The Bulls' Diaries - 3 More points!

Hello !

Just a quick update to inform you that the Bulls brought back 3 points last weekend.

1st Game - Vs. Reading Aces

A very important game we had to win to secure our current position in the league. Team was Seb, Simon, Corne, Anders, Peter, Luke, Harry, Dan & myself. We started the first set after a nice & long warm up & it made the difference. We won very quickly & easily 25-8 managing to contain there attacks with strong blocks & amazing "off the blocks" from Dan.
Sam changed the squad on court for the second set, and it went all a bit pear shape. First Reading had started to be much more focused & our block was not as effective as in the 1st set. Our passing was all over the place, we could not recycle or finish the points,... In the end, Reading won the set 25-20.
So Sam put on court the first squad back, and the chemistry worked one more time. We quickly secured a safe 5 points advance, reached 8 ahead & finished the set 15-10.

Dan deserved his MVP title as he scored many points with effective line attacks. Well done mate !

2nd Game - Vs. Spikeopaths 1

We have all decided to forget about the 1st set. Spikeos set up their pace to the set & destroyed us 25-5. It was a lesson.
The second set was more what we were expecting to do. We managed to start recycling the balls more (and maybe everyone was starting to be a bit tired...) Nevertheless we kept a tight score up to 23-23 but Spikeos upped their game at the right time & finished us 25-23. A bit disappointing as we were hoping to go for Tie Break but the result is what it is.

I am not sure who got the MVP for this one. Maybe this can be clarified by whomever is reading this in the comments?

Next fixture on 11th February in Oxford against Readin Uni & Oxford Uni. Bring it on !!!!!
