On the second day of the BUCS Championships in Sheffield, netball took centre stage at the EIS as the Conference Cup finals and Trophy final were played out.

 

The Northern Conference Cup final was the first match of the day and saw University of Chester take on the University of Hull for the first time this season and the court side bleacher seating was packed for the event. It was a good game with displays of skill and determination from both sides but it was the University of Hull with their band of vocal supporteds who came out on top in a 48-32 victory. University of Chester's GD Siobhan Gibbons was awarded the fair play award for her discipline on court and awareness of the umpires calls, and player of the match went to the Hull GD, Sarah "Eagle" Jackson for some outstanding interceptions and great defensive vision.

Cambridge Netball, Bethany Tyrie Mid Conf Cup 2010The last of the Conference Cup finals of the day proved to be the most exciting of the day as the Midlands teams, Birmingham 2 and Cambridge played a closely matched game. In a dying moments Cambridge GD, Bethany Tyrie called injury time but with no-one ready to come on and the 30 second injury time rule in play, she had to come off the court while one goal was scored by Birmingham, taking the game to a full time draw and therefor, extra time. It was Birmingham who came out strongest in the extra time period of 14 minutes and won the match 42-39 after a great display of fitness and skill by both teams. The fair play award in this match went to Cambridge GD, Bethany Tyrie while Birmingham's WA Laura Wilson took the most valued player award for her pivotal role in the victory.

The final netball match of the Championships was the Trophy final between Loughborough 2 and Birmingham. After a great season for both teams and wins throughout the season, a great end to the season. Unfortunately for Birmingham, the Loughborough outfit were too stong from the very first quarter. Birmingham never gave up throughout the match. The final score was 60-29 to Loughborough 2. Fair player award went to the Birmingham GK and vice captain, Heather Ikwuemesi and most valued player, for some great interceptions during the game, went to Loughborough WD, Sofija Djukic.
