Santa Clara traveled to UC Santa Cruz for a friendly scrimmage. We played 3 20 min periods of 10s with SCU putting in 15 trys while UCSC scored 9 trys. The rookies from SCU were outstanding with some scoring their first trys ever. Thank you to UCSC for hosting
As we all move into the summer 7s mode, Santa Clara hosted a 10s round robin tournament on May 4th versus Saint Marys College and Santa Rosa Junior College.
Santa Clara came out on top with a 36-0 victory over SRJC as SCU was able to utilize their speed and move the ball into space, attacking the outside.
In the final match of the day, SCU was able to hold on and narrowly defeat SMC 19-14. Penalties hurt SCU and SMC was able to capitalize when SCU was playing short due to a yellow card. But SCU was able to regroup and held firm until they were at full strength.
A big thanks to all the family, friends, and alumni that made it out to Stanford on Saturday to cheer us on. Unfortunately, the 12-10 halftime lead we had was not enough as Stanford came out strong in the second half and was able to pull away for a 37-20 victory.
