The Week In Sport | 31st January – 7th February 2018

By Amelia Cropper and Lucy Pritchard

It’s been quite a week for Ustinov sport this week with most teams winning their matches!

All three pool teams pulled off convincing wins, which keeps Pool A looking strong at the top of the table.

Ultimate Frisbee were also back in action and look set for promotion this season after overcoming St John’s B to win 9-1. It puts a 5 point gap between themselves and second placed University A coming into the final games of the year.

Women’s football were overpowered by a strong Collingwood side in their final game of the season and fell to a 10-0 defeat on Saturday. They remain mid-table but look set to endure a nervy end to the season while the teams around them play out their remaining rescheduled fixtures to decide the final league standings.

Men’s football A also suffered a loss this week, losing 4-1 to relegation rivals Hild & Bede A.

Both basketball teams were in action on Saturday. The women’s team suffered a defeat to a strong top of the table Cuth’s A side and have it all to play for in their remaining game against Josephine Butler A this coming Saturday. Meanwhile, the men’s team accomplished a respectable 47-31 win over Josephine Butler which means they finish the season in second place.

Men’s football B and Men’s hockey were awarded automatic 3-0 wins in their respective games due to opposition unavailability.

We’re nearing the end of the season for many of our teams this week so get down to cheer them on!
