The Ducks (8-0) found themselves in an odd position following the compulsory round: tied with a squad at the end. Oregon faltered in the pyramid and tumbling round, but won the acro and toss portion to set up the 38.55-38.55 knot, heading into the acro event.
The tie was short lived as UO tallied a 9.40 or better in each heat to take a 67.1-64.29 lead into the pyramid event.
The Ducks picked up the pace in the pyramid event as they recorded a 10.0, their only one of the afternoon, 9.9 and 9.95 in heats one, two and three compared to the Bears' (2-4) 9.9, 9.85 and 9.85, respectively.
With a quarter of a point lead with the toss and tumbling events on deck, Oregon used the toss event to create a larger gap between the two teams, 125.6-121.94.
UO came out prepared in the tumbling portion of the meet as they won the duo pass, 9.2 to 8.6, trio pass 8.9 to 8.85 and the quad, 8.65 to 8.1.
The Ducks also wrapped up superior tallies in the aerial, six-element and open tumbling passes to also take that round from the Bears, 56.23 to 54.41, heading into the final event, the team routine.
Due to the space that Oregon created in the other events, UO was able to take the team routine round, 93.31 to 89.65 to tally a definitive almost 10 point difference victory, 275.135 to 265.91.
The Ducks are not back in action again until Apr. 17 at Azusa Pacific at 7 p.m.
