Dynasty beat Giants 2 (Men’s D2B - London Volleyball League)
19:21 21:7 23:21 21:15

Second set comeback
Dynasty secured their second win of the season after losing the opening set against Giants to go top of the table, albeit probably for a short stay given the early stage of the season.

Peckham enjoyed a great first set, Giants initially looking the stronger side as they moved 3:6 in front but a time-out at that point put some steel into the home side and they struck back so strongly they took the lead at 7:6. The run of points halted, play was even with first Dynasty then Giants taking a small lead until, at 19:all, Dynasty proving the more composed.

Giants' composure then virtually disappeared as Dynasty raced to 10:2 with some excellent volleyball in which Natthavut Kandthong particularly impressed. and from 17:7 Giants put up little resistance. Coach Anestic Kales worked on them as they changed ends and the visitors were back on form for an excellent third set. Dynasty had started the stronger, winning the first four rallies and then three of the next five but Giants battled back into contention and eventually took the lead at 17:18 and moved on to 17:19 despite a time-out at 17:16. Eventually Dynasty confidence returned while Giants tensed a bit and the teams were even again at 19:all and remained locked to 21:all as Dynasty grabbed service and Steve Leung held his nerve with two good serves each contributing to a successful rally.

It was 10:all in the fourth before Dynasty eventually got on top when they raced to 15:10 and 19:11 with Natthavut again impressive and, while Giants recovered to 19:15, they had left themselves a bit too much to do and, having lost service, were promptly polished off.
