After two days of volleyball, Torexe Ladies qualified for a semi-final play off spot with a good third place finish in the pool rounds. The team dispatched National league division 3 side, City of Bristol by a good nine points at the hooter (36 – 25) to set up a championship match final against Bristol Ladies 1. Bristol were unbeaten all weekend and the team is currently ranked 11th in the country.
And what a final it was, Torexe took an early 6 – 0 lead and extended it to 16-5 at one point before Bristol came back into the match but is was too late, Torexe had the first set 25-18. The second set was much closer but in the end it went to Bristol 19-25.
Therefore it was everything to play for in the third and deciding set, Torexe called the first time out at 8-12 down, the match then swung and it was Bristol calling the time outs at 10-13, then again at championship point 12-14. Torexe then leveled it at 14-14 and we were into a nail-biting finish, which swung back and fourth between the two teams until finally Bristol converted one of the many match points in to a championship winning point at 18-20.
Final Result– Bristol Ladies 1 vs Torexe (Result: 18:25; 25:19; 20:18)
