  3. Day 3: Sydney Uni stand in medal contention

The Sydney Uni team has continued to record great results on day three of competition in Wollongong for the Eastern Uni Games, with several teams now in good stead for semi-finals.

Many teams have completed the pool stages of the tournament undefeated, a true testimony to the high level of competition that Sydney Uni bring to the table.

The Ultimate Frisbee team have continued to showcase their skills, handing Macquarie Uni a 15-0 defeat and took down the home side of Wollongong Uni in windy conditions, 13-8. Furthermore, the Women’s Futsal team has earnt themselves a position in the gold medal match after recording convincing wins; 9-3 vs. ACPE and 5-0 vs. UNSW. However, it was Men’s Futsal that stole the show with an impressive 21 goal game against UNDA, only conceding two goals.

Both Mixed and Women’s Netball took out successful wins on Day 3. Our Women took wins against Wollongong Uni, ACU and the USYD Cumberland campus. Meanwhile, the mixed team recorded mixed results, with wins against the USYD Cumberland campus and Wollongong Uni but unfortunately fell short of a strong UTS team. Both netball teams have tough match-ups today in their run to the finals.

Sydney Uni will be well represented as semi-finals commence. Teams including Men’s and Women’s Basketball, Men’s and Women’s Volleyball, Robert Palmer (Squash) and Ultimate Frisbee are looking to come out strong to get the early win.  All teams are confident in their ability to reach the afternoon gold medal matches.
