Men's Div. 2 B : Fireball need five sets against EBC Greenhouse
Posted by Douglas Barr-Hamilton on 2015/2/24 15:40:00 (60 reads)

Fireball beat EBC Greenhouse (Men’s D2B - London Volleyball League)
21:25 25:21 25:23 19:25 15:10

Narrow win leads to the top
We don't normally name the scorer in our reports but thanks to Vanderlei Silva who was plucked from the crowd to help ref Patricia Cassidy when the official scorer failed to arrive. Ticks and crosses on the document suggest the details of the play were being watched closely but, sadly for my purposes, they give no indication of how play went. But thanks are most certainly due. The help ensured a wonderful match.

Men's Div. 2 B : Crusaders extinguish Fireball

Fireball lost to Flaming Six Crusaders(Men’s D2B - London Volleyball League)
20:25 25:17 25:19 17:25 12:15

Five set form-book upset
After going a couple of points behind immediately at the start of the match, Flaming Six Crusaders surprised their hosts, belying their position lower in the league table. Quickly 5:8 ahead, they had seized the initiative and refused to let it drop in a pulsating period of play. Then Fireball settled and rather coasted through the next two sets after racing from 6-all to 13:7 in the second and from 2-all to 9:2 in the third, never looking as though they would relinquish the lead.

Experience tells in Wapping
At times, especially in the second set, the grammar school played very well but the older, more experienced players from upstream on the Thames were able to see them off.
