There was a case or two of deja vu for WSIHE teams this week. Women's Rugby, who have started on fire, won by the same 40-5 scoreline as their season opener the previous week; Men's Football 1sts suffered a consecutive defeat to a side from Wales; Women's Football 1sts drew against another university from Cardiff; and Mixed Golf picked up a win over University of Kent for the second time in seven days.
Speaking before the match against Kent at the Goodwood Downs course captain Jack Raison said, “We beat them 5-1 round their course last week. They've come here and hopefully it'll be a quick 6-0 for us today.”
Things weren't that straightforward for Raison's team of Jordan Brown, Josh Henderson, Beth Yeoman, Charles Kelly and James Jardine in a 4-2 win that sent Chichester to the top of South Eastern 2A.
The golfers are hoping to build on a year where the team picked up Most Improved BUCS Club at the Sports Awards. “We had a very solid season last year” added Raison, “We then got to the cup final at Goodwood but we ended up losing to Royal Holloway so we came second in the league and runners up in the cup."
“Royal Holloway got promoted so they're no longer in our league or the cup. This year I think we can go unbeaten and win the cup and the league and get promoted. It would be nice to see how we do against the teams above us."
The Women's 1sts were 4-1 down against Cardiff Met before No.9 Lucy Cook inspired a dramatic comeback. Cook scored all four for Chichester - the last strike that nicked a point, in what coach Perry Northeast described as a “smash and grab second half performance”, came in time added on.
That's three games unbeaten now in the Prem South for the WSIHE women.
Elsewhere in football there were cup wins for the Men's Threes, Fives and a walkover for the Sixes.
Volleyball Men's and Women's 1sts both had chances to take top spot in their divisions at this early stage in the season.
The men took advantage of the opportunity with a 3-0 away win against south coast rivals Portsmouth whilst the women lost 3-1 to Pompey at the Tudor Hale.
Netball 1sts and 2nds won tight matches against UCL and Kingston in the league and cup respectively.
Away at Westminster in the cup all four Men's Tennis players found themselves playing higher rated opponents. Harry Vaughan and Charlie Fennell continued their winning streak with straight set singles wins, while both Tom Pullen and Joey Graham lost theirs in tough matches.
With all to play for in the doubles Vaughan and Graham came through with a double bagel 6-0 6-0 and Pullen and Fennell dug in for the WSIHE win in a high intensity 6-4 7-5 decider.
