A winless round of games for the Basketball team who put their all in against top-class competitions. Well done to the men 1’s who just missed out on a place in the cup final, however, if they keep playing and progressing as they have been, surely they will get themselves some silverware in the near future.

A mixed bag for the football teams this week well done to the men’s 2’s for an impressive 4-2 victory over Huddersfield.
Teesside, Leeds, and York are among the teams that the football teams will host this Wednesday as the teams have 5 matches scheduled at the sports park between 13:30 and 16:30.

Futsal

It’s not often that you know the result of a final before it takes place but it can be said without a shadow of a doubt that Sheffield Hallam has won the futsal conference cup. As our Men’s 1’s and 3’s Futsal teams are playing each other in the final of the Conference Cup on Thursday March 10 at EIS at 6 pm regardless of the result huge shout-out to the futsal team for taking over the cup final.

Golf

Golf 2’s WO VS – Lancaster 1’s Knockout

A heartbreaking semi-final for the golf team as they lose to UCLan in the cup hopefully, the teams can bounce back this week with a game against Manchester met in Hillsborough on Wednesdays at 10:30.

Lacrosse

Woman 1’s 10 vs 9 Leeds 4’s

An amazing hard-fought effort for the lacrosse who were able to get their first win of the season in a 10 – 9 win against Leeds, huge shout-out to the team that refused to give up. The ladies are not playing next week but the men are as they travel to Lancaster for their match.

Rugby union

Two dominating victories for the rugby union team winning both of the fixtures with both teams display great defences with the men’s 1’s only conceding 3 points and the women’s 1’s were unbreakable conceding nothing.

The ladies travel to Liverpool as the women’s 1’s take on Liverpool John Moores next week.

Tennis

Men’s 1’s 2 vs 4 Leeds Beckett 5’s
Men’s 2’s 0 vs 6 Sheffield 1’s
The tennis teams were unable to secure a win in the very hard games they had this week but look to change their form as both tennis teams take on Leeds at Hallamshire tennis club with a 12 o’clock start time.

American football

Knockout
American football 35 vs 0 Sheffield 1’s

Apparently, the American football team does know what pressure is as they were absolutely dominating once again, however, this time it was while playing against their bitter rivals scoring 35 points against the University of Sheffield without a single response, a huge shout-out to the American football team.

The team has a well-earned week off with no fixtures this week.

Rugby league
