Volleyball-Rainbow move to third, Saints lose out


Rainbow United met Santa West in the only women’s division one match played last weekend and were looking to get a win to move up the table.

It was an easy match for them as they won 3-0 (25-20, 25-17, 25-12) after one hour 41 minutes of play to move up to third place in the league standings on 15 points.

Boasting the same number of points – 16 – as Cascade, Friends lead the table on set difference – +11 (17 for and 6 against) compared to Cascade’s +10 (15 for and 5 against).

In the Kokonet women’s division two league, it was Saints United who went down against Port Glaud. The first two sets were very even with the teams winning one apiece. It was in the third and fourth sets that Port Glaud pressed on the accelerator to win the match on a 3-1 (25-22, 22-25, 25-12, 25-6) score in two hours 8 minutes.

The win has helped Port Glaud move to second place with 22 points, four behind Praslin-based Saints who remain on top despite the loss with 26 points (8 wins and 2 defeats in 10 games).
In other matches, Ephelia Resort claimed their third win of the season on a 3-1 (25-16, 25-22, 19-25, 25-17) score against Island Girls after two hours seven minutes of play and St Louis Bombers had less work to do against Cadettes, finishing the job in 56 minutes and on a 3-0 (25-18, 25-12, 25-18) score.

The win did not change much for either team as Cadettes remain rooted to the bottom and the Bombers are one place above them.

The only men’s division two match played was between Airwaves and Juniors. The encounter went for almost two hours but Airwaves finally managed to grab a 3-1 (22-25, 25-22, 25-21, 25-17) win after coming from a set down. 

Airwaves are now third after this victory with 14 points (two wins and six defeats).
The league leaders are GAP Boyz who have won all their six matches.
