Golden Eagles downed in five sets
Bexley's Division One team Besty Boys 1 have pocketed another win, this time against one of very well and longest established clubs in London, Malory Golden Eagles.

Malory started well pulling out a lead by winning the first two sets by a marginal 21:18 and 22:20 points in sets 1 and 2. But Besty Boys kept their focus on the game knowing that this game would need to be turned around into a five set match hence it was also limited by time (usual practice in London halls getting booked for minimum 2hrs, that includes 20min warm-up). Third set Boys have started with significant lead and managed to dominate the game on court attacking from all possible angles, never forgetting that good attack always starts from the very first line of defence. And has to be said, they mastered it very well with strong line of our specialist Blockers: Captain Lewis Howel, Pasha Grisenkovs (Middles), Ghena Coroi, Juris Solovjevs and Stoyko Stanchev as Outside players, our very special Setter Kosta Petkov and his Opposite Mario Stanchev did absolute miracles through their defensive position, and not forgetting our very best Libero Chandra Pun picking up anything else what still got through the first line of defence. As result, third set finished 21:14 taken by Besty Boys. Fourth set, Boys were seemingly dominating in every part of court establishing full control in the Middle section, and enjoyed earning points from opposition mistakes, making sure we minimise them on our side. The tandem of Kosta and Mario in Opposite, endless defensive shield from Pasha and Lewis and pipe attack from Ghena have dealt confidently with pulling strong win in this set. 21:14.

Fifth set started little scrappy allowing the Eagles to pull away with 4:0 lead, but this time (perhaps, more fortunately for Besty Boys) it wasn’t theirs to take as Boys have found that missing oomph drive and turned the game to complete it their way as 2hr time slot ran out at confident score 11:4.
Great solid 3:2 win gents! Well proud of our team showing high spirit, drive and absolute determination on the away team’s court.

Go Bexley!
