A physical La Costa Canyon Varsity Rugby team took its first loss of the season, 41-12, Feb. 2 at the hands of a more experienced, tactical Torrey Pines Varsity Club. Torrey Pines trailed for the first time all season, after LCC Flanker Jake Galloway scored over the middle five minutes into the match (kick failed). But, Torrey Pines Head Coach Matty Sandoval patiently used the skills of Senior Fly Half Alec Mills who connected on four consecutive penalty kicks over the next 20 minutes to put Torrey Pines ahead, 12-5. Mills dealt with swirling winds at the Torrey Pines Football Stadium to nail kicks of 25, 32 and 25 yards, along with a point-blank shot between the posts.
