Kingston University weekly sports round-up – full results

The second week of the BUCS season proved a mixed one for Kingston’s sports teams. Seven came away with wins, nine tasted defeat and three teams drew, one of which would have felt more like a loss…

Football

KU’s men would have come into Wednesday’s game full of confidence after last weeks win over Chichester. This showed when they raced into a quick 3-1 lead inside 45 minutes. This would not last thought as London School of Economics found two goals in the second half without reply to steal a point. The women suffered a similar fate in the second half of their game, conceding 3 goals on route to a 4-2 defeat at home to the University of Essex.

Basketball

It was not the best opening round of fixtures for the men and women’s basketball teams. The women were trounced 91-14 by Buckinghamshire and a poor second quarter proved critical for the men as they went down 78-50 to Kings College London, despite the best efforts of the exceptional Egor Gorshkov.

Story of the day

It is not often that a sports club completes a clean sweep of victories but netball did just that with their teams, winning all three of their games on Wednesday. The second team were particularly impressive winning 42-7 away in Buckinghamsire. The first team are undefeated after their opening two games after seeing of Brunel 35 – 23 on home turf. The first team look long strong contenders for promotion this year on current form.

Performance of the week

The men’s hockey team earned KU some revenge over Buckinghamshire whose women’s basketball team had humiliated the cougars. The team matched that and more in whitewashing their Wycombe based opponents 10-0 in their own back yard to preserve their perfect start to the season.

The team look good to bounce straight back up after last years relegation to the BUCS South Eastern 3A League. They have a week long rest next week, before returning on November 2 when they will host Royal Holloway.
