Winger Nick Schlobohm had a hat trick and flyback Garrett Brewer scored two tries in No. 4 Saint Mary's 55-31 rugby victory over top-ranked Cal at Pat Vincent Field on Saturday.

The Bears (16-2), playing their regular season finale, had the run of play for much of the day, but the Gaels (14-1) countered effectively.

"Against a great Cal program we just want to play respectable rugby," Gaels coach Tim O'Brien. "We did that today."

Cal captain Seamus Kelly scored in the first half, and the Bears got second-half tries from Andrew Battaglia, Harry Adolphus and Nicklas Boyer.

"We gave up a half-dozen lightning-strike-quick tries that mostly came from transition moments, most from 50 meters out," Cal coach Jack Clark said.
