On Sunday, February 1st the newly formed LSE pool club brought its BUCS teams to Cambridge Snooker Centre to test them against a confident and experienced Cambridge side. Each Cambridge BUCS team member played a frame against each of their LSE counterparts, so that the Cambridge 1sts played LSE 1sts over 25 frames and similarly the 2nds played the 2nds.
On the day Cambridge were able use their greater experience as a team and as individuals to lead throughout and push on to a comfortable 31-19 win overall. The depth of Cambridge's squad showed in the particular dominance of our 2nd team over LSE's, and this bodes well for Varsity where a larger 12-man team will take on Oxford in May.
Despite their loss the LSE team showed promise with some solid performances from captain and former CUPC man Lee Mager, confident clearances from snooker afficionado Robert Li and a speedy break-n-dish from Chris Gully. On the Cambridge side Josh Cadney deserves mention for being the only man to win every one of his frames.
Overall both teams regarded the event as a success and we hope this marks the start of a series to be continued with a rematch in London next year
