Riga lack fluency but win again

Riga had defeated Loughborough relatively easily in the cup just 13 days ago but in this game Riga discovered that students can learn very quickly, especially under the tuition of coach Bertrand Olie! The first set was an even exchange of mistakes until Riga got to grips with their serves. First Clare and then Alex hit their targets and from 12-10, the students found the set lost, 25-14.
