FORMER QUEENS Deacons and Chargers made poor starts to the 2017 Goddard Enterprises Limited senior knockouts when the new season served off on Sunday night at Oldbury, St Philip.
Deacons were stunned by Club United 25-14, 19-25, 21-25, 25-19, 9-15 while Chargers surged from two sets down to then lose in five to Carlton 16-25,
22-25, 25-22, 25-6, 11-15.
Those opening matches proved to be an ideal launch for the new points system, with Club and Carlton earning three points and Deacons and Chargers two.
Previously, Club and Carlton would have earned five points each for winning their matches and Deacons and Chargers would have gained two each for winning two sets. (KB)
