At last, Deacons take volley crown
IT MAY HAVE taken nearly five months more than expected, but Flow Deacons finally won the marathon Goddard Enterprises Limited Division 1 volleyball league title on Monday night at the Wildey Gym.
A number of activities had seen the league running from one year into the next.
Deacons defeated the 2015 champions Chargers 25-20, 25-20, 20-25, 25-21 to end the season with a 9-1 record and 46 points.
Chargers needed to defeat Deacons in four sets or less to pip them for the crown.
However, the absence of big men Mark Lewis and Romel Agard suggested that Chargers would have needed a miracle to stop Deacons from winning their record 19th league crown.
