CPD Pacific: Cal vs St. Mary's
Did USA Rugby name a Barnburner of the Week? It appears they did not, but they can be given a pass since the choice was obvious. Outside of BYU and Cal there is no more explosive team than the St. Mary's Gaels. They've been stalking the Bears for several years now, looking for a big scalp and a place among the elite of the elite in college rugby. Two years ago they held Cal 20-5 at home, and the year before that a Kevin Swiryn led team gave Cal a semi-final scare in the playoffs. This past Sunday, the Gaels played fast and loose as they are want to do and threw everything they had at the Bears on offense. Their defense, however, was not there and the Bears could not be contained. The Gaels may have lost, but you can bet no one wants to face the small Moraga college come playoffs.
