Despite being faced with true north-west weather, our clubs scattered themselves across the region for the second #BUCSWednesday of the season.
Here’s some of our favourite results from yesterday’s games.
MATCH OF THE DAY: Men’s Football 1st vs University of Manchester Men’s 1st
With their first win of the season already under their belts from last week, our men’s football team prepared to welcome University of Manchester to Sandbach FC.
Last season, the two teams met at Durham’s Maiden Castle in the Northern Conference Cup final, where our team clinched the title with a 2 -1 victory.
Yesterday’s game saw a tough first half for the team. Despite having better possession, an early low cross from the opposition earned UoM a 1 – 0 lead, extending this to 2 – 0 just before half term.
After a half time team talk, our team returned to the pitch determined not to concede the game. The determination worked, as Michael Schofield scored our first goal of the game. Encouraged, the team pushed forward to make another attempt on goal, which was headed wide.
With ten minutes to go and everything still to play for, Rio powered the ball into the bottom corner of the visitor’s goal, levelling the scoreline to 2 – 2 where the score remained for the final whistle.
One point in the bag and another great game for the team as they continue their campaign in the BUCS Northern 1A!
Women’s Hockey 1st vs Edge Hill University Women’s 1st
It’s been a great start to the year for our women’s hockey 1st team, as our Manchester and Cheshire-based clubs merged to create nothing short of a super team!
United as one, our women’s 1st team made their way to Edge Hill to earn an incredible 11 – 1 victory over the opposition!
Men’s Hockey 2nd vs Keele University Men’s 1st
Continuing our #hockeylove, yesterday also saw our men’s team earn a 6 – 5 victory after an intense game saw the lead go back and forth between the two teams. The 71st minute saw Tom Bolton score the winner, clinching another three points for the team.
Table Tennis 1st vs University of Liverpool Men’s 3rd
Our table tennis club are brand new this year, after a group who took part in our Active Campus sessions last year came together to form it!
Competing in the BUCS Northern 3A, yesterday’s game saw the team welcome Liverpool to the Sugden Sports Centre to earn a 13 – 4 victory over the visitors.
Men’s Badminton 1st vs Edge Hill University Men’s 1st
We managed to catch the tail end of this game at the Sugden Sports Centre yesterday, to see some fantastic game play by the team! After a great start to the season last week away at UCLan, winning 7 – 1, the team repeated the score line against Edge Hill yesterday.
Women’s Lacrosse 1st vs Keele University 1st
Yesterday saw our women’s lacrosse team earn their first win of the season against Keele on home turf, with an 11 – 4 victory!
Huge congratulations to all of our clubs who competed yesterday – another great Wednesday! Roll on next week!
