Club United clobber Carlton

Young national player Mya Evelyn and middle Nikita Wickham put on an impressive display of spiking to lead Club United to their first win of the season when the Goddard Enterprises Limited Senior Volleyball Knockout Competition continued on Monday night at the Wildey Gym.
With her fearless approach, Parkinson Memorial student Evelyn blasted her team to a 25-22, 25-12, 25-21 victory, which condemned Carlton to their second successive loss. 
Setter Racquel Raizman, continuing to improve in her craft, ran the centre attack well for Wickham to thunder the ball repeatedly into Carlton’s court.
Carlton played their usual game of allowing their opponents big leads and then trying to get back into the match.
That ploy seemed to be working in the first set where Carlton surged from 6-16 to lock the scores from 18 up to 22 before fading to lose the set.
After a no-contest second set where Carlton were undone by great serving by Club, six-footer Kayla James almost became a veritable wall for Carlton to offer a serious challenge. However, poor passing and counter-attack saw Carlton struggling to match their opponents with points.
The situation appeared to have been made worse when setter Janelle Morris aggravated a back injury and had to leave the court at 11-17. However, reserve setter Natasha Boyce was able to motivate her team and the blocking of James saw Carlton locking the scores at 21 before a clutch of unforced errors doomed them to another loss.
Former queens Toners also suffered their second loss in a row while giving Pan American International Insurance Corporation Warrens their second win of the new season, 25-13, 14-25, 25-23, 25-14.
The men will take to the court for the first time tonight with the Juniors opposing Deacons at 6:30 and Cawmere clashing with Foundation in an all-schools battle at 8.
