Chargers head class
Knockout champions Chargers’ men and women moved to the top of the Goddards Division One volleyball league with consummate ease when the action continued on Wednesday night at the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex.
Despite purposely fielding a below-strength team, Chargers men hammered Sunpower Foundation United in straight sets, 25-10, 25-20, 25-19, to move to a 2-0 record and a maximum ten points.
Chargers share the lead and a similar record with RBC/RBTT Deacons and O-Aces.
Deacons’ victory on Wednesday night was the easiest as the BNB Juniors suffered a default loss with some of their Coleridge & Parry players being held up in a Super Centre Schools’ match by Foundation at the Netball Stadium.
The Juniors remain in the cellar with no points, while their neighbours are Foundation United who have only two points after three losses.
After being dismissed easily by Chargers in the first set, Foundation had looked challenging with a second set lead of 14-8. But, with Dale Addison playing a dominant role of attacker and Foundation assuming the meek persona of lambs, the proverbial slaughter was inevitable.
Chargers women wasted no time with Safe Security Carlton, pounding the winless team 25-16, 25-13, 25-16, to move to a maximum 15 points from three victories.
Sentry Insurance Brokers Deacons and the Rockets hold similar records.
The Rockets avenged their Knockout semi-final loss to Warrens to condemn the losing Knockout finalists to a dismal report of two points from three losses.
With former national player Krystenella Allain returning to competition for the Rockets, they rallied from a first-set loss to blast Warrens 17-25, 25-20, 25-12, 25-12.
Carlton are on two points after four losses, ahead of Plus the Club who are without a point after three games.
