University of Bristol Mens 1st XI vs UWIC
The UBMHC 1st XI went into their final BUCS game with the intention of sending off their many final years with a fond farewell. The game was always going to be played at a high tempo with a lot of pride at stake. UWIC plus their one "golden" boy, were never in the game in the first 20 minutes as Bristol took an early lead through a Dave Bates deflection from Fresher Bolthouse on a short corner. Thankfully Bolthouse has realized he can't score short corners anymore so passed this one. With Bristol cruised they switched off a bit with 5 minutes to go in the first half and UWIC countered on this to grab one back after some sloppy defensive work from Bristol on the baseline. After a final rallying call for a good BUCS performance from Bristol, they started the second half much like the first with lots of the ball and playing well as the team they have become. This began to wear down UWIC so after another Dave Bates deflection, a Bolthouse flick from 10 yards out, they thought they'd give him a chance this time, and a Matt Poole goal, yes you read that correctly, Bristol ran out comfortable winners. Mom went to Matt Poole; think we felt bad for him so a bandwagon was started by himself. Dod went to Wyatt for never having done the yard in his final year.
