TSC Weekend Round Up: Nov 12 & 13

Last weekend saw exciting news! Lacrosse played SFU in the Battle of BC, Table Tennis made their TSC competitive debut and Triathlon had a strong showing at the Phantom Run!


Battle of BC – Terry Fox Field, Burnaby, BC | November 11

The boys from UBC Lacrosse SC traveled to SFU on Friday ready to roll. Playing a team with faster feet and more organization on both the offensive and defensive ends was a nice change as we learned a lot from the game and how to better structure the way we play on both ends. Letting a few goals in early, the birds tried to bounce back with 4 goals in a few minutes however ultimately falling to the Leafs. They look forward to our next match up with them in semester 2.

Table Tennis
