The team’s next quarter-final match will be broadcast in the coming weeks.
The University of Liverpool’s University Challenge team suffered a setback after losing a quarter-final match to St Peter’s College Oxford, who beat the Liverpool team 245 points to 100 points.
The team – Declan Crew, Ben Mawdsley, Jem Davis and Hugh Hiscock – need to win two out of three quarter-final matches to go through to the semi-finals. Having already won one quarter-final match against Bristol, they could still go through to the semi-finals if they win their next match.
Hugh said: “It was disappointing to lose against St Peter’s, Oxford but they were by far the best team we’ve come across yet. They were too fast on the buzzer for us!”
You can watch the team’s performance here.
The team shoud be congratulated for doing fantastically well: all four were real heroes.
Oxford sits nearly 30 places higher in the REF2014 overall THS league table and the UC Liverpool Team showed great ambition and punching well above this.
