We really do love a #BUCSWednesday Cup week. It’s nearing the end of the season and it’s getting more tense in the last few rounds of the cup, with semi-finals within touching distance!
We have some exciting matches this week, here’s our pick of cup matches to look out for on Wednesday 17th February!
MATCH OF THE DAY: Men’s Hockey 1s vs Leeds 2s
Sat at the top of Northern 2A, our men’s hockey 1s have had a perfect season. This Wednesday, they take on Leeds 2s down at Timperley sports club in the quarter final of the Northern Conference cup. In the last 16, they beat UCLan 1s 9-4 at Armitage. A win tomorrow will book their place in the semi final for the first time in over 10 years. We will be rooting for them!
Game starts: 2:00pm, Timperley Sports Club.
Men’s Rugby League 1s vs Loughborough 2s
After recently winning the Northern 1A for the first time in their clubs history, our men’s rugby league 1s are on a high and are determined to work hard for their promotion to the BUCS Premier North. First they face tough opposition Loughborough 2s, who are 3rd in the Midlands 1A . They were fortunate enough to get a BYE in the first round of the cup but they will hope to continue their form into the cup and push for the league cup double! Good luck lads!
Game starts: 2:00pm, Manchester Regional Arena.
Men’s Rugby Union 2s vs Sheffield 3s
Our Cheshire based rugby union side are also having a fantastic unbeaten season so far. They are currently top of the Northern 4A, winning all five of their league games. This Wednesday, they face Sheffield 3s away in the quarter final of the Northern Conference Plate. In the last round, they beat UCLan 2s 38-17 back in November. A win tomorrow will secure their semi final place against either Huddersfield 1s or Cumbria 2s. Bring home the victory guys!
Game starts: 2:00pm, Norton, Sheffield.
Women’s Tennis 1s vs Leeds Beckett 2s
Our women’s tennis team have also had a great season so far. They are currently 2nd in the Northern 2A, two points behind leaders Lancaster 1s. They are currently on a four game winning streak. In the last 16, they beat Chester 1s in a trilling 7-6 victory to book their place in the quarter finals of the Northern Conference Cup. Tomorrow, they face Leeds Carnegie 2s away who are also 2nd in their respective league. They will hope to use the momentum and confidence from their previous games to earn their place in the semi-finals of the cup!
Match starts: 10am, Leeds Indoor Courts, Headingly Campus.
Men’s Basketball 1s vs Sheffield 1s
After a fantastic 98-53 win against Keele 1s in the last 32 of the cup, our men’s basketball 1s secured their quarter final place against Sheffield 1s. Sheffield are currently 2nd in the Northern 2B and will no doubt be tough opposition. However, with the Northern 2A league title within touching distance, spirits are high within the club and a win tomorrow will certainly put a league, cup double on the cards at the end of the season! Good luck lads!
Tip off: 6pm, Goodwin Sports Centre, Sheffield.
We’ll be keeping you updated with all of the action on @MMUSport. Best of luck to all of our teams competing tomorrow!
