Corpus in action against Catzcorpuschristifc/Instagram

The return of football for Lent term saw 18 games played across all six divisions to kick off the new calendar year in style. With 85 goals scored there was plenty of excitement and plenty of action.

One of the largest winning margins of the weekend saw Fitzwilliam I demolish Robison I 8-1; Fitz capitalised on a ropey Robinson defence who have been leaking goals all season to record a drubbing and keep their opponents one place above the foot of the table. Notable performances here came from Lumi Kanwei who got a hat-trick, and Joe Young who registered a massive six assists. With Churchill’s game against Trinity being postponed this leaves Fitzwilliam three points clear at the top of Division 1 with a healthy goal difference and their eyes fixed firmly on retaining their winners medals. 

Elsewhere in Division 1 Homerton hosted a depleted Queens side and proceeded to take full advantage, coming out 4-2 winners. Two goals each for James Hayes and Shaun Matthews, as well as a man of the match performance from centre midfielder Max Asseily, were key in a result that sees Homerton leapfrog Queens into third place. Queens have now lost two on the trot and will need some serious performances to get back in a title race they are now four points adrift of. A 2-0 victory for Caius against Sidney Sussex and a 1-1 draw between Downing and St John's closed out Division 1 for the weekend. 

The top three teams in Division 2 all won their games convincingly. Pembroke remain at the top of the league and are current favourites for promotion after a resounding 4-0 win against Emma, but will have to maintain a gaze over their shoulder at Corpus Christi and Trinity Hall who are both in fine form and are within touching distance of the leaders.
