Hartpury Sport round-up from October 21st, 2015

In another busy week of sporting action, Hartpury’s university football first team bounced back from last week’s defeat to Chichester firsts in style as they thrashed Exeter firsts 5-0.

Scott Wilson scored a brace and further efforts from Mustapha Bundu, Sirdic Adjei-Grant and an own goal ensured Hartpury took all three points in their third BUCS Premier South League fixture of the season.

The BUCS second XI entertained Bournemouth firsts in the BUCS Western 1A League and came away with a point after a 1-1 result, while the BUCS third team secured all three points with a 2-1 win over Bath seconds in the BUCS Western 2B League. The BUCS fourth team produced a win on the road as a single goal proved enough to defeat Exeter fourths in the BUCS Western 4A League.

The Under-19s seconds and thirds both maintained their 100% records in their respective leagues as they both overcame opposition by a single goal. The former beat Heart of Worcestershire first team 1-0 in the ECFA West Midlands Premier Cat 2 League while the latter produced a 2-1 victory away at Warwickshire College- Henley firsts in the ECFA West Midlands Cat 2C League.

 In the rugby, the university first XV made it two wins on the trot with a 43-6 win over Bristol firsts in the BUCS Premier South A League, while the BUCS seconds lost out by eight points in a 26-18 scoreline to Exeter seconds in the BUCS Premier South B League. The BUCS third team also lost by the same amount of points as they fell to Southampton firsts 23-15 in the BUCS Western 1A League.
