SCUTS Down CSU, Now Look to D-1A Quarterfinals at St. Mary’s
Starting with an early try from freshman Jack O’Hara, Santa Clara took control of Colorado State early and never let their foot off the pedal. After Michael Cunningham rumbled his way through the CSU line for two tries, hooker Tyson Dethlefsen added one of his own to bring the second half score to 26-0 in favor of the SCUTS.
Santa Clara continued to pour in tries in the second half, beginning with a diving score by sophomore Riley White. After JJ Holmgren added two tries of his own, replacement scrumhalf Matt Lawson took an offload from Nick Leasure and raced between the posts to put an exclamation point on the 49-12 victory.
Now ranked #16 in all of college rugby, Santa Clara will take on a familiar opponent in St Mary’s for the D-1A quarterfinals. Kickoff is set for 3:00 pm at St. Mary’s in Moraga, with the B-side match before at 1:00 pm. We look forward to the continued support of our fans and we’ll see you all out there!
