Match 24: Cal 24, Army 5

Two Pac 12 schools clinched top seeds in pool play Saturday. A little more than hour apart, Arizona took the top seed in Pool C and Cal followed up in the final match of the day by grabbing the Pool D top seed. Cal’s 29-5 win against Army puts the Golden Bears in good position for Sunday.

With the winner awarded the top spot, Cal made sure to seize control early on. Connor ring, Bradley Harrington and Ahmed Chehade all scored a try to build a 17-0 lead in seven minutes of play before Army was able to get on the scoreboard. Cal then put the match away with a straight run up the middle by Paul Bosco for another try to give Cal a 24-5 lead following the conversion by Harrington. Cal would capitalize on a turnover by Army deep in their own zone for a little more insurance.

Cal clinched the top seed out of Pool D with the win and will advance to the championship bracket for Sunday. The Bears will face the Texas Longhorns, the second seed out of Pool C. The winner will face the winner of the Arizona-Navy match. Army will continue to play in the challenger bracket, and will meet North Carolina State in the first round of that bracket.
