Split squad beats Texas and Oklahoma 


Austin, Tex. – The Cal Varsity Rugby squad ran up a 78-5 win over Texas Sunday and then, for good measure, defeated Oklahoma 104-0 .  

The Bears made a quick trip to Austin for the doubleheader, leaving Berkeley Saturday morning and returning Sunday night. For their opponents, however, the trip could not end quickly enough as the Bears ran in 28 tries in the two matches.  

Cal’s head coach Jack Clark mixed first and second-side players into both line-ups, but Texas will remember the Bears’ Shaun Paga in particular. The No. 8 ran in six tries.  

Against Oklahoma, individual honors went to fullback Dave Guest who also scored six tries. He assumed kicking duties for the team as well, and his 12 conversions gave him a personal tally of 54 points on the day.
