With no local league matches for a while, Torexe Spitfires headed to Bristol at the weekend for round three of the Bristol Ladies league Tournament. Last year we finished 8th in our round but this year we were aiming for a top four finish.
Eleven teams had entered which gave use eight matches, Bristol University were dispatched first, next up was Taunton, who had beaten us last week in the EDVA league. It was a very tight match but at the final whistle it was 25-24 to Torexe.
Horfield Hornet and Volleywood came and went, then it was the SW U16 Development Squad. Sliced float serves became an issue and we ended up 8 point down at the start, a quick reshuffle gave us a slight advantage and we set about clawing our way back into the match. It was another nail biting finish but at the hooter the girls had done it by two points.
We were by now the team to watch and the remaining teams were brushed aside, leaving us as the only unbeaten team and top spot.
Well done to Eleanor, Anna, Nadia, Cat, Flo, Karis & Kirsty
