Wapping Wildcats 1 beat Fireball (Men’s D2 East - London Volleyball League)
26:24 25:16 25:20
Top Wildcats finally secure
Fireball caught Wildcats cold when visiting their Whitechapel lair on 5th December and after three rallies were three points ahead. It couldn't last of course but it gave them tremendous confidence and they sailed out to 3:7 when David Urena decided an early timeout was essential. He settled his players and they gradually reduced the gap and forced Kristina Szvetniyk to talk to her players at 11:12. Nerves calmed but supremacy not restored, the rest of the set produced a titanic struggle. Wildcats battled to win a rally on service to make it 24:23 and, with a collective sigh of relief, again at 25:24 to earn that vital 26th point.
