Armed forces continue assault
The Namibia Defence Force (NDF) volleyball ladies team seemed to be an unstoppable force, as the team remained unbeaten after the fourth weekend of the Bank Windhoek National Volleyball League. The ladies in uniform started the game very strong in the first set were they beat their opponents, Revivals 25:06 and 25:21 in the second set, but their opponents responded aggressively in the second set and beat the defence team by 27:25 points in a 28 minute long set. The armed forces team came back strong to win the fourth set 25:21 making them an unbeaten team since the beginning of the season in May. In other matches that were played the Khomas Nampol destroyed the student team of UNAM in the first set by a record score of 25:04. UNAM did not manage to recover from the disaster of the first set and lost the game by 3-0.
The last game which was played in freezing weather conditions, saw Revivals beat, struggling UNAM by 3-0, yet again marking UNAM as the weakest link.
Meanwhile in the Men’s League, Khomas Nampol (KNVC) dominated as they won both their games against Navy from Walvisbay and Eleven Warriors (EWVC) from Grootfontein. The boys from the sea, the, naval team suffered a double blow as both their games did not conclude in their favour. The Navy team displayed a very disappointing show as they had defeated Eleven Warriors in the first two sets, but could not record their first win as Eleven Warriors came back to beat them 3:2. Navy showed potential against Khomas Nampol as they won the first set 27:25, but luck was not on their side, as Nampol managed to come back with fearless spikes from Rehabeam Hengari and Messah Kambali and won the game 3:1. The next next games of the league will be on the first week of July in Grootfontein.
