Bronze Medal Match: Cal 26, LIFE 7

Cal defeated LIFE for the bronze in the 2012 Collegiate Rugby Championship, by building up a huge lead against the Eagles and never giving LIFE much chance with bruising defense. Cal won the third place match 26-7.

Cal struck twice in the first half, first with Seamus Kelly scoring a try in the second minute, with Paul Bosco adding the conversion, and Connor Ring scoring four minutes later on a try, with Bosco again adding the conversion for a 14-0 lead. The halftime lead was pushed to 21-0 following a controversial call.

Down 26-0 midway through the second half, LIFE finally put a dent on the scoreboard with a try by Cornelius Dirksen and conversion by Joseph Cowley, but it would be too little, too late for the Eagles.

Cal finishes their season with a 20-3 record. Life wraps up their season with a 10-5 record.
