UoN 5-6 Trent
Men's futsal post-match interview:
Trent got their first point of the Varsity series on the board with a pulsating, topsy-turvy 6-5 win. It was UoN who raced out of the blocks scoring twice within the first two minutes. Their opener scored by captain Hillarby, a delightful hit just outside the area that went in off the underside of the crossbar with the official nearest the goal correctly awarding the goal.
These opening minutes seemed to set the tone for the whole game. Crunching tackles were coming in from all angles and Trent were already chasing the game. Trent did create chances but were continually thwarted by some heroic saves from the UoN keeper and when it seemed that Trent were starting to control possession UoN worked a perfect training ground set piece to go 3-0, much to the delight of their coaching staff on the sidelines. However, in what was perhaps the key moment of the game, right on the stroke of half-time with 4.6 seconds left on the clock, Trent grabbed a goal back, with a fine low finish off both posts. It gave Trent and their legion of fans some hope and belief going into the break.
HT: UoN 3-1 NTU.
UoN 16-10 Trent
Lacrosse post-game reaction:
Lacrosse post-game interview with the UoN Captain:
The Men’s Lacrosse team were able to overcome an early deficit to earn a comfortable 16-10 win over their Trent rivals, gaining some revenge for their defeat in the fixture last year.
Both teams had performed well in their respective leagues, so whilst the University of Nottingham team started as favourites, they knew they were facing strong opposition from Trent. This was made evident in the early stages of the game, Trent quickly establishing a 3-0 lead. UoN refused to panic and were soon able to get themselves back into the game, goals from Upshaw, Wilcox and two from Angrisani helping to level the score at 4-4 by the end of the first quarter. UoN were able to capitalise on the shift in momentum throughout the second quarter, taking a 9-6 lead into the half.
UoN 13-1 Trent
Dodgeball commentary and post-match interview:
It was another fantastic day for UoN as the mixed dodgeball team travelled to Clifton Campus and managed to see off their opponents with ease. The game is played out of 7 rounds of 3 minutes each but our boys and girls didn’t even need that long, winning all of the first 4 rounds comfortably and even though the game was won they continued pressing in the remaining rounds, walking away with 6 wins and a draw.
Uni of went into this game as favourites and they certainly lived up to expectation, but they certainly had a bumpy start. In round 1 UoN had to fight back from only having 2 players to Trent’s 5 but thanks to some stellar catching that deficit changed very quickly. In rounds 2, 3 and 4 however it was far more routine, UoN generally ending the game with the majority of their players still in. The tensest round by far was round 5, where UoN had already wrapped up their win but Trent were playing to try and save some pride, and their number 26 certainly did that. He was Trent’s last man against 5 UoN players but thanks to some unbelievable dodging and great catches he brought it to 3 a side, with the round eventually going for a draw.
With the AGM set for Thursday 7th May in Portland C11, now is your chance to read through the manifestos for all the Candidates running. They will make a 1 minute speech on the night, and after this the floor will be open for questions to the potential candidates. Remember you have to be a PAID member of URN to either run or vote in the URN AGM - you can buy membership on the SU website.
(Please note how this particular vote works: The person with the most votes will be elected Station Editor and the person with the second most will be elected Deputy Station Editor. For this role only, candidates are also invited to run for another Committee position in the event that they do not achieve either Station Editor or Deputy Station Editor)
I came to university knowing that I wanted to get involved with student radio. During my time at URN I have been a Daytime and Speech presenter as well as Playlist Editor. My manifesto points have the overall aim to bring the station together as a team and give members the opportunity to get the best out their time at URN.
-Monthly meetings where every member of the station is invited to discuss any ideas they would like to put forward.
UoN 82-56 Trent
Men's basketball post-match interview:
In a match littered with fouls, the men’s basketball team took the momentum gained from the women’s into the men’s game, University of Nottingham winning a close fought battle.
After what panned out to be a comfortable 82-56 win, UoN take a 2-0 lead into the rest of the varsity series.
In a scrappy and tense first half neither team was able to capitalise on the abundance of free throws. Uni of took a slender 14 point lead into the second half thanks to some clever attacking ingenuity from MVP Carberry, with the forwards capitalising on some defensive errors, converting the 3 points.
With Trent chasing the game in the 2nd half we witnessed a more open period of play, playing right into Uni of's hands allowing them to capitalise on the lack of numbers defensively.
In truth, both games were easy victories for Uni of with their quality showing when it mattered. The cheerleader’s battle at half time proved more closely fought than the actual basketball.
Join us for the rest of series here on URN.
We Stand Together.
