Ladies defeated by Sheffield

On Saturday 8 March Riga ladies hosted Sheffield at Alan Higgs.  Having had a close game v Sheffield earlier in the season and both teams being near the top of the league, it was all to play for.

Riga ladies travelled to Loughborough this weekend to face Loughborough in the National Shield Semi-final.  It was a re-run of last year's semi-final where Riga also faced Loughborough.  Having lost to Loughborough in the league the week before, Riga were keen to get off to a strong start.

*****STOP PRESS*****  These sessions will now restart on Thursday 6th March rather than 27th Feb as previously advertised.

Womens 'back to volleyball' sessions restart on Thursday 27th February at Bablake School in Coventry.  Whether you have played volleyball on holiday or at school the sessions are ideal for those looking to get back into the game.

This weekend saw Riga host Oxford ladies in the Volleyball England National Shield competition.  Riga started strong, good passing from libero Netti allowed Clare to distribute the ball with Brit hitting some strong winners through four and Kat through the middle.  The team palyed with momentum and took and early lead.  

 

After playing xford in a five set match, a tired squad then faced Nottingham Rockets who had shown in their game v Oxford that they were a clever team.  With Ana as libero the passing unit worked well allowing Clare to use options.  Sophie hit well through two and Britt and Mille won a string of points at four.  Clare had a run of seven serves and Riga were 17-7 ahead. Good blocks from Mim saw Riga close the set 25-12.

Ladies lose five set thriller v Oxford

 

This weekend the ladies had a double header playing Oxford and then Nottingham Rockets.  Oxford are also unbeaten in the league so it was sure to be a tight match.

The men faced Malory Eagles at home on Saturday.  After a feisty warm up Malory took an early lead showing an organised team that were out for a win.  Wyles connected well with Howe and edged up the points. Atzeni joined the fray at 10:16  but Malory powered on and took the set 25-16.

Some strong words from Freddie Fairbourn and Riga returned to the Court. Good passing from libero Young allowed Wyles to find Haensel well.  However, Malory maintained momentum and won the set 25-17.
