NTU 4 -2 UoN
Women's football post-match interview:
Nottingham Trent continued their domination at Meadow Lane in recent years, with a 4-2 victory in the women's football.
In a high quality affair, the UoN Ladies – playing against a side from the division above – were beaten in the air on a number of occasions by their opponents.
The first half-was physical and keenly fought, with Trent taking advantage of their early calmness on the ball to win a number of corners and free-kicks. Eventually the pressure told, as Emma Hullingsworth turned the ball in from a Demi Greenham corner. UoN had a chance to hit back immediately as Shannon Swift, a presence up front all afternoon, turned the ball over the bar when through one-on-one.
The equalizer came with just 10 minutes left of the 1st half left, as Lauren Heria pounced on a rebounded Ejupi shot to turn the ball into the back of the net. The teams went in level at the break, with UoN having established a foothold in the match.
UoN 33-44 Trent
Final Buzzer Commentary:
Post-Match Interview with UoN Captain Emma Bewick:
The afternoon started off with a sense of optimism for the Uni of Netball team who were no doubt the under dogs having finished 5th in the BUCS leagues whilst Trent finished 3rd. The first quarter was a tight run affair ending in a Trent lead of 11-10 but Uni Of were leading 5-3 in the first part of the game. The team looked confident going into the second quarter and their positive attitude paid off in a 20-20 score at half time.
The 3rd quarter is where the game was won with Uni Of's Goal Attack Ellie Davie playing a good game but went off injured and the quarter ended in a 34-29 lead to Trent that would prove too hard to over turn in the last quarter. In the final quarter the team played with great spirit but Trent kept marching on to achieve a 44-33 win over their rivals. You couldn't fault the team's enthusiasm and determination and they did themselves proud. Captain Emma Bewick played the role of Wing Attack and Center and played exceptionally well and epitomized the team's performance level. The Uni of Goal Scorer Harriet Welton also had a notably cracking game.

UoN 11–2 Trent
Women's futsal post-match interview:
An absolutely commanding performance from the women’s futsal team inspired an 11-2 victory over Trent in the Women’s Futsal and gave UoN a 5-0 lead in the Varsity series.
With both teams winning their respective leagues, the University of Nottingham went into the game as favourites being in the league above Trent however they knew that their opponents were not to be taken lightly. The early stages of the game seemed to suggest otherwise with UoN taking a 1-0 lead within the first minute of play through number 10 Liz Ejupi. Following the opening goal, she followed it up with 2 goals in quick succession securing a 5 minute hat-trick and a 3-0 lead for UoN. Trent finally managed to beat the seemingly unstoppable UoN keeper, comeback on? Not if the UoN team had anything to do with it, 3 more goals before half-time gave us a 6-1 lead going into half time.
Much of the same as the teams were back onto the pitch after half-time and 2 quick goals left Ejupi searching for 1 more to secure her double hat-trick and gave the team an 8-1 advantage over Trent. 2 more goals and we were into double figures with the clock ticking down and the game moving into its final 5 minutes. Was there any way back for Trent?
On Tuesday morning, Graduation Ball dinner tickets went on sale - with students queuing up from as early as 3am to try and secure one of the years most prized items. With only 350 dinner tickets available for a student population of 8000 gradudates this year, many students have complained that simply not enough tickets were on sale - with some students who queued up in the Portland building from 5.30am not getting the chance to buy a dinner ticket for one of the years most prestigious nights.
Over 2000 'Entertainment' tickets, were available on Wednesday morning for those students who missed out, however that has not stopped the complaints raining in on the Event's Facebook page.
Looking back at the story on the Pulse, Annabel began by explaining how the events unfolded - and some of the complaints that the students had, including over the controversial decision to allow non-University of Nottingham students to attend.
Trying to uncover what really happened on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, and what students were most upset with in how the events unfolded, we spoke to those around campus to find out their experiences:
UoN 4-3 Trent
Post-match ice hockey interview with UoN's Jonathan Betts:
Post-match ice hockey interview with UoN's Tom Bradshaw:
In the highlight of the Varsity series it's our beloved UoN that brings home that crucial point, leaving the current Varsity score standing at 6-1.
An incredible first period saw the green and gold UoN team head into the first break with a 3-0 lead. UoN goalie Jonathan Betts becoming a fan favourite as he blocked every shot Trent could fire at him. The momentum stayed with us as UoN went on to score a 4th goal in the second period. Tom Bradshaw's second of the night provided an even more miserable score line for our friends down the road.
The start of the third period brought with it Trent's first goal of the night as Trent number 13 Joseph Steeples slotted one past Betts within two minutes of the period starting. A second and third quickly followed as Trent brought the game to an exciting climax with 6 minutes left on the clock. The tension was unbearable as UoN held their lead.
