Revenge in a bigger hall

With a Friday evening match and the peaky-nineders you never know what you’re going to get. Especially when facing a higher ranked team which beat us 4-0 in our previous encounter. We had long started our warming up when the opponent was yet to be seen. The intimidation in the away match earlier this season had clearly paid off as they started the match without halve of their team being present. The intimidation and loud chanting in the tiny hall in Langeveen worked so well that they only arrived when the first set was almost over. The match had unforeseen motivation from the entire team and the chants and smashes showed how badly we wanted to win. The first two sets we had close sets and with the service pressure and the motivation from the sideline we were able to pull them over the line. In the break between the second and third it seemed like the drinks that we were having started to affect us and we lost the set 16-25. Looking at the clock and realizing that our Friday evening was slipping from our fingers, we made a final push in the fourth set to win with 28-26 and enjoy the rest of our evening. 


We won with great motivation

With an amazing technical foundation

The win was hard-fought 

Flash stars had no shot

Without their small hall as compensation
