Week 6

FOOTBALL

 

The women’s team beat Newnham 3-0 away. The goals came
from Eva Dema, Liv Dadge and Lucy Carson. The score line didn’t accurately
reflect the dominance of the John’s/King’s side as their keeper made some good
saves. The woman of the match was Lucy Carson for continually testing the
Newnham defence with brilliant breakthrough runs on the wing.

 

Next match: Second Round Cuppers
against Pembroke 11:45am Saturday 17th on John’s pitches

 

Training: 4pm Thursday 15th on John’s
pitches

The men’s First team lost to Jesus in
the second round of Cuppers in an agonising game where nothing went Johns’ way. The next game is this weekend at home to
Selwyn.

Despite entering the second half at
0-0 and conceding 2 within the first 10 minutes, John’s IIIs came back with a
marvellous performance to run out 9-3 winners in the second round of the cup
against Robinson IIIs and progress through the quarter finals. Both Adil Lakha
and John Perry take the men of the match vote for brilliant individual
performances. Next weekend we face Pembroke IIIs in the league, please contact
Ryan Walker (rgw39) if you are interested in playing.

 

 

FRISBEE

The St. John’s Ultimate Frisbee team
recorded their opening win of the season on Sunday, beating Chrembroke House 10
– 5. A good performance from this term’s new recruits this, the only loss was a
frisbee that had a stud put through it.

Week 4

FOOTBALL

The St John’s 1st

in the Second Round of Cuppers this weekend in what will be the biggest game of
term.

Week 3

FOOTBALL

No
game for the 1s or 2s this weekend, but the 1s play Emma in the first round of
Cuppers away on Saturday so go show your support!

In what promised to be a very good game, it was the
brilliant John’s IIIs who prevailed against Homerton IIIs! Unfortunately, the
intense build up to the game wasn’t a fair reflection on the actual result,
where we came out on top in a 12-0 victory thanks to 6 goals from star striker
Adil (who should’ve scored many more) and some from our new players. Next week
we should be playing Downing IIIs in the cup, although this hasn’t been
confirmed. Anyone interested in playing please contact Ryan Walker (rgw39), all
abilities welcome!

The women’s team won
15-0 against Wolfson/Darwin. Phoebe scored 5, Liv scored 5, Eva scored 4 and
Kath scored 1. In summary, they smashed them. Mikaela was woman of the match. The
next women’s training is 3pm on Friday and they will have a match next weekend.

 

ULTIMATE FRISBEE

 

The Ultimate
Frisbee team started off the season with an extremely tight game on Wednesday
which finished 8-7 to Jesus College. The final result may have been unfortunate
but there were many positives to take forward into the rest of the season.

 

Next training is
on Wednesday at 2pm. Email Alfie Curry on ac2064 for details.

RUGBY

The Redboys beat
Downing convincingly in the league this weekend.

FOOTBALL

The men’s football 1st XI beat Kings 2-1 to start their season in the best way. A brilliant solo goal from Sam Smith gave the team the lead, before a Kings penalty made it 1-1 at the break. A last minute winner from Hearn earned Johns their 3 points, and Abhik Vinod was Man of the Match. See the noticeboard for a full match report. The next match is in two weeks against Emma I in the first round of Cuppers.

A great team effort helped the John’s and King’s women’s football team to beat Pembroke 2s 10-1 in their first match of the season. A goal each from Phoebe and Rosanna, two from Eva, and hat-tricks from Isabel and Kath led to a decisive win. Kath was Woman of the Match for her fabulous three goals and for also tracking brilliantly to defend.

Women and non-binary students who are interested in playing basketball in a fun, low pressure environment – this is for you. All skill levels welcome!
Email Annie Lyons (afl36) if you want to know more

A note from the University Basketball team:

College basketball offers the opportunity to play sport in a low pressure, sociable environment. Whether you’ve never touched a basketball before in your life, or you’ve played for years, we want to provide a space where you can come down, learn some new skills and meet some great women and non-binary people.

A new system of College league competition has been established for the 2018-19 season, which will provide opportunities for player development in the Michaelmas term, and a 3×3 or 5×5 league in Lent term (this will depend on player numbers).

We will be running training sessions every Saturday of Michaelmas term from 9:45-11am at the Kelsey Kerridge Sports Centre, coached by players from the University Women’s teams. These are open to all women + non-binary students in Cambridge and we would like to encourage people who have never played before to come and give it a try. The sessions will have a small fee to cover the court rental, payable on site per session. We encourage all those coming down to play regularly to look into funding available in your college to support participation in sport.

Sports Results

The College Basketball team defeated Darwin 50-41 in the Cuppers Final to take the trophy back to Johnsbridge.

In cricket, the season started with the team beating touring team Hetorai by 73 runs (Selway, 100*). In Cuppers, the team beat Clare by 9 wickets before their match against Christ’s was abandoned due to rain (with John’s set to win by Duckworth Lewis by 25 runs). The team then lost to Emma by 10 runs, meaning progression in the competition is in the balance.
