The Mexico 7s team took a trip to Southern California this past weekend to get in some game training ahead of this month’s Pan-Am Games.
They took on Belmont Shore in three matches, winning two, a much improved performance by Los Serpientas.
Under Coach Simon Pierre they showed better organization on defense and more structure, but still lacked that need go-forward force on offense. Belmont Shore ran out a fairly young team headlined by Ed Pitts+.
But the trip was an indication of how hard Mexico is working toward making a strong showing at the Pan –Am Games in Guadalajara.
