FLASH: Cal Launches CPD Season With A Shutout

Cal's rugby Bears launched their inaugural College Premier Division season with a 95-0 blanking of the San Diego State Aztecs at Old Mission Bay Club's "Little Q" pitch today.

Ten scorers dotted down a total of 15 tries for the Berkeley visitors, followed by ten conversions. Senior eight-man Derek Asbun crossed the line four times. Senior inside center Sean Gallinger and sophomore outside center Seamus Kelly both snagged twofers.

Today's match is first of seven in the newly minted league's Pacific Conference schedule leading to a three-round championship contest in May.

The Bears were undefeated in 15 pre-season starts which included notable matches against Air Force and British Columbia. With today's win, Cal's amassed the highest scoring record in the CPD and the division's first shutout.

For the year, the Bears have hung 988 points on their opponents while ceding only 51.

In other CPD action today, Darmouth defeated Delaware 15-5,  Navy beat Ohio State 44-26, Arizona State took down Colorado 48-19 and Army trounced Rutgers 58-15. (Updates on other CPD matches below).
