WINDHOEK - Khomas Nampol Volleyball Club (KNVC) ladies team retained its place at the summit of the National Volleyball Women’s League log standings after defeating both NDF and UNAM with an impressive 3:0 scores, at the SKW Hall last weekend.
KNVC have now increased its lead from three points before last weekend’s games to nine points followed by Revivals (RVC) in 2nd place.
Revivals and UNAM displayed some of the most exciting hits during their encounter, which saw the students beating RVC 3:1 via the impressive Celestia Millers who was spiking from nearly all positions. RVC only showed improvement against the runaway log leaders, but still lost 3:1.
In the Men’s League, NDF consolidated their top spot and remained on course to clinch the coveted league title followed by UNAM.
Although SKW won the game against basement dwellers, Rehoboth (RHVC), the Germans had to settle for 3rd position after their game against UNAM was cancelled, because of an incomplete Imawida side with two players out injured.
Bottom side, RHVC scored two points after defeating KNVC 3:2 and the team from Rehoboth were very determined to record their first victory this year and took advantage of the tired Khomas Nampol (KNVC) who had a tough ride against UNAM.
RHVC’s middle blocker Gordon Jansen, although far too short for that position successfully blocked hits from his taller counterparts. Rehoboth won the 1st and 2nd sets with 27:25 and 25:19 and 5th set 16:14, eventually clinching the tie 3:2 after one and a half hours of exciting action.
The final match in the Men’s League was conducted between relegation candidates DTS and KNVC.
