Oxford University win Portland Bowl (April 2021)
Oxford University win Portland Bowl (April 2021)

The Portland Bowl Semifinals and Final took place on RealBridge this weekend.

In the semifinals, Oxford A beat Imperial and Cambridge B beat Southampton B. In the third place playoff, Imperial beat Southampton B by 75-43. In the final, after a very close match where there was not much between the two evenly matched teams, Oxford A beat Cambridge B by 128-115.

This is Oxford’s first win since 2011; Cambridge had won 6 out of the previous 7 tournaments before this year.

The victorious Oxford team was Yining Yang (captain), Lawrence Wang, Sam Anoyrkatis & Ewa Wieczorek, and they were virtually presented with the trophy on Zoom by Christopher Kemp, Chairman of the Portland Club, whose continued support of the event is very much appreciated.
