Canterbury Varsity Round Up: Day 4 – Netball, Jiu Jitsu, Athletics and Badminton

Day 4 of Canterbury Varsity 2019 saw some successful wins for #TeamChristChurch. 

If you missed today, you can catch the full details on our live blog.


4th team: LOSS 

One of the great goals from our Christ Church player.

The girls played so well despite their opposition being multiple leagues above them.

3rd team: LOSS

Another unfortunate loss for the girls, still a high scoring game. Our girls refused to back down!

But let’s look back at this swift play from the girls, flawless work. They made it look easy with this one.

2nd team: WIN!

This was by far one of the best games we’ve covered so far at this varsity. We were stunned at the girls’ fighting performance. Excellent play, sharp passes, goal after goals – we couldn’t have asked more from our #TeamChristChurch.

So, CCCU were ahead for the first two quarters. They dominated most of the play, kept in possession for the first half – but Kent equalised by the third quarter.

But Christ Church weren’t having any of it, by the start of the last quarter – we already secured the lead. The crowd got rowdier as it closed to the end.

And.. WE WON! Here’s the moment the crowd counted down the moment that we won the title of Canterbury Varsity winners 2019.

1’st team: LOSS 

This was one hell of a game with CCCU and UKC in full form. In the end, CCCU was simply unlucky because they were equally strong as their opponent. Kent managed to lead in the first quarter by 5 points, but for the rest of the game, CCCU pushed back and scored just as much.

Team Christ Church struggled to equalise, with Kent always 5-8 points ahead of them. Even though they played just as hard, at times, even harder. They struggled to close to gap. Kent’s defence team grew stronger in their defence as Christ Church’s attack went in full blast by the second half.

In the end, Christ Church lost their title of Canterbury Varsity champions but they were the winner in our eyes. The girls gave their blood, sweat and tears into that game and it was simply unlucky that they struggled to catch up from their weak start.

Badminton: Loss

We lost badminton but we did have a win for our ladies singles.

We had such a supportive crowd for the whole of badminton.

Jiu Jitsu & Athletics: Win

It was a shame that we couldn’t be there for coverage but athletics and jui jitsu did us proud by taking home the winner title!
