College sports teams in action

OUR girls' football squad had two decent results. Oxford visited Hardwick Heath and left with a share of the spoils after a 2-2 draw. Then two days later, our girls made the long trip to South Notts College in the ESFA Colleges Cup.

OUR girls' football squad had two decent results. Oxford visited Hardwick Heath and left with a share of the spoils after a 2-2 draw. Then two days later, our girls made the long trip to South Notts College in the ESFA Colleges Cup.

We went behind early on before Sasha Diston put us back on level terms. We then scored a second goal through Alisha Pugh before the break to put us ahead. In a tight second period we managed to edge further ahead when Sasha scored her second goal to make the final score 3-1. We are now in the quarter-finals where we meet Hull College away.

Team Bury made it five league wins in a row with a comprehensive 3-0 win against Stowmarket Town in the Ridgeons League Division One. Alex Steed put Team Bury ahead before Ryan Clark scored two sublime individual efforts to cap of an excellent performance. Team Bury have a very attractive home match against Diss Town on Monday 28 December, at Ram Meadow. Kick-off is 3pm.

When our rugby players went to Cambridge to play Long Road Sixth Form College last week, they found great playing conditions - and opposition players much larger than themselves. Also, as this was one of the last games for Long Road coach Kramer Ronaki before he moves to pastures new, the West Suffolk College players were greeted by a special version of the Haka.

We scored first, but at half-time it was 5-5. With the game firmly swinging in the favour of West Suffolk College in the second half, the Long Road players were continually asked to make last-ditch tackles. In contrast the West Suffolk defence proved well-drilled and any hint of an attack was quickly snuffed out.

The final try of the day was possibly the best scored by the West Suffolk team for many a year. The final score of Long Road Sixth Form 5, West Suffolk College 31 reflected our supremacy.

The West Suffolk College coaching staff were happy with the performance and especially the contribution of Jake Palmer and Adam White.
