and were look­ing very im­pres­sive in the sec­ond be­fore los­ing the plot.

A com­bi­na­tion of poor set­ting op­tions by Dea­cons in feed­ing the ball to less po­tent at­tack­ers scut­tled their ad­van­tage.

Crafty

On the other hand, Charg­ers’ set­ter Dashonta Ad­di­son kept her crafty mother Sharon Bovell, as well as Kin­isha Mar­shall, Daneka Headley and mid­dles Janettte Browne and Tho­nya Joseph, primed and fir­ing.

While her team­mates at­tacked with greater power, Bovell con­sis­tently glided the ball down the lines, con­found­ing Dea­cons.

De­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Pan Amer­i­can In­ter­na­tional In­sur­ance War­rens dis­missed Club United 25-22, 25-21, 25-19. They ended the round with a 5/1 record and 22 points.

The Club re­main in the cel­lar with two points from five de­feats.

Phoenix Se­cu­rity Ser­vices Carl­ton will en­ter Round 2 with a 4/2 record and 17 points after beat­ing Burger King Clapham Ton­ers 25-23, 25-13, 25-22.

Carl­ton fin­ished last season in the cel­lar with 15 points after gain­ing just two vic­to­ries. Ton­ers are 1/4 with seven points with an out­stand­ing game against Club United.

In the lone men’s game, Charg­ers eased past Foun­da­tion United 28-26, 25-22, 28-30, 25-20.

The win meant Charg­ers and Foun­da­tion swapped the cel­lar spot. Charg­ers moved to six points after win­ning their first game in four matches, while Foun­da­tion are on three points after four de­feats.

Al­though Ashan Jor­dan and Car­los Cyrus at­tacked with sheer power for Charg­ers, Foun­da­tion found great coun­ters in Darien Seale, Pierre Nurse and Kadeem Morris. But coach Fer­nando Skeete could do lit­tle as his team served poorly, re­peat­edly gifted points, psy­cho­log­i­cal ad­van­tages and even­tu­ally the match to Charg­ers.
