Women's Premier : East win takes Lionhearts equal first

Lionhearts East beat Inter, 21:14 17:21 21:12 15:21 15:10, Women's Premier Division (London Volleyball League)
Inter challenge from beginning to end
Bethnal Green has staged loads of close exciting matches and this one was certainly among the best of them as one team and then the other gained the upper hand and, in the end, the home side triumphed.

It had looked relatively comfortable for East in the first side and Inter looked to have not quite gained their rhythm but the loss of the set galvanised them into playing very well indeed and denying their host the chance of keeping in front as the score-board moved to one set all.
Sadly, they failed to maintain their form in the third and went down badly as East played in a determined fashion only for East, in turn, to lose form in the fourth in which Inter, once in front, again played some excellent volleyball. So to a fifth set to decide where the league points went. It was to be Lionhearts' evening.
