Chargers beat UWI
26-28, 25-8, 25-17 to score their second victory of the new season with Bovell and her daughter, youth national captain Dashonta Addison carrying the fight. The contributions from Anglesha Hinds, Devon Leacock and Kenisha Marshall also proved too potent for the Blackbirds.
Omega XL Deacons also notched up their second win, beating Club United 25-5, 2512, 23-25, 25-13. Club fell to their second loss but they survived an embarrassing thrashing in the first set to surprisingly take the third set from a relaxed Deacons.
After defaulting their match against Cawmere on Sunday, Progressive turned up on Monday night to hand Foundation United their second successive loss 25-16, 2523, 25-21 in the men’s action.
League kings Cawmere were made to fight a bit harder to extinguish All Stars 25-20, 25-22, 15-25, 25-20. That was All Stars’ second loss in two games. Jonathan Alleyne was on fire for the Stars but he was eclipsed by the nova blaze from national captain Shawn Simpson and Jamaican duo Mark Lewis and Robert Samuels.
Both Chargers and Deacons women should score their third win when the competition continues today at the Gym. Deacons will face Carlton at 6:30 p.m. while Chargers meet Club United at 8 p.m. The men’s games pit Foundation against Deacons with Chargers and Cawmere battling in what should be a slugfest.
