Warrens still on winning run
DEFENDING CHAMPIONS Pan American International Insurance Warrens women extended their unbeaten run from 2016 when the Goddard Enterprises Limited Senior Volleyball Knockouts continued on Monday night.
Playing at the Kensington Bond, Warrens were tottering against the previously unbeaten Burger King Clapham Toners before winning 25-21, 22-25, 17-25, 25-23, 15-13. At one stage it looked as if young guns Aaliyah Durant and Ashley Jordan would have delivered the knockout punch for Toners.
After Warrens grabbed the first set, they surged from 1-7 and 11-18 in the second to threaten Toners at 21-23 thanks to a couple of aces from Barbados’ netball captain Rhe-Ann Niles and panic from Toners. But a cruncher from Jordan and an ace serve evened the contest.
Warrens then ended their experiment of giving court time to reserve setter Danielle Callender, who heads off to North America for the next four years, by calling on their “big six” to pull the game back. (KB)
