Other winning teams included the UoL Equestrian team, who’s 1st and 2nd team both defeated JMU competition, victory for both the mens and women volleyball teams (2-0 and 2-1 respectively), and a win for the Liverpool Netball girls 3rd team again JMU 2s. The Liverpool University Lacrosse men won 8-4 and the women stormed ahead with a 20-3 victory. Other results are listed below.

Liverpool University Women’s football won one of their games 3-0 and lost the second.
The men’s and women’s tennis smashed JMU out of court with the men winning 4-2 and the women winning 5-1.
Badminton women beat their men to it, with a 7-1 win and a 4-4 draw respectively, although their men did win their premier league play off game against Leeds Beckett today 8-0 so we’ll let them off.
We’re even better than JMU at golf – Uol putted a 4.5 in comparison to JMU’s measly 1.5.
The Liverpool Snowriders beat JMU on the (dry) slopes.
The riding team had a double-victory day, with one team winning the Varsity against JMU and another galloping through regional BUCS to get a place in the nationals.
Both the mens and women lacrosse team smashed varsity with a 20-3 win for the girls and a 8-4 victory for the boys
Yes, you read that right – this university was a trampolining squad. And to make it even better they won varsity with a score of 270.9 over JMU’s 266.9.
VC Janet Beer (Babe)
And finally, Guild President Harry Anderson showed us that VC Janet Beer was somewhat sheepishly supporting UoL, but the fact she even posed for this makes her a bit of a legend.
