Though the weather was cooling off Lunchtime Sport was heating up as the finals of all sports were played across 2 weeks before exams. Some spectacular play resulted in thrilling matches and close finals with extra time required in some cases. On Monday the Ultimate Disc final was played in wonderful sunny conditions resulting in an excellent display. Adventures of Huckleburry Spin claimed the victory 10 – 6 to be crowned the semester 1 champions.
On Tuesday the 6-a-side soccer finals saw plenty of skill on display with Puyol Pants Down claiming the division 1 final 3-0, whilst Co-Op Potato needed extra time to claim the division 2 title with a 2-1 victory.
Wednesday rolled around and the action continued with 2 hotly contested Futsal Finals played in front of some excellent crowds. Egg Soup were too strong in the division 2 final, holding off the fast finishing Football Club FC 5-4. In the division 1 competition J.A.S.O.N.S were victorious 6 – 4 over The Last Minutes.
In the Touch Football finals, the chocolates were shared in division 1 between Gummy Bears & Pandamonium Bears after they were unable to split themselves. Both teams showed great sportsmanship to reach this decision after unusual circumstances prevented further play. The division 2 title was claimed by Bear Bums 10-9 in a highly entertaining match.
Across all competitions players should be proud of the high levels of sportsmanship displayed and the good nature in which games were played. It is excellent to see and shows that
