2009/10 Champions

The EDVA winter league season concluded last Sunday with the First and Second Division playoffs at Riverside. The first game was contested between Division One rivals Torexe Buzzards and Taunton Thunder. Torexe got off to an early lead thanks to the accurate serving of Dennis Stortenbecker. Despite a strong comeback by Taunton, Torexe were able to take the first set by a score of 25 to 21.

Torexe dominated the second set, winning 25-14 but the third set was much tighter and both teams were neck and neck throughout the set. However, Torexe took the set by the slimmest of margins to win the game by 25 to 23 and the match by three sets to love.

For his consistent play throughout the match, Nick Maye was awarded player of the game for Torexe Buzzards, while Don Johnson won the accolade for the Taunton side.

In the Division Twoplayoff between Exeter College and WVC Vikings the game was evenly matched through the first half of the first set before the college surged ahead to take the set 25-19.

Set two was a tense affair with both teams trading points throughout the set. The college side eventually inched ahead to take the set 25-22 and to take a commanding two-love lead in the match.

Winning the second set gave the College a vital boost and they seized the opportunity to take a 9-4 lead in the third set. They held their lead and even extended it to take the third set by 25-18 and so win the match.

For consistent setting throughout the game, Matt Dowling (College) and Sam Curtis (Vikings) were awarded Players of the Game.

All-in-all, a fitting end to a season, which was enjoyed by a large number of players. The organisers would like to thank the match officials and other individuals who helped make this such a successful and entertaining event.
