Solent had beaten University of Birmingham 21:25 24:26 20:25 in the first round of the Cup and entered the Shield competition only after losing to Malory Eagles in the second round. However the tables were well and truly turned as a weekend of national finals for English volleyball got under way at ten o’clock on Saturday morning when they made the running early on and led 9:6 in the opening set. The university recovered well and Solent were looking dispirited as they ceded its loss.
