The Winchester Eagles Ladies Team had an amazing day at HVA today, bringing home three 2-0 victories, bringing them one step closer to SEVA.
The first game, against Guernsey Ladies, was the toughest. Guernsey is a team that had done very well at HVA last season and the Eagles were very keen to beat them. Our Ladies started very strong, with a series of killer serves from Liz that took them to 8-0. The Guernsey side was never able to recover from that. The Eagles kept the pressure on with more strong serves from all players and hard hits from the middle and the wings and the set was soon over.
The second set saw the Eagles dominating again and allowed coach Robin to bring in more players, to make use of a 12-strong squad. Our setter Fab worked very hard to keep all the hitters busy and the Eagles won the game 2-0.
After reffing a very tight game – SVC vs Guernsey Ladies, the Eagles knew that their next game versus SVC was going to be challenging too, as SVC was fielding quite a number of their NVL players.
At times, the Eagles found themselves under pressure against hard serves, but they responded well coming together as a team with a strong passing unit. They counter attacked with equally aggressive serves and relentless hits from both front and backcourt. There were some very good rallies with great play on both sides, but the Eagles came on top thanks to their superior skills and determination.
The last game against South Hants was an easier one, which gave Robin the chance to try players in different positions and make a lot of substitutions. Our youngest players proved very resilient when put under pressure and the Eagles brought home another 2-0 victory.
An awesome day of volleyball for the Eagles. Well played everyone. A huge THANK YOU to our coach Robin who, once again, did a brilliant job.
