#BUCSWednesday highlights: Onwards and CUPwards!

Many of our teams began their cup campaign this week!   Here’s some of our favourite results from yesterday’s games!

MATCH OF THE DAY: Men’s Basketball 1st vs Hull 1st


Our men’s basketball 1st team enjoyed a solid start to their cup campaign, as they welcomed the University of Hull men’s 1st team to the Sugden Sports Centre yesterday.

After two consecutive victories in the league, the team took to the court with their sights set on avoiding being knocked out so early on in the cup competition.  The team took an early lead, ahead 14 – 8 by the end of the first quarter, before extending their lead to 41 – 24 by half time.


Spurred on by the support of our cheerleaders, the team returned to the court for the second half, and quickly extended their lead to 65 – 33 by the end of the third quarter.  A solid performance from the home team saw the game finish up 80 – 50, cementing their place in the next round of the cup, which will see them face the University of Sheffield on Wednesday 11th November.

Women’s Hockey 3rd vs Lancaster 3rd


After a couple of tough weeks, our women’s hockey 3rd team enjoyed their first win of the season yesterday, securing a 1 – 0 win over Lancaster 3rd in the Conference Cup!  The pressure’s on for the team now, as they prepare to face Edge Hill University’s 1st team on Wednesday 11th November in the next round.

Women’s Netball 1st vs Durham 1st

Another week, another awesome score line.  Our currently unbeaten netball team made their way to Durham yesterday for their first cup game of the season.  After being knocked out in the early stages last year, the team were looking to make more of an impact in this year’s campaign.  And that’s what they did, as the stormed ahead to a 50 – 11 victory over the home side.  The next round sees them face either Leeds or Sheffield on Wednesday 11nd November – watch this space.

Women’s Water Polo 1st vs Lancaster 1st and Northumbria 1st

In the league, our water polo team took to the pool yesterday in the first of their round robin competitions.  Competing at York Sports Village, the team came face to face with Lancaster 1s first, and enjoyed an 8 – 6 victory, before conceding 7 – 3 to an extremely strong Northumbria side.  The team now wait until their next evening of games at Lancaster University on Sunday 22nd November.

Men’s Rugby Union 2nd vs Cumbria 1st

Our Cheshire-based men’s rugby union team are having a stormer so far this term.  Facing Cumbria at Crewe and Nantwich RUFC yesterday, the team endured a difficult first half.  Just 5 – 0 up at half time, the team returned to the pitch desperate to make more of a dent in the opposition.  And that they did, as they stormed ahead to a 41 – 0 victory over the visitors.

Huge congratulations to all of our clubs who competed yesterday – another great Wednesday!  Roll on next week!
