Capital wins for Imperial, Edinburgh [12/Mar/10]

Good luck to everyone at Sheffield!

There was success for Edinburgh and Imperial as they both produced narrow wins to capture the SUS Indoor Championship and the SEAL senior league title, both scoring in the lower 2200s in the week leading up to BUCS Indoors in Sheffield. Also reviewed below are Kent v Imperial v London from 27th Feb and Reading v Brunel v London on 7th Mar.

Edinburgh were run very close by SUS Indoors' hosts Aberdeen the margin of 23 points with Heriot-Watt third. Edinburgh's team total was 2217 with a top score of 567 with Erik Rowbotham with scores in the 550s from the top two ladies Kyshiea Steele and Naomi Jones. Aberdeen were powered by the top two gents Dave Gardner and Seb Marler who notched 578 and 570 respectively to give Aberdeen an impressive 2194. Heriot-Watt were third with 2035. Heriot-Watt were also second in the novice team category with just short of 1500 as Edinburgh's novice team on 1527. Top individuals were Ali Grant (Heriot-Watt) on 518 and Migle Petruskeviciute (Edinburgh) on 522.

Imperial defeated Kent on the 27th Feb with 2196 far too much for Kent's total of 1820, although Kent were missing Sam Perkins and Emma Peck. Jordan Muscatello (Imperial) top scored with 562 in the match, which London did not attend. Kent did however win the novice match scoring 1467.

In their fourth and final SEAL league match Imperial took on Southampton and Essex. With three scores already in the 2190s from Imperial, a score of 2198 from Southampton, featuring a 571 from Brad Keogh ought to have put the match on a knife edge, but instead Imperial produced their best display of the season with 2229 to win the match and the title. Essex scored 2086 to come third, with Michael Judd on 568. Remarkably Imperial's top score of the match was the lowest top score of all three teams. Imperial's superior strength in depth won the day with Rhys Coombs 566 and Jordan Muscatello 563 the top men. Essex won the novice match with 1518 leave them and Surrey the only undefeated novice teams so far. Kent top the novice table.

In the last SEAL match, Reading had no trouble at all seeing off Brunel and London. Reading scored 2149 - a solid team effort with three scores in the 540s led by Graeme Anderson. Brunel were second on 1770 with London even further back on 1691. Reading's novices had a similarly comfortable margin of victory with 1449.

Are the Imps dark horses for BUCS medals? They will certainly fancy their chances having seemingly hit form at just the right time and with the confidence boost of winning their local league with no defeats at all. They have a formidable record in this competition too, finishing in the points (the top 8 senior recurve teams) in 7 out of the last 8 seasons. They last medalled at this event in 2004. SEAL will also have a strong presence in the novice team category.
