Wednesday saw the start of the BUCS season with 21 fixtures on the cards, the day saw a mixed bag of results across the board, with two matches postponed due to travel issues. With 9 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses with 2 scores still to come in, Edinburgh's BUCS campaigns have kicked off, though perhaps not reliving the dominating glory from the Varsity weekend.

The result of the day was the Men’s Rugby 3’s picking up a 66-17 away win over Strathclyde 2’s. There were mixed results, particularly in the Men's Hockey with the 5’s drawing 0-0 after a tense clash with Heriot-Watt 2’s, The Women’s 2’s beat rivals Glasgow 1’s 1-0, the Women’s 7’s took home a 4-2 win over Heriot-Watt 2s, The Men’s 3’s narrowly lost 2-3 with Stirling 1’s, the Men’s 2’s drew 2-2 with a late goal against Glasgow 1’s and the Women’s 6’s stormed home with a 13-1 win over Stirling 3’s.

In the football the Men’s 1’s drew 3-3 with last year’s league champions Glasgow, the Women’s 2’s sent Aberdeen 1’s packing with a 2-1 victory and the Men’s 4’s (an IM team) beat Heriot-Watt 3’s 1-0.

This weekend sees 5 fixtures scheduled with Netball, Badminton and Volleyball all being hosted in Edinburgh and the Netball 5’s travelling up to Aberdeen. Good luck to all teams involved this weekend.
