SOUTH RECREATIONAL MIXED LEAGUE
Congratulations to all teams that came along to take part in the south mixed recreational league. The cup competition started of the day and all top seeded teams from Day 1 and 2 were able to come through their Quarter finals except for the 4th & 5th place game. Inglorious Volleyballers were able to see of Balls 2 in an extremely close game 27-25, 18-25, 25-18. The other QF's pitted both Netforce teams together and once again in a very tight match it was the A team that progressed 25-17, 17-25, 25 - 21. The top two seeded teams Impact A and Bishopstown were also able to see off Balls 1 9 (25-14, 25-11, 25-19)and UCC Zenith (25-20, 25,13, 25, 13) in straight sets to set up their semi final positions. Both semi finals were hard fought and in the end we had Impact A advance over Netforce A (25-19, 25-21 ) while Bishopstown put an end to Inglorious volleyballer's day (25-17, 25-15) to set up this year's cup final. It was finally won by a strong Bishopstown finish in 2 sets (25-15, 25-12) to take the crown of Cup champions 2016. The newly formed shield competiton also had some great volleyball and tight games. Bishopstown took on the Black Knights in a semi final game that could have gone either way. It was Bishopstown that emerged victorious in the 3rd set - 22-25 , 25-22, 24-26. VBAK the league leaders were up against UCC Pirates in a game that also could have gone either way however it was VBAK that pushed on to book their place in the final with Bishopstown (25-22, 25-21). It was to be a great day for the Bishopstown club however as they won in 2 clear sets to take home the cup and shield in 2016 .
