Legion win the Western Conference Final! Thump Seattle 32-10
July 2, 2023 | Snapdragon Stadium
It was a sunny day in San Diego and the Legion put together an amazing display of rugby to knock off rivals Seattle Seawolves. In typical Legion fashion, the game was close in the early stages of the game and was 13-3 Legion at the half.
Ma'a Nonu got the scoring started for San Diego with a 3-point drop goal from about 15 meters out. This was just the third drop goal in MLR Post-Season History. Not long later, Will Hooley made Seattle pay for a penalty with an easy 3 points off a penalty kick for the posts.
Prop Faka'osifolau Pifeleti scored the first try of the game to put the Legion at 13 points. Seattle would answer with a penalty goal to make the score 13-3 as the teams went into the sheds.
