The University of California completed their third straight sweep of their two-game series with the University of British Columbia, beating the Thunderbirds 46-20 Sunday in Vancouver.
Center Brad Harrington scored two tries for Cal in what was a typically tough match for all the players.
Cal ran out to a 10-0 lead thanks to a penalty from Jake Anderson and a Brendan Daly try, which Anderson converted.
But UBC replied with a Daffyd Samuel try and a penalty from Carlin Hamstra to make it 15-8. Cal ran away with it then. A torrid scoring spree saw Harrington score either side of a Seamus Kelly try, and when No. 8 Danny Barrett went over, it was 36-8 Cal midway through the second half.
UBC scored twice then, through No. 8 Alex Daniel and captain Alex Kam, but Paul Bosco's try put the game away.
This was one of the most important matches of the season for Cal, which has no 15s championship to play for after pulling out of D1-A competition. The Bears now look ahead UC Santa Cruz April 1 and then St. Mary's on April 15, which promises to be a thriller as usual.
Cal sites 14-1 for the season.
Tries: Harrington 2, Daly, Kelly Barrett, Bosco
