Aston BUCS News - 8th February 2017

BUCS

Following last weeks mixed bag of results our Aston teams were back in action and fired up for this round of fixtures. This point in the season is when teams start to make real promotion runs, so it is important our teams can win these crucial games if they wish to push for promotion this season. 

The most surprising victory of the week goes to the Womens Tennis team who defeated Coventry University seconds 10-2 in their first victory of the season. This victory is crucial for the team as it gives their dreams of staying up a boost; they are now only one point behind the University of Coventry on who are on three points. Spurred on by the Womens team performance, the Mens Tennis team put in a strong display against against a good University of East Anglia side, eventually drawing the game 6-6. East Anglia sit two places above Aston in the Midlands 3A division, so this performance against a strong side will also give the team hope as they aim to stay in their current division. 

In another surprising victory for Aston this week the Rugby second team defeated a previously dominant University of Birmingham 4th side by one point, with the game finishing 22-21. A University of Birmingham side who is currently fighting for promotion in their league and were strong favourites for this Midlands Conference Cup Quarter Final. The rugby seconds now play Birmingham City firsts in the next round to book their place in the final. With a strong rivalry this match will most definitely be a heated affair. The Semi-final takes at the Recreation Centre at 14:15 on the 22nd of February 2017. Feel free to pop down to support the team! 

The Mens fencing team competed in the Midlands Cup Quarter-finals this week, as they welcomed Oxford Brookes firsts. Expectations are high for the team as they were able to win the cup last year, and will be aiming to repeat that success this season. Aston put in a dominant display coming out easy victors, defeating Oxford Brookes 108-89.

Overall a fairly positive week. Let’s hope next week can bring even more success for our Aston teams!
