Aston BUCS News - 22nd February 2017

BUCS

These last two weeks of BUCS fixtures are crucial for our Aston teams and everyone involved in the clubs. It is in these two weeks that championship teams are made, meaning every point on offer is vital. Having performed really well last week with a 75% overall win rate, expectations were high for the majority of our teams to keep up these good performances. Despite a lot of our teams putting in a good performances this week, they were unable to maintain this winning streak as the majority of them suffered narrow losses. 

We start this week with the Midlands Conference Cup Semi-final which saw the Rugby seconds square up against BCU firsts. The game took place on a cold and wet Wednesday afternoon at the Recreation Centre. Despite BCU being strong favorites for the match the second team put in a valiant display, and were only a penalty or drop goal away from being crowned victors. The score finished 12-14 to BCU who now play Loughborough University in the final. Even though the team lost they should be extremely pleased with their performance and their cup run.

The stand out win this week came with Mens Football 1st defeating their league rivals Newman University 1st comfortably, 4-1. This win seals up the league for the 1st team as they are now three points ahead of their closest rivals the University of Wolverhampton with two games in hand. Congratulations to the team who have now been promoted two seasons in a row, and will play in the Midlands Division 3 next season.

Mens Tennis continued their winning form from as last week as they defeated Coventry University comfortably 12-0. The team have almost turned their season around as they were certain relegation contenders a few weeks ago. They are now only in the relegation zone on games won, with a game in hand on the two teams above them.

Despite not being a great week as a whole in terms of performances for Aston, there were definitely some stand out performances for certain teams. Mens Football winning the league and gaining promotion twice in a row is fantastic news, and we are wishing them luck for next season!
