Good week for the Women’s Lacrosse Club this week despite some losses with some tough and hard fought games for all teams. Highlight of the week was the 2s and 3s match with excellent display from both teams with the 2s winning 18-8 in the end.  The 1s and 4s lost their match respectively against University of Durham (12-5) and University of Stirling 1s (9-5).

Tough week for the men’s football club with two losses this week with the 1s losing their BUCS 1A league match 4-1 against University of Glasgow 1s. The 2s Scottish Conference Cup campaign finished early this season with a tight match coming down to the wire, losing 4-3 to a strong University of Aberdeen 1s side.

Our waterpolo teams had highs and lows this week. Although the results were not all wins, there were lots of really encouraging performances. The womens 2s celebrated their first win of the season, 12-8 against tough team from University of Aberdeen 1s. A great display of teamwork and shows how far the team has come since the start of the semester. Extra credit goes to Rosa, who scored at least 9 of the goals! Mens 2s team were away to Strathclyde. With no substitution players, the boys did a great job to keep up the tempo, with a strong University of Strathclyde side losing to their first team with a 34-6 score. 

Womens 1s and mens 1s both played Durham at home. A really tough match for both teams. The Men really brought it back in the second half, coming back from 3-8 to end 10-13. The women played with determination, with some spectacular defence from the team but succumbed to Durham with a score of 11-9 at full time.

An amazing effort from everyone there on the day!

This week our Table Tennis club had their league day matches with all their teams out in force. Men’s 1s suffered a heavy defeat against University of Nottingham 1s (17-0) and Nottingham Trent 1s (13-4) in the Premier North division. Men’s 2s won the two matches played with confidence beating University of Strathclyde 1s and University of Aberdeen 1s. St Andrews turned out to be the only challenging opponent for men’s 3s - the tough match finished with our close win (9-8).

Both our women’s team (1s and 2s) were amazing by beating all the other universities in the BUCS 1A division and came down to both Edinburgh teams to decide the league champions. The women’s 1s came out with a 3-0 win in the end, meaning the women’s 1s never dropped a single game during the whole weekend.

Congratulations to the 1s who won all 3 of their games at the Scottish Cup today! The results are as follows, 36-6 against Aberdeen Nets 2, 33-7 against ENC Onyx and 41-6 against the Vixens.
Great results and should hopefully put them in good stead for the final 16 of the Scottish Cup!

The netball club had two BUCS matches this week, the 6s sadly lost their match against University of Glasgow 3s, 38-35. The 7s had a great match, with great control and team work throughout. They finished the match with a 55-14 win over the University of Dundee 4s.

The women’s hockey club had an overall positive week in their Scottish cup matches. The 1s had a convincing 5-1 win over Inverleith 1s and the 2s follow suit with a tight 3-2 win over University of St Andrews 1s. The club had two tough draw results which both ended in losses on flicks in the end. The first was the 3s against Stirling Wanderers (1-1) and the second was the 6s against the Granite City Wanderers 2s (3-3). The fours were on top form beating AGSFP 4-0 and the 5s had a tight encounter against Ardrossen Academy winning 3-2 in the end. The 9s match was an epic with both sides leading at different points in the match, sadly the 9s didn’t prevail this losing 4-3 at full time.

This week EUBC had a mixed week, the two’s started the day off with a solid 11-1 win against the University of Strathclyde 2s and shows their domination by equalling their overall score from their last encounter. The thirds had a very intense encounter against Napier, with the lead switching hands a few times, but both sides came out with a  6-6 draw. The fours had a nice trip up to Dundee to play against the Abertay Dundee University 1s and coming home with a 8-4 win. The Fifths did well despite their 9-3 loss, considering that their opponents were from the league above them last season, University of Stirling 2s. Convincing wins from the rest to solidify their positions in their respective leagues, but it is interesting to note that as it stands, the Fourths are currently above the Thirds in the BUCS league

Shinty had a mixed week but have tonnes of positives to take away this week. The women’s 1s gave Robert Gordon University 1s a great game, and despite the 3-2 loss are thrilled with outcome as RGU are last year's league champions! The men’s 1s were on top form with a 17-0 win over RGU men’s 1s
