OVER THE MOON, JOHN

Nottingham University retained the ICE inter-varsity sports trophy by the narrowest of margins this month. Going into the final event, basketball, second-placed Loughbrough needed to beat Trent, in third, by 35 points to snatch the title.

But at the final whistle the score stood at 33-0, leaving Loughbrough just one basket short of glory. Nottingham had earlier established a lead by stealing the five-a-side football with two late goals, coming from 4-3 down to beat Trent 53 in the final. Loughborough closed the gap by picking up points in the squash and badminton singles, but Nottingham took the doubles to restore their lead. Refusing to buckle, Loughborough took maximum points in the netball, setting up the nail-biting finish.

In all 120 students competed in the ICE and Carillion sponsored event, held at Nottingham University.
