Eric Hipp In for a try against Cal

Game of the Day: University of California, Berkeley vs. University of California, Davis

After losing two games to UC Berkeley in the previous season, on January 31 UC Davis defeated this Pacific Mountain Conference opponent 52-10. The win for UC Davis came after a difficult loss against Stanford University the previous weekend with a final tally of 12-14.

Rebecca Graff, the Social Media Chair of UC Davis Women’s Rugby, said, “Many people didn’t expect anything of us this season. Primarily because we are a team comprised 80% of first and second years, with almost half of our starting lineup being rookies, who are completely new to the game. We’ve proved to the rugby community that this is only the beginning of our incredible season. We are so excited to continue our work throughout the spring.”

The Women’s Division I matchup took place at the Berkeley Golden Bears home and was the team’s first league game win of the 2015 season. Match highlights for UC Davis include six total conversions by first year, wing Becca Lehman.

 UC Davis Coach, Gary Allan Gordon, commented after the game, “Our efforts on the field have totally exceeded our expectations. Our game opened up as we created many spaces for beautiful runs. We have really good feelings about next week against Chico State and we’re excited to see where this season takes us as we continue building a formidable force.”

On February 7 UC Davis will be on the road again to face their next opponent, California State University, Chico.
