Golden Nuggets: Whose Scrum Axe?!

After beating Stanfeit 99-0 the past two years, rugby finally broke the 100-point barrier with a 109-0 victory. Though the fate of the Scrum Axe was never in jeopardy, it is nice to see it go back home to Berkeley.

Danny Barrett scored four tries, Seamus Kelly had a hat trick, Anthony Lombardo and Jake Wrobel had two each, and six other Golden Bears found the try zone as California defeated Stanford, 109-0, Saturday at Steuber Rugby Stadium.

Flyhalf Alex Aronson connected on 6-of-8 conversions and fullback Jake Anderson converted 7-of-9 while the Bears prevented the Cardinal from reaching the try zone.

Stanford flyhalf Jason Liljenquist was unable to avert the shutout when his 40-meter penalty kick bounced off the crossbar in the 49th minute.

Senior prop Jeremy Deterding bounced back from a minor midweek injury to play the entire match in his last collegiate battle for the Scrum Axe. "There was nothing that was going to stop me from going out there with my teammates and getting it done," he said. "We came out and played hard for a full 80 minutes. It didn't come down to the score but how hard we were working."

After the jump the women's basketball team falls short in a thrilling overtime game against fourth-ranked Stanford.
