The Asteroids consisting of Anji, Serena, Mel, Matt, Chessie and Neil lost 25-7 25-15 25-21 to Swinton Engineers this evening. In losing the final set to 21, the Asteroids did at least equal the best score achieved by the Meteorites at Swinton. MVP was Neil.
After some initial concern in the first set, there was a straight forward win for the Meteorites against Devizes Firkins at Lavington School tonight.
With only give off the Meteorites available, Serena was brought into the team as a setter. In the first set the Meteorites failed to settle into any rhythm and found themselves 22-20 but sorted themselves out in a time-out to win 23-25.
The following two sets were much crisper with a tactical adjustment of the back-court setter staying further back, which together with a good ruin of serves from MVP Chris ensured the second set was won for the loss of nine points. The third set was equally decisive with the Meteorites finishing off with a 23-25 9-25 13-25 victory.
The team was Neil, Jack, Chris, Serena, Stuart and Lukasz.
