Aston BUCS News - 15th March 2017

BUCS

We have now entered the penultimate week of fixtures in the BUCS 2016/17 Season. With many of our Aston teams having the fate of their season determined this week. 

The rugby firsts put in another dominating performance this week as they defeated the University of Warwick 87-7. This win keeps the teams title hopes alive as they go into next weeks match against the University of Staffordshire needing a bonus point win to clinch the title and promotion. 

The Netball firsts hopes were high coming into this week as they were fighting it out with the University of Derby for the title of the Midlands 4A division. Despite winning their match against Oxford Brookes 44-19 they were narrowly beaten to the title by one point having lost one more game than the Derby earlier in the season. 

Despite fighting extremely hard all season some of our teams did not have the seasons they would have liked, and were relegated from their divisions. Having showed a number of promising performances during the middle to end of the season, both the Mens and Womens Tennis teams will be disappointing that they finished bottom of the divisions. The Mens team were extremely unlucky having won two of their last four games while being relegated on the same points as the two teams above them. 

The Mens hockey team also ended their season in disappointing fashion having lost nine of their 10 games and being relegated. Although the team will be disheartened with their performance this season they can take experience from it as they put in encouraging performances all season against teams a lot stronger than them. With a number of players returning next year from their year work placements, hopes will be high that the team can put in a strong showing next year.
