Bryden’s Rockets remain the only unbeaten women’s team after inflicting a straight sets whipping on TeleBarbados Sentry Brokers Deacons when the Cooperators General Insurance volleyball knockout continued at the Wildey Gym Sunday night.
Playing a simple strategy of digging every ball that Deacons actually got over the net, Rockets’ setter Andrea Flores then put up the ball for six-footer Anicia Wood and Shari Matthews to bomb Deacons 25-17, 25-18, 25-18.
While Katrina Wickham and Lisa Austin occasionally scored some kills, with Wood being dominant in blocking, rookie Nicola Greaves showed Deacons how to play ground defence.
Even so, Deacons, packing the tallest and biggest players in the league, battled among themselves to see who could play the worst in attack and defence. Coaches Andrew Culpepper and Elwyn Oxley would hardly have been pleased as they rotated the likes of Julia Lewis, Annette Chapman and Mona Crawford with the hope that someone would fire consistently.Please read the full story in today’s DAILY NATION, or in the eNATION edition.
