This Weekends Match Report

Division One

Kings 3 v. Kirton 2

First game of the season for both teams and played very well. King’s had a younger team but Kirton had the experience. Good team spirit and atmosphere between the two teams.

Taunton 2 v Torexe Hunters 3

A closely fought first set with Torexe Hunters taking it 25-20. Taunton hit back in the second set with a run of points mid-set giving them a commanding lead which they held the end 25-15.

In the third set neither team could get a solid run of points until the end of the set when Torexe Hunters finished off in style with a run of 5 points to take the set 25-19.

The fourth set again was a close one with some great blocking of Torexe Hunters big hitter Greg Jankowski allowing Taunton to level the match two sets all, taking it 28-26. With both teams now thinking they could take the match, Torexe Hunters took the early lead and held on to it with some final winning cross court hits taking the set 15-12.

An enjoyable first game to the season with Taunton’s Don Johnson taking man of the match and Hunters Gosia for her digging.

Division Two

Birdmen 0 v Torexe Jaguars 5

A great game to start the season, with the first four sets off as very close, with very strong serving from the Birdmen testing out the Jaguars receiving line up. Great hitting from Fletcher, matched by powerful blocking from Joel Stevens, created an excellent duel at the net between the two players of the match Fletcher (from Birdmen) and Joel Stevens (from Torexe Jaguars). Overall experience won the day with Jaguars varying the attacks and not allowing Birdmen to get into any rhythm.

Torexe Vulcans 2 v. Exeter Uni Three 3

Not a bad start to the new season for Torexe Vulcans welcoming Aggie, Sophie and John to the team to give some tough opposition to Exeter Uni 3. A few points lost while Vulcans settled into the game gave away the first sets but in true Torexe fighting style Vulcans won the next two sets 25-15 and 25-21 with hard hitting and defiant blocking. However great serving and consistent play won the Uni the final set and the match. Player of the Match awarded to Vascotto for Uni 3 and to Aggie Kowslowska for Torexe Vulcans.
