Just before the start of the season the Men's team went to London to play the Ruislip/West Eagles Young Team. Despite many new players we were able to develope a comfortable lead in the first half. After having a weak start in the second half, the team needed some time to get back into the game and then managed to fight back with several fast breaks. With a well-taken shot in the last second of the game the Eagles made the last goal of the game, which finished with a score of 15-28.
The friendly game was a great chance to get some first practice with the team and to find our strengths and weaknesses. The first success showed that the team is on a solid level and today's experience will be especially valuable for the first League game against Newham Flames next Sunday.
In a thriller final against Bournemouth, the Women's team made it official: We are the best University handball team in the UK! The team would not have made it without the amazing support from our Men's team which came third in the plate cup.
