Carlton men win, Rockets crash
Carlton men won their first game of the 2010 season but Rockets women could not follow suit when the Co-operators General Insurance Junior Volleyball Knockouts continued at Lodge Hill on Thursday night.
Carlton found easy prey in the Combined Schools dismissing them 25-14, 25-18, to ease the club to one win in six matches, but the Rockets dropped to 0-4 after going down to home team Powerade The Club 16-25, 25-8, 7-15.
Some strong serving by Heather Holder nullified The Club’s first set win as they were destroyed in the second set. However, true to form, the Rockets slid to 2-10, in the decider before a flurry of points brought them back to 7-10, which was as far as they reached.
At Hill Road, the home team Chargers, playing in spanking new uniforms, split two matches as their women were beaten by Deacons in straight sets 14-25, 20-25. Chargers men needed to battle from one set down to halt Foundation United 21-25, 25-12, 15-13. (KB)
