Uncategorised

Sydney Uni’s women’s touch football team have been promoted to UniSport Australia’s Nationals Div 1 after winning gold in the Div 2 final against University of Sunshine Coast.

Sydney Uni went through undefeated (5W, 1D) in the group stage to secure first place, scoring 53 tries while conceding just nine.

A mammoth 19-1 win over the University of Wollongong in the final pool game laid the platform for a successful finals run, trouncing Charles Sturt University 9-0 in the semi-final before taking care of USC with a 5-2 win in the final.

The promotion means the women’s team will now compete at the Div 1 Nationals in September.

The men’s touch football side came within inches of promotion but narrowly fell short by one competition point in the group stage behind¬†Avondale College of Higher Education, who beat them 8-7 in the semi-final, in third place.

They still walked away with some silverware, claiming bronze with a 7-6 triumph over cross-town rivals UTS.
