Rugby: Bears roar into national finals

No surprise here. Cal’s unbeaten (21-0) and top-ranked rugby 15s team blasted Navy 74-6 at Witter Rugby Field to advance to the finals of the Varsity Cup National Championships.

The Bears will meet BYU next Saturday at Provo, Utah for the Varsity Cup crown.

Navy (9-2) trailed just 12-6 in the semifinal match when the Bears used a 62-0 run to turn the game into a rout.

“We know what they do, but we weren’t prepared for them to do it quite as
well as they did,” said Navy head coach Mike Flanagan.
