Men's Div. 2 B : Three teams chasing Giants

End of season review, Division 2B (Men’s London Volleyball League)
Galaxy appears closest
Some news of the season so far has already been published because of Giant's performance along with the club's other teams' success. All the same VPS Galaxy, Ernest Bevin, Southall and the other teams in this division have produced performances that will be of interest to all followers of London volleyball.

The strongest challenger is currently VPS Galaxy whose only loss was to Giants in four sets in the first game of the season. Since then they have gone from strength to strength. They beat Southall away a week later in three sets and went on to beat Ernest Bevin in four a week after that. They followed those with two three set wins at home to Wapping Cheetahs and at home to Thunderball.

Ernest Bevin and Southall have only played four games and each has a 50% record d leaving them in fourth and fifth positions with both teams having the same sets difference and the former enjoying the better points difference. These results allow Wapping Cheetahs to sit in third place over the mid season holiday with a one point lead. However, they were beaten in Southall in their last match before the break 21:15 21:15 18:21 21:16 and they have not yet played Ernest Bevin. That challenge comes on 11th January at their home venue of Britannia Leisure Centre.

Thunderball's only success has come in the unsatisfactory concession of their fixture by Pin Lon Spikers but, having taken a set off Greenhouse, Cheetahs and Giants, they will be hoping for better results in the coming weeks. When they have played, Pin Lon Spikers have taken a set of Ernest Bevin and pushed Southall to 21:15 21:15 21:11 so should not be underestimated when they get going.

The rest of the season should be interesting with the team to beat remaining Giants. Could it be VPS Galaxy on 13th January?
