Lionhearts Pride lost to Fireball (Men’s D2B - London Volleyball League)
14:21 14:21 13:21
Top place regained
After their surprise defeat by the youngsters of EBC Greenhouse the previous afternoon,
Fireball bounced back and showed no mercy as they overcame their hosts in Bethnal Green.

After winning the opening rally and then going 1:4 in front, they imposed themselves on proceedings in racing to 2:11 before relaxing a little. Lionhearts were able to reduce the deficit by a couple of points but they never looked like taking the set.

0:4, 2:6, 4:10, 5:15. They made another impressive start to the second set before relaxing once again, clearly confident that they had the mastery of Lionhearts even though they played very well in closing the gap to 10:15 and, after falling a bit further behind again, saving three set points.

The pattern was remarkably similar in the third set. After a point apiece, Fireball advanced to 1:4 2:8 and 3:15 before mounting a challenge of sorts and winning six of the last nine rallies of the match. Pride was intact but Fireball the victors.

K S Osemka 2 will have breathed a sigh of relief yesterday but they still have to complete their fixtures.
