Chargers still in  the hunt

Social Share

It was a case of new year, same league, same teams and same results when the 2010 division one volleyball league resumed after a month’s break  on Wednesday night at the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex.
The varied disruptions including the Yuletide season seemed to have had little effect on the teams, as the results ended as expected with Chargers maintaining their faint hopes of overhauling defending champions, RBTT Deacons.  
Chargers were extended by Cawmere but won in five sets, 25-23, 25-17, 15-25, 21-25, 15-10.  
Shawn Simpson and Wendell Beckles scored some critical shots for Cawmere who begun the season with a shock win over Deacons.  
However, setter Dale Addison once again ensured that his hot and cold attackers of Nicholas Matthias, Gregory Burke, Damien Danzell and Dwayne Howell generated heat at the right time.
Chargers, who lost to Deacons and Sunpower Foundation United, have moved to 4-2 and 23 points, four less than Deacons. Cawmere are now 3-3 with 17 points, with newboys O-Aces on 14. 
On Wednesday night, Foundation United also took the scenic route by overcoming O-Aces
20-25, 25-19, 26-28, 25-19, 15-9, with the highly animated Nate Williams, the underrated Mark Padmore and setter Alain London blunting the keen play from the impressive O-Aces.  
In their first stint in division one, O-Aces have caused a lot of worries for the more experienced teams.
The women’s action saw the Rockets keeping 8000 Inc. Carlton winless, beating them 25-18, 27-25, 25-7.  
However,  Sentry Insurance Brokers Deacons remained in the hunt by stopping British American Insurance Jackson, 25-21, 15-25, 25-22, 25-23.
Deacons are on 21 points, four behind Chargers’ women while the Rockets and Jackson both have 16 points, although Jackson have suffered two losses to the Rockets’ one.  
A struggling Carefree Toners have only seven points while Carlton and the team that they spawned, Plus The Club, are in the cellar with one point each. (KB)
