21:14 21:17 21:14

Hosts overcome depleted visitors
Still on course for the divisional title, Onyx were in determined mood throughout this match and proved rather too strong for the their visitors who, although playing well in spells, were unable to produce enough to deny their hosts the victory.

Onyx began with a flourish, quickly 3:0, then 6:1 and 9:3 ahead. Tuskers then settled and played well to prevent the advantage from getting too big and, at the end of the set, saving two set points. In the second, Onyx did all their damage during a single spell of serving by Edouard Regnier-Laurent in which they took their score from 1:all to 6:1. As in the first set, Tuskers settled and competed strongly. Indeed, they eventually closed to 18:17 and threatened to extend the evening but, service regained, steady nerves and accurate serving by Janusz Piatek saw them home. Onyx then made steady progress through the third set: 11:9, 15:11, 19:13 . . .Tuskers managed one more point before Onyx scored two and claimed victory.

Onyx will finish their season against Flaming Six Crusaders at Battersea Sports Centre on Sunday. One place below them in the table, their opponents have produced a few surprises during the season. It should be some game, one Onyx have to win to claim the title..
