Second fixture of the season for Ladies 2!

This is just a short match report, but wanted to let you all know how Ladies 2 got on today, in our second fixture of the season. We travelled to Queen Mary's College to take on Maidenhead and Basingstoke.With many of the players new to the club and three setters not able to play, we were grateful to Izzy, who did a fab job in her first time as setter, and to Amra, who stepped up to play opposite for the first time. It took us a little while to get going, but in a great display of mental strength (not to mention some fine volleyball!) we came back from 16-10 down to being close to taking the set, in the end narrowly losing by 25-23. The less said about the second set the better, but thank you to Seb for giving us a kicking, with the result that we stormed the first set of second match 25-9. Basingstoke upped their game for the next set, but we were up to the challenge and some great team work saw us take the set 25-21, winning the match. Congrats to Fliss for gaining MVP in both matches! And well done to the whole team: Amra, Andrea, Anna W, Fliss, Giulia, Helen, Izzy and our coach, Seb!
