The season ended in the College Premier Division Pacific Conference with Central Washington, St. Mary’s and Cal Poly securing difficult victories in the final regular season weekend.

Central edged San Diego State 36-27 in a battle for third place on a windy CWU pitch in Ellensburg, Wash. Matt Lobe had an outstanding game kicking for CWU, stepping in for the injured Ryan Hamilton. He hit three conversions on the day, did well kicking from the hand, and also scored three tries.

“It was good to see the guys come back from the loss against St. Mary’s and really apply themselves and continue to develop as athletes,” said CWU Head Coach Bob Ford. “They did the job and put in the hard work to get here, and while we’d like to be in the playoffs, we finished 5-2 and I am proud of how they applied the lessons and picked themselves up and still competed.”

San Diego State ends the season a creditable 4-3.

St. Mary’s, meanwhile, finished 6-1 after beating UCLA 43-22. Head Coach Tim O’Brien was impressed with UCLA, especially flanker Dave Martini who was outstanding.

“I was surprised with how good they were given their record, and I think our players were surprised, too,” said O’Brien, whose squad trailed at halftime in Moraga. “Several of our guys had their [insert body part here] handed to them. UCLA is a very good team. In this league, you can’t let yourself get put on the back foot early.”

UCLA drops to 2-5. Meanwhile Cal Poly improved to 3-4 with a 51-31 victory over winless Claremont Colleges.
