"Solid performances by Selwyn see them avenge last terms fall from div 1 and now reinstate themselves in the top tier of college lacrosse. Emma will also be joining them, squeezing out the Vets on goal difference." - League Secretary ... See MoreSee Less
Saturday saw the final match of the Selwyn-Robinson joint team, a definitive 2-1 victory (over this year’s Cuppers champions) to secure first place in the top division of women's college football! The game started strong with tight marking on defense and lots of movement in the midfield, ultimately culminating in a play that set Coral Bays-Muchmore up for a simple finish. Shortly into the second half, a handball in the keeper’s box gave Selwyn a golden opportunity to bring the score to 2-0 with a strong PK from Coral.
While there were an extraordinary number of corner kicks awarded to Pembroke throughout the match, Selwynson’s defense did an amazing job clearing the ball out of our defensive third. Aside from one unlucky own-goal with only 13 minutes left, Selwynson kept the pressure and intensity high until the final whistle.
We want to recognize everyone who has played on the team this year for their invaluable contribution to our communal success, but our man of the match is Emma Altmann-Richer for being an inspirational, motivational, and irreplaceable captain this year. She locks down our defensive line every match, and this was no exception.
CUPPERS RUNNERS UP!!!!!!! Selwyn played exceptionally today in the badminton cuppers semi-finals/finals. After a slightly nervous start, Selwyn comfortably beat Pembroke to earn their place in the final. Jesus provided tough opposition and despite playing amazingly, Selwyn were narrowly beaten. Congratulations to everyone who played - for a team who has come from being in the bottom division 2 years ago, to now being "one of the best in Cambridge" (Jesus captain) this is an incedible achievement! ...
