It was a quiet affair for Hartpury’s sport teams yesterday with only three fixtures being played due to half-term, and two of those games saw Hartpury advance to the next round of their respective cup competitions.
The women’s university rugby first team were the pick of the bunch as they sailed through to the next round of the BUCS Western Conference Cup. The squad ran out 36-0 winners against Aberystwyth firsts to book their place in the semi-final, where they will now meet Bournemouth firsts.
The men’s BUCS second XV secured their passage into the quarter-finals after a convincing 47-6 win over Swansea seconds in the BUCS Trophy. The team face further Welsh opposition in the form of Cardiff Met seconds in the next stage of the tournament.
The university football thirds were also in cup action and the squad were knocked out by Cardiff Met fifth team in their last-eight clash, with a solitary goal settling the tie.
