The Blues finished the season on a high by qualifying to the Midlands Conference Cup Finals. Oxford Brookes won the cup, but we are immensely proud of our girls for getting this far! Well done team and looking forward to a new year.
Blues away win against East Anglia! The team goes undefeated for the season.
Blues home win against East Anglia in the Women's Midlands Conference Cup. This sees the Blues team qualified for the quarter final against Nottingham Trent Women's 2nd team.
CUWBbC Blues not only remain undefeated in their current season (4-0 and going strong!) but their latest victory means that they will be progressing onto the next match for the Cup Tournament. The Cup, which is separate from the regular BUCS league matches, consists of several do-or-die matches where teams must win their game in order to advance to the next round. Cambridge managed to pass through Round 1 without a match, which put them up against UEA in Round 2. Next up for the Cup Match (February 2020), Cambridge will play against Nottingham Trent in the quarter final, where they will have to come out with a win in order to advance to the semis.
Blues home win against Loughborough 3rd!
Despite having home-court advantage, the Cambridge Blues experienced a rough start in their game against Loughborough. Loughborough has earned its reputation in the UK as a sports-university, and their team warmed up confidently and their players’ skill showed promise of it being a tough match. Both teams struggled to get on the scoreboard in the first two minutes—Cambridge had several good looks at the basket, but nothing seemed to fall for them, and aggressive rebounds by Loughborough’s Centre Barlow made second chances for the Blues difficult to come by.
Blues home win against Bedforshire 1st! The season opener for the Blues places the team in an excellent position.
The CUWBbC Blues started their season off strong with a 59-29 win against Bedforshire. After being granted a “win” in last week’s game due to forfeiture, the Blues were eager to put their hard work and training to the test on home court. Bedforshire, ranked first in the league, arrived at the Blue’s home court with just seven players, while Cambridge had a full bench of twelve. Coach Laura Wright, confident with the fitness and skills of her team, instructed Cambridge to run quick but thorough plays in attempt to tire out Bedforshire.
