Belmont Shore pounded OMBAC Saturday in the marquee DI game of the week. The final score was 48-23, but Belmont led 31-9 at one point.
Leading the way in the scoring department for Belmont were Eric Duechle and Jack Tracy. Tracy scored two from the inside center position and Duechle two from blindside flanker.
“Eric had made a couple of big runs. He was clean through after about 10-15 minutes. He got a great break and he was just chased down short of the line,” said Belmont coach Ray Egan.
“The next time he broke through he kind of played it better. He offloaded and then received the ball back. And then he got one midfield score where he just broke through the line ripped through and just corner flagged it.
“He played well. We played him at No. 8 on back row moves, and he was obviously a big load to bring down. So he was doing a lot for us up front.”
Egan was equally pleased with the play of the rest of his pack, particularly tighthead prop Jake Grubbs and No. 7 Eddie McKenna.
“I think we kind of have the upper edge on the scrum again this week. Our lineout was a lot better with our new hooker, Joe Taufetee, in terms of the set piece. Our tight five did a lot of work,” he said.
Belmont Shore looks to go 3-0 against 1-0 Back Bay next week, while OMBAC tries to rebound against cross town rivals the San Diego Old Aztecs.
