumacher had a nice run to add to the tally.
Elsie Allen was not done and a defensive lapse by Jesuit allowed the Lobo scrumhalf to dance through several defenders to score right at the half.
Halftime score – Jesuit 22 Elsie Allen 12

Wing David Starnes, who was an attacking threat all day, scored on a nice passage of play. Junior Lock Laiatu Latu ended the day with another punishing run to score. Phillips converted to take Jesuit to 41 points. Elsie Allen continued to pound away with pick and jams when they got close to the Jesuit line. They were able to get one more try to end the day.
Final score – Jesuit 41 Elsie Allen 17
