Week 6

FOOTBALL

 

The women’s team beat Newnham 3-0 away. The goals came
from Eva Dema, Liv Dadge and Lucy Carson. The score line didn’t accurately
reflect the dominance of the John’s/King’s side as their keeper made some good
saves. The woman of the match was Lucy Carson for continually testing the
Newnham defence with brilliant breakthrough runs on the wing.

 

Next match: Second Round Cuppers
against Pembroke 11:45am Saturday 17th on John’s pitches

 

Training: 4pm Thursday 15th on John’s
pitches

The men’s First team lost to Jesus in
the second round of Cuppers in an agonising game where nothing went Johns’ way. The next game is this weekend at home to
Selwyn.

Despite entering the second half at
0-0 and conceding 2 within the first 10 minutes, John’s IIIs came back with a
marvellous performance to run out 9-3 winners in the second round of the cup
against Robinson IIIs and progress through the quarter finals. Both Adil Lakha
and John Perry take the men of the match vote for brilliant individual
performances. Next weekend we face Pembroke IIIs in the league, please contact
Ryan Walker (rgw39) if you are interested in playing.

 

 

FRISBEE

The St. John’s Ultimate Frisbee team
recorded their opening win of the season on Sunday, beating Chrembroke House 10
– 5. A good performance from this term’s new recruits this, the only loss was a
frisbee that had a stud put through it.

 

If interested in trying frisbee, training is on Wednesday at 2pm. Email Alfie Curry (ac2064) for details.

 

VOLLEYBALL

Week 4

FOOTBALL

The St John’s 1st
XI faced Pembroke I in a top of the table clash this weekend. Despite dominating
possession and having about 50 shots on target, Pembroke’s clinical finishing meant

in the Second Round of Cuppers this weekend in what will be the biggest game of
term.

 

SQUASH

 

The unbeaten Johns
squash team had another convincing win this week against Girton.

Redboy and Blackboy Movember

This year, both the St. John’s men’s rugby and football teams will be taking part in Movember. Movember raises money to tackle male health issues such as Prostate Cancer (the second most common cancer in men worldwide) and testicular cancer (the most common cancer in men under 40). It also raises awareness of mental health among men, with 1 in 8 men in the UK having experienced a mental health problem and 75% of suicides are men.

This year, the Redboys and Blackboys will be trying to make a difference, so please tolerate the questionable facial hair and donate at the link below.

Week 3

FOOTBALL

No
game for the 1s or 2s this weekend, but the 1s play Emma in the first round of
Cuppers away on Saturday so go show your support!

In what promised to be a very good game, it was the
brilliant John’s IIIs who prevailed against Homerton IIIs! Unfortunately, the
intense build up to the game wasn’t a fair reflection on the actual result,
where we came out on top in a 12-0 victory thanks to 6 goals from star striker
Adil (who should’ve scored many more) and some from our new players. Next week
we should be playing Downing IIIs in the cup, although this hasn’t been
confirmed. Anyone interested in playing please contact Ryan Walker (rgw39), all
abilities welcome!

The women’s team won
15-0 against Wolfson/Darwin. Phoebe scored 5, Liv scored 5, Eva scored 4 and
Kath scored 1. In summary, they smashed them. Mikaela was woman of the match. The
next women’s training is 3pm on Friday and they will have a match next weekend.

 

ULTIMATE FRISBEE

 

The Ultimate
Frisbee team started off the season with an extremely tight game on Wednesday
which finished 8-7 to Jesus College. The final result may have been unfortunate
but there were many positives to take forward into the rest of the season.

 

Next training is
on Wednesday at 2pm. Email Alfie Curry on ac2064 for details.

RUGBY

The Redboys beat
Downing convincingly in the league this weekend.
