Chargers still on track for double
Chargers are still on course for volleyball’s double crown.
Following an enforced break of two weeks due to the unavailability of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex, the battles for the Goddard’s Enterprises Division One league titles continued on Wednesday night.
Chargers men, who will clash with defending champions RBC/RBTT Deacons in a cup decider on Sunday, hardly got a warm-up against the winless BNB Juniors caning the lads 25-16, 25-14, 25-17.
On the other hand, Chargers’ women were surprisingly delayed by an inconsistent Toners. However, after dropping the first set, Chargers made the Toners pay for the affront by destroying them 21-25, 25-10, 25-11, 25-20. A number of liberal substitutions by Chargers allowed the Toners to gain some additional points in the fourth set.
There were no such generosities when Sentry Insurance Brokers Deacons met the winless Security Safe Carlton in the opening women’s match. Deacons crushed Carlton 25-13, 25-8, 25-6.
Carlton’s fortunes worsened in the third set, which saw a collision between two of their players, Kandia Shorey and Phillipa Puckerin.
A motionless Shorey had to be removed by ambulance personnel from the court and taken away for treatment.
The clash between the deposed knockout champions Progressive and Sunpower Foundation United followed the usual script of Foundation looking challenging but then fading: 21-25, 21-25, 24-26.
