Aston BUCS News - 1st March 2017

BUCS

We are extremely close to the end of the season now, and results in these weeks are crucial as they are the results which win titles or mean teams escape relegation.  

The stand out performance this week goes to the Mens Fencing team who competed against the University of Nottingham in the Midlands Conference Cup Semi-final. Expectations were high for the team as they won the competition last year in convincing fashion. Nottingham put in a strong effort but couldn't clinch the result as Aston finished 143-100 victors. Aston will now play the University of Oxford on the 8th March in the final.

The Netball firsts were also in action in this week as they played Oxford Brookes in the Midlands 4A division, eventually defeating them 56-21. This win puts Aston at the top of the division with only one game left till the end of the season. Their closet rivals the University of Derby have a game in hand on Aston, and will play the bottom team University of Wolverhampton next week. Hopes are high for the team as they just missed out on promotion last year finishing second. 

Overall it was not a great week of results for Aston, although there was a handle of good results which we can take positives from. We are all wishing the Fencing team good luck in their final next week! #TeamAston
