Following a tough match against league leader St. Mary’s, the Broncos return to the Mission Campus to face off in their fourth league contest against the UCSB Gauchos. UCSB sits at 1-3 in the California conference, and although their lone victory came against the hapless Stanford Cardinal, that record may be deceptive. All of the Gauchos other three league matches have come against the top of the conference- Cal Poly, SMC, and SDSU. Further, UCSB exploded offensively to post a 74-12 victory against Stanford. UCSB is under the direction of first-year head coach Tim Lewis, an American who spent several years coaching high level rugby in New Zealand.
Following the weekend defeat at the hands of St. Mary’s, SCUTS sit in fourth place at 2-1. A win against the Gauchos will go far in helping the Broncos secure, at least, a top half finish on the season. “This is going to be a big challenge for us” said Santa Clara’s 8-Man Tim O’Hara, “It’s going to let us know where we are, as a program. They’ve already played some of the toughest teams in our league, so this will be a real chance to see where we are at. Its big game, we’re going to need a big crowd out there. We’ll see if we can run with the big dogs.”
Kick off will be at 2 pm on Bellomy Field, with a reserve game to follow.
