The skies opened up over the Bay Area this past weekend, forcing a number of Cal teams to play through less than ideal conditions.

Neither of the two that played through the rain and mud on Saturday were thwarted by the inclement weather. On Treasure Island, the rugby team churned out a 21-13 victory after falling behind to British Columbia. In recovering from its first halftime deficit all year, the Bears earned themselves a slim advantage going into the second portion of the World Cup -- determined by the cumulative score between the teams through two games, the second of which will be played in Vancouver on March 24.

Back in Berkeley, the Cal lacrosse team held its own on Witter Field, scoring its second conference victory against St. Mary's.

A day later, it was Cal baseball that finally opened its season after its Friday and Saturday games were rained out. The Bears provided ample drama after running out a 7-0 win in the first portion of their doubleheader against Utah. Down 5-2 heading into the ninth, Cal capped a four-run inning with freshman Andrew Knapp's walk-off single.

The men's tennis team also swept UCSB, 7-0, on Sunday.
