Cawmere keep title hopes alive
CAWMERE RETURNED TO the hunt for their first senior Goddard Enterprises Limited volleyball knockout crown by crushing former champions Progressive in straight sets when the action continued at Oldbury, St Philip, on Sunday night.
Southpaw Shawn Simpson, Raffeal Lovell and Jamaican Robert Andrews were brutal in attack, pounding Progressive 25-16, 25-17, 25-23. In the previous game, Andrews was horrible in offence in a contest which saw Deacons handing Cawmere their first loss for the season.
Andrews seemingly passed the baton to fellow Jamaican Mark Lewis, who started in his normal explosive style before making a number of serving and attacking errors. However, setter Ramon Blades strategically went to Simpson, Lovell and Andrews to stop every counter by Progressive.
Andrews, who normally blasts a spike serve into his opponents’ court and then rips the next serve into the net or the wall, was on point, particularly in the second set, where he took charge at 15-14 to fire Cawmere to 22-14 with some guided missiles. (KB)
