SFGG Moves on Comfortably
Saturday May 16, 2009 in Elite Level Rugby Rugby Super League
May 16, 2009 - San Francisco put the Dallas Harlequins to the sword in their quarter final today, winning 48-13 in front of a large home crowd to set up a semifinal date with the Denver Barbarians.
The number one Red Conference team proved too strong from the get go, racing to a 22-3 half time lead and going on with the job in the second stanza.
Dallas refused to give in but reality was they were out-matched and were always going to struggle away from home.
The Golden Gate attacking machine added another seven tries to their tally for the season in a comfortable display.
Milemoto Pulu and Kevin Erskine scored doubles on an exciting afternoon for the club.
“Dallas gave us some trouble early and disrupted our attack a little bit but we were able to manufacture some turn overs and get on top of them,” San Francisco coach Paul Keeler said.
“We are all extremely excited to be hosting a semi-final. We know Denver will be tough but we are pumped up to do well.”
