2014 Cup Competition

It was another excellent day of volleyball action in the anual EDVA Mixed Tournament. This year was a sell-out and it was excellent to see some 90 players from across our region packing out the sportshall competing for all three titles on offer, in the Cup, Plate and Bowl competitions.

2014 Cup Final Exeter Storm v WVC Raptors

The day started with all teams competing in two pools, PMVC Pocket Rockets and Torexe Hunters topped Pool 1, with Exeter Storm and WVC Raptors topping Pool 2.  Raptors battled hard to take a close fought match over the unbeaten Pocket Rockets 22 – 19 and Storm’s came out top against Hunters 26-18 to set up the final between the two winners.

Exeter Storm, playing many of their U18 Juniors who competed in Kettering the day before in the National U18 Grand Prix, still found enough energy left at the end of the day to bring an end to Div 2 Raptors excellent run through the competition and take the Cup title.
