BUCS Championship Qualification Match 

Blues 0-3 Nottingham University (6-25, 12-25, 15-25)
Manor Community College, 22/10/2008


With nine players at the first home match of the season and a strong starting line-up, the Blues saw that the Nottingham team was a much tougher opponent than the Oxford Brookes team from the previous week. Easily dominated in the first set, the Cambridge passing needed improving and the Blues struggled to get anything near the setter. A number of unforced errors saw the margin widen to a very large lead for the visitors. The second set started more promisingly after a rotation glitch at the beginning and the Cambridge team were in contention at the halfway point. Unfortunately the Nottingham team were still able to draw away with ease with two long serve runs. Team changes and timeouts didnt really influence the flow of play, and although the Blues had moments of competitiveness they never really gained their full potential.
