Good Week/Bad Week – BUCS Week Six

Another stellar week of #Uniball action, so much so, that we struggled to narrow down our Good and Bad Week nominations! Apologies to Coventry Jets and Hull Sharks, who put in stellar performances over Lincoln and Glasgow respectively.

GOOD WEEK

Honourable mentions;

  • The skid is over for the Birmingham Lions, who bounced back with victory over Swansea.
  • Tightening their grip on the Premier South Hertfordshire Hurricanes easily saw off Kingston.
  • Warwick Wolves took their frustration out on LJMU, running out 42-11 victors.

 

Edinburgh Napier KnightsEDINBURGH NAPIER KNIGHTS

A 2-0 start to the season, with two defensive shutouts to boot. The Napier Knights downed the Pyros 27-0 nearly a month after victory over Teesside. Edinburgh even managed to score twice through the air for the first time since records began (probably). It could have been worse for UWS too, had Edinburgh not missed two field goals

 

Aberystwyth LTARANNAU ABERYSTWYTH

AberWINstwyth finally get the W, ending an 11-game losing streak with victory over the struggling Bath Spa Bulldogs. With plenty of down time until they take to the field again, Tarannau now face Bournemouth Bobcats in late January looking to build on the morale boosting win.

Brunel Burners LBRUNEL BURNERS

Flying quietly under the radar, the Burners are sitting pretty at 4-0 heading in to the Christmas break, following their third shutout victory in succession, a 40-0 win over City Sentinels. With back-to-back games against their only real challengers coming out of the break, Brunel could have the 2A South wrapped up by the middle of February.

 

Bradford BearsBRADFORD BEARS

Three weeks after forfeiting at half time against the Raptors, the Bears find enough players to bounce back and defeat Chester Legion 30-0. The Bears become the third team this season to shut out Chester, and now sit at 2-1 with a home game against Leeds Gryphons next on the schedule.
