VP Sport Dom Brown lets you know how our Bears fared home and away in this week's round of BUCS fixtures.
Finally, we are back with a BUCS Update and the first one of this busy term! As always there were a plethora of great fixtures taking place home and away this week and some fantastic results. Without further ado let’s get started.
Badminton Women’s 1st Team have started 2020 well with a 5-3 victory away from home at City University. Another team that travelled for a win were Women’s Football 1st Team who thrashed a Middlesex side 9-2. This isn’t the first time the girls have won matches convincingly so it must be a good season to be a striker.
Staying on football, the Men’s 1st Team followed their female counterparts in a gaining 3 points in a tighter game which saw the boys take on a strong LSE 2nd Team. Despite a tough game, they came out victors with a 3-2 victory. This places the boys comfortably at the top of their league.
Also at home, the Netball 1st Team took on a travelling Chichester team whilst they were looking to bounce back from an away defeat on Monday. They managed to put 55 points past their opposition as they cruised to a 55-28 victory in a well-rounded performance.
With Varsity coming up quickly, we have an exciting result coming from the Volleyball Men’s side. They managed to whitewash their Varsity counterparts in a stunning 3-0 win. Well done to the boys who performed so well in the sports hall on Wednesday, we will be hoping for a similar result on the 25th March.
The Men’s Hockey 1st Team pick up their fantastic form from where they left it last term. They beat a Portsmouth team 4-2 at home emphasising their strong position at the top of the table. Hopefully, the boys can see the 1st Team over the line!
In non-BUCS news, the Riding friendly team competed on Wednesday placing second as a team and with club President, Alice, placing first. Congratulations to all the girls who competed.
Alongside Riding, Athletics also took to the track in the LUCA Alexandra palace last week. The course was very tough so congratulations to all those who competed and navigated the muddy course successfully!
As I mentioned at the beginning, this is a stacked term with some massive events so it’s great to get it going with some fab results. We move!
