Another week of sports action has passed with some exciting results across the board for CCCU’s teams.
A dominating display against the Brighton women saw CCCU claim a resounding 5-0 victory in their cup match, as they overwhelmed their opposition for the full 90 minutes. Injuries meant that many players had to step up and fill positions they don’t normally play.
Captain Mia Hyland said, “Player of the week was Alicia Conabeer, the fastest fresher on the pitch, class down the wing and was absolutely rapid for 90 mins.”
Men’s Rugby 1’s
The rugby first team suffered a loss to Roehampton 22-19. A determined performance nearly resulted in a win but ultimately injuries played a part as both Brandon Dhesi and Ben Gunter left the field.
Player of the week was awarded to Alex Gregan. Captain Ben Gunter said, “He showed great leadership skills once Brandon and I were off. He also won a lot of penalties as well as making every tackle he attempted.”
In their first game of the season against Kingston’s first team, CCCU were able to win all their matches in straight sets, picking up a 6-0 victory.
Player of the week was awarded to Jodie, Annett and Eva. Captain Liv Stapley said she couldn’t choose a winner because they all turned up and played some fab tennis.
Men’s Football 1’s
From 1 nil down CCCU were able to force an incredible comeback winning the game against Queen Mary’s first team 3-1. A heated encounter saw challenges flying in left right and centre.
Player of the match was awarded to Jaden, who gave a quality performance for the full 90 minutes.
The netball first team suffered defeat in a close game that ended 32-27 against the Kings College fourth team.
Captain Drew Goold said, “player of the week was Drew Harrington for coming up from the second team and being our main goal scorer.”
The men’s basketball team managed a narrow victory over Royal Holloway, in a game that went all the way to the final minute, ending 69-67.
Player of the week went to Matthew Philp, who came in as a real floor general, changing the game, grabbing a vital block and the all important game winner.
Captain Tudor Criveanu said, “he took charge late in the 4th quarter and kept our position for the game winner.”
The first game together for this new team resulted in a win against Barts, ending 29-20.
Player of the week was awarded to Jess, who stood out for her shooting outside of her normal position.
Women’s Hockey 2’s
Without a full team CCCU fell to a 3-1 loss against Imperial Medics.
On the bright side, player of the week was awarded to Sarah Ayerst who grabbed the first goal of the season for CCCU, a great performance from the fresher.
Captain Jayde Nichols said, ”She scored our first goal and just played an amazing game from start to finish.”
A real team performance but it unfortunately ended in a 52-0 defeat against Brunel. A strong defence by CCCU limiting Brunel who gained a 97-0-win last week.
Captain Lucy Relf said, “player of the week is Millie Bishop as she stepped up to playing in a new position and made huge tackles and ball runs.”
CCCU fell to a 29-18 loss, but they did improve on this same fixture from two weeks ago.
Player of the week was given to Imogen Thompson, who came up from the netball fourth team and played a great game at centre to help the movement of the team.
