Following on from a loss last week, this Wednesday we headed to the new Sports Arena (yes, the smell from the foam pits has just about disappeared!) for the fourth Match of the Week.
This week’s game of basketball was undeniably exciting. The Durham side played extremely well and the scoreboard was pretty much neck and neck throughout the first two quarters, with the away side often edging a couple of points ahead. However, the Met boys really pulled it out of the bag when it mattered and finished the game with a comfortable win of 84-72, helping us bounce back in style (get it?!) from last week’s defeat.
Basketball wasn’t the only sport where Leeds Met had success: all four lacrosse teams beat their rivals, with the men’s 1st team scoring an incredible 21-0. It was also a good day for the rugby league 1st team who beat Loughborough 40-18 after a tough few weeks in the Carnegie Challenge Cup.
Next week we’re back in the Sports Arena for what is set to be a fierce game of netball against Leeds Uni. Make sure you join us for what is bound to be another thrilling match and hopefully another victory for the Met side!
