Broome Advertiser - - Front Page - Carly Laden

The Is­lan­ders’ un­de­feated streak is still alive and well af­ter a straight­sets vic­tory over Vol­ley­ball is Life on April 4.

As com­pe­ti­tion at Vic­tory Life Church drew to its mid­way point, the Is­lan­ders con­tin­ued to be the team to beat.

In the open­ing set the Is­lan­ders got off to an early lead, as Vol­ley­ball is Life strug­gled to get in their groove by mak­ing triv­ial er­rors.

Although Vol­ley­ball is Life started to catch up, it was too late as the Is­lan­ders quickly won the first set.

In the sec­ond set Vol­ley­ball is Life put the pres­sure on the Is­lan­ders as the match be­came more com­pet­i­tive.

The Is­lan­ders suf­fered a slight scare when Vol­ley­ball is Life took the lead, open­ing the door for a pos­si­ble up­set vic­tory but the Is­lan­ders quickly got back on their feet and won the sec­ond set with con­sis­tent serv­ing and hard hits.

There were more com­pet­i­tive ral­lies in the fi­nal set once again as the Is­lan­ders looked to get an­other straight-sets vic­tory and Vol­ley­ball is Life looked to win a set.

How­ever, it was the un­de­feated Is­lan­ders who pre­vailed.

Else­where, the Old Guns made quick work of Stable Odds, win­ning in straight sets, while the un­der­manned Beta Block­ers man­aged a straight-sets vic­tory over Al­ter­na­tive Facts.

Mean­while, Knocked Up beat the Sandy Pan­cakes, 2-1, and Set for Life bounced back from a first-set deficit against Sandy Bad­gers, win­ning 2-1.
