The Gaels came out showing Cal a strong defensive stance: at the half, Cal only lead 6-0 from two penalty conversions.

Within the first 10 minutes of the second half, the Gaels showed great speed as outside center Tim Maupin broke through the Cal defense and set up a spectacular try for scrumhalf Blake McGahan in the corner.
