The Cal rugby team secured its sixth straight Dennis Storer Classic championship on Sunday with a 53-5 thrashing of host UCLA in Los Angeles.

The Bears shut out the Bruins until the final minutes of the game when Eddie de Dios' try gave UCLA its five points for the match. Cal registered eight tries, two each from senior co-captain Blaine Scully and sophomore Seamus Kelly.

Cal didn't waste any time getting on the scoreboard, with Scully's first try coming

two minutes into the match. Senior James Bailes converted to put Cal up 7-0.

The Bears cranked up the heat toward the end of the first half, logging three tries within six minutes. Bailes converted on the final one of the half after a try by senior Connor Ring, giving Cal a 27-0 edge at halftime.

The Bears continued their dominance, with Kelly scoring the first of his two tries early in the second half. Cal managed three more tries, all of which were followed by conversions.
