Big Blue closely contested after Semester 1

10 May; Liam Petterson


Melbourne leads Monash in the Big Blue Varsity competition by the smallest of margins, with the tally at eight wins to seven in favour of Melbourne after a busy Semester of Varsity Sport.

Held at Melbourne’s Parkville campus on Wednesday 28 March, the first Big Blue saw Monash victorious in both Basketball games. The Monash men’s team dominated the contest throughout, winning 96 – 43, whilst the women’s game was closer as Monash prevailed 32 – 24. Monash were also thrilled to triumph 4 – 3 in Men’s hockey.

Melbourne took out both Touch matches. Women’s Touch was the standout team winning 10 – 1, whereas the Men’s Touch team edged an exciting encounter 7 – 6.

The second Big Blue of Semester 1 was hosted at Monash Clayton on Wednesday 2 May, and on home soil Monash won both Volleyball matches, mixed Ultimate Frisbee and the Women’s Hockey, whilst Melbourne clinched both Football matches.

The highlight of the day was the Men’s Football match, which finished 3 – 3 and was decided by a penalty shootout, with Melbourne finally prevailing.

Melbourne’s Captain and Juris Doctor student Sean Lally, who kicked the winning penalty, described the game as “one of those that you simply can’t script”. Lally praised the perseverance and resolve of his team to come back and win despite falling behind 2 – 0 in the opening fifteen minutes.

“I found that my university degree has been enjoyable in many respects but by some distance the highlight has been representing the university on the football field” said Lally, adding that representative sport gives his football “a sense of purpose”.

Outside of the Big Blue events, Melbourne beat Monash in Australian Rules in Round 1 of the Varsity Challenge Cup, which was also livestreamed on MU Sport’s Facebook page. The match was close at half-time, with Monash in the lead by just a point as both teams struggled to kick goals. However, it was Melbourne who kicked away in the second half to finish with 12.13.85 to Monash’s 5.9.39.

Melbourne’s Sport Performance Coordinator Tom Lutwyche observed the match, noting that “It was great to see two committed teams battling hard to win. The Varsity Challenge Cup Australian Rules in Semester 1, and Netball in Semester 2 is another exciting chance for student-athletes to get involved in University sport. We’re looking forward to playing other Group of Eight Universities as the competition progresses”.

Melbourne also picked up wins in both Men’s and Women’s Rowing, which took place at Melbourne’s College Regatta on Saturday 28 April. Melbourne also won a close T20 Cricket contest earlier in the year.

The action continues in Semester 2, with head-to-head Badminton and Table Tennis scheduled for August.
