#BUCSWednesday: our hockey teams go head-to-head!

After a very exciting #BUCSWednesday last week, it’s back to normality!

Here’s our picks of the games taking place on Wednesday 18 November.

MATCH OF THE DAY: Men’s Hockey 1s vs Men’s Hockey 2s


It’s a bit of a different feel to this week’s match of the day, as, for MMU Sport, it’s a win – win situation.

Both dominating forces at the top of the BUCS Northern 2A league, our men’s hockey 1st and 2nd teams come head-to-head for some friendly inter-campus rivalry.

As it stands, the 2nd team sit just one point ahead of our 1st team after two great victories over Keele and Liverpool John Moores.

And, last time the two teams met, back in February this year, the match finished in a 3 – 3 stalemate. We’ll be on the edge of our seats waiting to hear the result from this week’s game.

Push back: 2:00pm, Vagrants Hockey Club, Crewe

Men’s Water Polo 1s vs Liverpool 1s

 It’s been a great start to the season for our men’s water polo team who return to the pool this week looking to face Liverpool. The two teams met four weeks ago now; a game that finished on a 19 – 19 draw. Here’s hoping that competing in home water will give the team the advantage they need!

Game starts: 1:00pm, Manchester Aquatics Centre, Manchester

Women’s Rugby Union 1s vs Bangor 1s

It’s only their second game of the season so far, but it’s already looking like it’s going to be a good one for our women’s rugby union 1st team who welcome Bangor 1s to Broughton Park FC tomorrow.

Not counting Lancaster (who have two games under their belt already), the team are level pegging with Liverpool 1s; behind only by goal difference. Tomorrow’s game has the potential to change the standings dramatically in the Northern 2A, and we’re looking forward to it!

Kick off: 2:00pm, Broughton Park FC, Manchester

Men’s Rugby League 1s vs Manchester 1s

Rugby league is the game and promotion is the aim for our 1st team this year, as they currently sit at the top of the BUCS Northern 1A boasting a goal difference of 114 and six whole points between them and their nearest opposition, Liverpool John Moores.

Tomorrow our team head down the road to the Armitage Centre to face our local rivals University of Manchester and compete for a repeat performance of this season’s opening game.

Kick off: 2:00pm, The Armitage Centre, Manchester

We’ll be keeping you updated with all of the action on @MMUSport.  Best of luck to all of our teams competing tomorrow!
