Division 1

TOREXE Hunters came away with a 5-0 victory over Torexe Phantoms.

The Hunters won the first set 25-17, with good serving from Joel Stevens and play-making from Michele Guidolin.

Despite some good work from the Phantom's Justin Walton, the Hunter's won the second set 25-14.

The third set was won by the same scoreline, while the fourth set saw the Phantoms change up their game play considerably.

Some great rallies and attacking from Andrew Wagner and Tom Stenner-Evans in the front court continually tested the Hunters defence.

But the Hunters fought back and took the set 25-18. The fifth set saw the Hunters refocus and win comfortably 15-4. Player-of-the-match was Victor Ambrosine for the Hunters.

WVC Cardinals only narrowly beat PMVC Pocket Rockets 3-2.

Plymouth started the match well and took the first set.

They looked to be on their way to winning the second set, until a Cardinals fightback saw them draw level and then take a 2-1 lead by winning the third set.

Plymouth levelled it up again but the Cardinals snatched the victory with a final set win.

Jez Bennet was the Cardinals' man of the match.

Torexe Hunters came away with a 4-1 victory in their match against Kirton, but the scoreline slightly flattered the home side as the match was keenly contested.

The Hunters won the first three sets, but there was little difference in the points scoring with Torexe winning 26-24, 25-23 and 25-19.

Kirton hit back and won the fourth 25-21, but the Hunters won the final set 15-11 to give the overall scoreline an unbalanced look.

Daniel Kohn was the Hunters' man of the match.

Division 2

This was a very good performance by Spitfires, who caused Jaguars a lot of problems.

The pressure showed with far too many unforced errors being made throughout the match. The first two sets were won by the Jaguars but they were far from convincing.

The third set rightly went to the Spitfires who kept their noses in front throughout.

Heartened by this win, they continued to exert pressure but the Jaguars rallied in the final set and won it fairly comfortably.

Player of the match honours went to Ewa Kubika from Spitfires and Brandon Wong from Jaguars.
