Sydney University are a win away from a top four berth in the North East AFL competition after their 75-point win over Sydney Swans at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Friday night.
The Students kicked 18 goals in the 116-41 shellacking, with Timothy Barton, Nicholas Winmar and Jacob Derickx each bagging three.
UWS Giants maintained the competition lead on 36 points after 12 rounds of the competition. Aspley are also on 36 points, but second on percentages, ahead of Sydney Swans and Northern Territory Thunder on 28 points.
Sydney University are outright fifth on 24 points, but that could change this Saturday when they take on ninth-placed Gold Coast Suns at Blacktown International Sports Park, with a 10.45 kick-off.
At the same time the third-placed Swans will be up against UWS Giants, while NT Thunder will tackle ninth-placed Gold Coast Suns. Should the Giants, the Suns and the Students triumph, Sydney University would move into the top four.
Meanwhile, in the Sydney Men’s Premier competition, Sydney University won the Premier Division, Division One and Division Three matches against UNSW-Eastern Suburbs on Saturday.
They also accounted for Camden Cats in Division Four and Manly Warringah in the Under 19 competition, with the only loss on the day coming in the Division Five match against UNSW-Eastern Suburbs.
And to wrap up a big day for campus AFL, Sydney University also won the Women’s Premier match against UNSW-Eastern Suburbs to maintain the competition lead.
