THE TWO MOST successful local volleyball teams Deacons and defending champions Chargers will battle for the Goddard Enterprises Limited senior men’s volleyball knockout crown on Sunday.
Another sequel to the great rivalry between those two was scripted with contrasting victories in the semi-finals, which were played at Oldbury, St Philip on Monday night.
Deacons squeezed out a four sets victory against Foundation United 22-25, 25-20, 25-20, 25-23, while Chargers blew past Cawmere 25-15, 25-23, 25-22.
Deacons seemed in danger against the lesser rated Foundation United although their young guns of Ahkeem Mayers, Akeel Oxley, Kyle Browne and Akeil Williams had piloted them to an early advantage of 18-14 while holding off Foundation’s Darien Seale, Paul Doughty, Shamar Bishop and Chad Callender.
