Last week saw a confusing mix of matches for the C&G Football tournament, kicking off for a new term. Several matches were postponed or dropped after a number of problems arose, particularly with the ever-confused department of Mechanical Engineering. After struggling to have 2 extra Mech Eng teams added to the tournament last term, two matches involving Mech Eng teams were abandoned or postponed. A match between Lesta and Electrical and Electronic Engineering was also postponed at the request of EEE.
“It was going to be pretty tough to find our opposing team,” said a member of the Materials team (supposed to be facing Mech Eng 2 in a battle of wits and cunning). “We looked behind the trees, under the bushes but to no avail!” The continuing problems with Mechanical Engineering may be partly responsible for tournament organiser Sumeet Bhalla’s declaration today that “from now on no more teams will be added to the tournament, and no teams will be removed. I have altered the fixtures one last time just now, hence what you read now is final!”
In the two matches which definitely did take place, the far too enthusiastic legions of the Department of Computing took a serious beating. Civ Eng put 7 goals past DoC 5’s defence before the end of the first half and then finished by sending a further 9 goals through the goal to end the match 16-0. In an all-Computing match of DoC 3 vs DoC 4, DoC 3 dominated the match from the beginning ending the match 21-0.
This week’s full results are shown below:
- EEE P-P Maths
- Lesta L-W Mech Eng (Lesta conceded)
- Civ Eng 16-0 DoC5
- DoC3 21-0 DoC4
- Mech 2 NS-W Materials
