This weekend saw the Phoenix volleyball nursery girls register two victories in the u18 and u14 categories respectively. On Saturday, in a tense and tough match which lasted around two and a half hours, Phoenix beat FDL (Fleur de Lys) 3 sets to 2, with the scores in every set reflecting the balanced nature of the game (21-25, 25-10, 20-25, 25-20, 21-19). The game swung from one side to the other until the Phoenix girls managed to tip the scales in the fifth and last set with the crucial two-point advantage. This game was a test of the girls’ tenacity and growing maturity as they had to come back twice to win back the second and fourth sets, while still having enough mental strength to fight point by point the final and decisive set.
On Sunday, Phoenix had a relatively easier time beating an improved Flyers team 2 sets to nil in the u14 category. In the first set, Phoenix had the game under control, putting constant pressure on the Flyers team and wrapping up the set 25-11. The second set saw Flyers organising themselves better and keeping neck to neck with Phoenix in the first half. However Phoenix’ experience eventually allowed them to break through and move on to finish the set 25-13.
