Uni Take 7-5 Varsity lead after Hockey
31st March 2014
Beeston hockey club was the location of perhaps one of the most one dominant victories in Varsity series. Uni would take on Trent in 9 games over the course of the day winning, incredibly, all 9.
The two most important of these victories came in the Mens and Ladies first teams victories over their trent counterparts, securing UNI 2 points in the Varstiy sereis.
The ladies game was up first and the UNI team were dominant right from the off taking control of possession and terrority. It didnt take them long to turn this domination into points taking the lead after just 7 minutes. UNI never looked back and extending their lead at regular intervals running out 7-0 winners.
We spoke to the UNI captain Lucy after the game.
The men were also dominant in their game looking far too powerful and skillful for trent right from the early stages. It was only the Trent keeper who was in great form that kept the score 0-0 in the early stages. UNI would break the deadlock from a short corner which was impressively hit and extended their lead to 2-0 on the stroke of half time. The second half was a slightly more even contest, however Trent could not get back on level terms UNI running out 3-1 victors.
Next up in the Varsity series is Football at Meadow Lane just after easter.
