  3. EUG’s kick off and Sydney Uni come out strong

120 Sydney Uni students are braving the freezing temperatures this week in Tamworth as they compete in the Eastern Uni Games (EUG’s).

12 teams in 7 sports are representing the blue and gold with pride – basketball (men and women), futsal (men and women), one male golfer, two mixed lawn bowls, touch (men, women and mixed) and an ultimate Frisbee side.


Basketball are four from four after the first day. The men had a nail biting win over CSU 33-31 with a last second layup to clinch it. The women had three games and dominated all three beating CSU, UWS and then UNSW.

The futsal sides are two and two. This is the first year we have had a women’s futsal side and they were put to the sword by both UTS (8-3) and NCLE (24-6). The men are back in their second year and looking sharper than 2011. They have started with two wins form two. First taking out ANU (5-4) and then NCLE (5-2).

Our lone golfer is sitting fourth after the first round in what were cold and windy conditions at Tamworth Golf Course. Tim plays at Tamworth again tomorrow but competition then moves to Longyard Golf Course on Wednesday and Thursday, where Tim used to be a member.

Lawn bowls teams are struggling with the icy conditions up here and are yet to chalk up their first win.

The netball girls had a mixed day with one win and two losses. CSU and Avondale Tafe got the better of our girls (20-28) and (41-23), but then rebounded with an emphatic 40-7 win over UNSW.

Touch teams had mixed results today. Women are two from two beating UC 5-3 and NCLE 4-1. The men’s side drew 3-3 against UTS, lost to UC 5-2 and beat MQU 7-3. The mixed side lost two AVON 8-2 and AVON 5-2 but then managed a draw in their third game, 5-5 with CIT.

The Ultimate Frisbee had two wins and a loss in what were very tricky Frisbee conditions. They went down in their first game 11-7 to UNSW. They then took down NCLE 14-6 and MQU 15-3.
