Double win at SADVA for the Ladies
Last night the Winchester Eagles Ladies played their first two games of the 2022-23 SADVA League. The Eagles got to Woodlands with a strong ten-player team, giving coach Robin lots of options.
In their first game against Salisbury, the Eagles dominated the game. After a hesitant start, the team found its stride and secured the first set 21-11.
In the second set, the Eagles’ serves were just too strong for the opposition and the Eagles soon gained a very big lead, giving coach Robin the chance to experiment and try players in new positions. The set finished 21-2 to the Eagles. MVP went to Grace, who had her debut game with the team and proved an excellent middle player.
The second game was against SVC, a much stronger side with some very good servers. The Eagles, however, stepped up their game, neutralising the opposition’s aggressive serves with a stable and disciplined passing unit.
Strong serves and attacks from the Eagles let them secure the first set 21-15. In the second set, the Eagles set the pace and totally dominated the game, finishing the set 21-11. MVP went to Tania, who had her own devoted fun club to support her.
Very well done to our young new players, who performed extremely well even when coming on mid-set.
A great start of the season for the Ladies, with two decisive 2-0 wins.
The evening ended with the customary celebrations at the pub. A huge thank you to coach Robin, who managed the team so well. Well played everyone.
