Cal and UCLA dominated pool play in the PAC Conference 7s Saturday at the UCLA campus.
Cal scored 28 tries in their four victories, and surrendered only three, defeating USC, Washington, Colorado, and a tenacious Arizona State. The Bruins went one better, as they notched four shutouts, blanking Arizona, Stanford, Oregon State, and Oregon to the tune of 165-0.
Arizona State and Oregon State both finished 2nd in their pools to enter the semifinals, but the results seem to show it will be a Bears v Bruins final.
Washington had high hopes for this weekend, but saw their captain and most explosive player, Justin Santos, go down with an injury early.However, they rebounded and had a shot to take 2nd. However, in the final game in their pool, the Huskies were edged 12-10 by Colorado. That meant there was a three-way tie at 2-2, and Arizona State took 2nd on points difference.
The only game UCLA or Cal teams played that was at all close was Cal v Arizona State, won by Cal 32-12.
In that match, Josh Tucker did well to open the scoring by chasing down his own kick and offloading to Alec Gletzer. The Bears scored six tries in all against ASU, including a second by Gletzer, which offset two tries by the Devils’ Ryan Koewler in a 32-12 victory.
“We wanted to push it hard, close out games and keep going through the fatigue,” said Brad Harrington, who scored a try and intercepted an ASU pass to set up Cal’s final try of the day by Eakalafi Okusi. Harrington added the punctuating conversion.
“We played hard and put in a good effort,” added Boyer, who also scored a
try against the Buffaloes. “We still need to improve to advance past the
semifinal but overall it was a good day.”
