Women's Div. 2 A : SQUAD chase Giants
Posted by Media Team on 2019/1/5 17:26:51 (86 reads)

End of season review, Division 2A (Women’s London Volleyball League)
Divas and Cubs in pursuit
Three Giant's teams' success created an article providing a sort of report already. Nevertheless, there is interesting news of other teams in the division, especially fourth placed challenger, mirroring Division 1A where SQUAD's second team has lost only once.

However, they have played only four games, one fewer than most of the teams and two fewer than Giants whom they have not yet faced. Their loss was to Flaming Six Comets, away in mid November with the battling score 21:5 22:20 25:23. The team then went on to beat Divas at home an even closer 21:18 21:19 24:22 and VPS Stars away 10:21 12:21 14:21.

Second in the table are Dynamo Divas, already beaten by Giants, who went on to overcome Lionhearts Cubs at home 21:13 21:12 21:19 and Richmond 22:20 21:12 17:21 21:16 before an away game against SQUAD 2 who beat them in a most exciting 21:18 21:19 24:22.

That result took them to a point below Lionhearts Cubs who had to face Divas and Giants. both away, in successive games, and went on to win successive games at home beating VPS Stars 21:15 21:8 21:16 and Pin Lon Lady Spikers 21:7 21:3 11:21 21:16.

Comets and Richmond are equal on points in fifth and sixth positions but when they met at Kingston Arena the home side won a superbly competitive encounter 18:21 21:19 17:21 21:12 17:15. The return match is scheduled for 2nd March at Lambeth Academy and should attract a surprising large crowd for a second division game. That said, Richmond had lost to Pin Lon Spikers in an equally well contested match, also at Kingston Arena, 21:7 14:21 14:21 21:8 7:15 in their first game of the season. Most recently they have beaten VPS Stars in three sets to set themselves up for the second part of the season.

That defeat of Richmond has been Pin Lon's only success of the season although it suggests they must be considered a danger when they return to court on 20th January but their scheduled opponent is Richmond so there will be loads for both sides to play for. VPS Stars, without a victory so far, prop up the table.

Meanwhile, Giants will be striving to say on top as competition resumes.
