Dynasty lost to Fireball (Men’s D2B - London Volleyball League)
21:16 16:21 20:22 4:21
Lowest set score of season
For three sets this was a very competitive match and at the end of three sets the home side had won 57 rallies to the visitors' 59. The stage had been set for a thrilling finish.

Dynasty began with a bang. The first four rallies went their way, Ling Luan serving well and soon they had established a lead of 15:7 and Fireball had long used both their time-outs and made two substitutions. They then got to 17:9 and self-belief returned as they won four points on the trot. It was not enough to threaten the set but it at least showed a little promise.

That burst into evidence early in the second set when they raced from 1:2 to 2:9.Like their opponents in the preceding set, Dynasty recovered but only after they were behind 9:15 did they look dangerous. They closed to 13:15 but Marcelo Cordova took a time-out at that juncture and calmed Fireball anxieties and they duly levelled the score.

Fireball were never actually behind in the close third set but the teams played a ding-dong battle with Dynasty drawing level on several occasions, finally at 20:all. Then Fireball grabbed side-out, Leonado Blonda served accurately and they were a set ahead.

Then in the fourth set Fireball ran riot. From 0:15 Dynasty hearts were no longer in the game.
