Deacons women on the ball
Queens Flow Sentry Brokers Deacons marched to a maximum 30 points from a sterling 6-0 record by thumping Club United 25-20, 25-23, 25-22 when the Goddard Enterprises Limited Division 1 volleyball league continued with round two action on Monday night at the Wildey Gym.
Brydens Rockets kept their chances alive by coming from a set down to stop Carlton 26-28, 25-13, 25-15, 25-15. Shari Matthews and Katrina Wickham, fuelled by sensible setting from young Danielle Callender squashed any hopes of an upset from the inconsistent Carlton.
The Rockets are on 27 points after winning five of their seven matches played so far. Club have 13 points from 2-5 while Carlton have seven points after winning just one of six matches.
Men’s champions Chargers and contenders Gourmet Xpress Progressive maintained their pursuit of the title in contrasting styles on Monday night.
After a fierce first set Chargers disposed of the cellar occupants Foundation United 27-25, 25-18, 25-16.
Progressive scored a default win over Cawmere after Cawmere turned up with just six players and the officials deemed that one of the players was not wearing the appropriate uniform.
Cawmere had welcomed back Caribbean Best Opposite Shawn Simpson from holiday but the officials were less welcoming in declaring that Simpson’s pants were not part of the uniform.
Chargers have retaken the lead with 27 points from a 5-1 record while Progressive are second with 26 points from a similar 5-1 record. Deacons are third with 22 points from a 4-1 effort. Chargers had suffered their loss in their last game against Deacons while Deacons were beaten by Progressive, who in turn were beaten by Chargers.
One from that trio will take the league crown as Cawmere who are on 10 points following a 2-5 record are far off the pace.
The Juniors are two points better after a similar 2-5 performance. It will take a miracle for Foundation to escape the cellar after playing and losing seven games to hold a meagre three points. (KB)
