19:06 – The Battle of the Bands has ended now and The Herring will recap the highlights. The lineup began with UCTilburg, followed by LUC The Hague, UCG, UCU, UCR, UCM, and AUC. Oerknal was packed with an audience, mostly sat on the floor. When LUC The Hague urged spectators to stand and dance, UCSRN board members firmly requested the audience to remain seated. UCR’s performance seemed to be the crowd favourite. They informed the audience that they had received permission for audience members in the sides of Oerknal to be able to stand. Tourney-goers now patiently await the highly anticipated dance competition, featuring a mascot special and prize ceremony.

17:45 – In a stunning game, the football boys team triumphed with a score of 15-2, but despite their outstanding display, they were eliminated from the tournament.
