USC IN GEELONG UPDATE
We are getting to the end of yet another season. Last night saw the top 4 teams play-off in essentially the elimination finals. The winners of the two matches play each other in the Grand Final next Monday night @ 7pm at the Leisure Centre.
The Croatian and USC teams were evenly matched. They exchanged powerful attacks with both sides providing support in defense which made for exciting and lengthy rallies. USC had a strong line-up and with the leadership of Anje Makohon took the first set. Croatia tightened up in the second and with a strong back line and coupled with the young line up of Dale Gordon, Ben Davidson and Brad Glynn, the attack was too much for USC. The rest of the match continued in the same manner with Semir Mustovic and Rob Straube providing the balance in the attack.
Syrena started off very confidently in the first two sets easily brushing aside Shados 25-11 and 25-10. In the third the over-confidence created a few issues for Syrena and before they could stem the side Shados clawed their way up to a win 29-27. The fourth set showed the depth of the talent in the Syrena line-up, lead by Mark Filipowicz and David Pundij, when they reverted to their methodical approach used in the first two sets and overcame any attacks from Shados and thus taking the match.
The results of the matches;
Croatia def USC Lion 3:1 - 24-26, 25-20, 25-20, 25-11
Syrena def Shados 3:1 - 25-11, 25-10, 27-29, 25-15
Next weeks match should be a well contested event and a worthwhile spectacle if both sides continue from last nights efforts. The GRAND FINAL will be played at Leisuretime Centre starting 7.30pm.(match starts at this time)
USC WINS GRAND FINAL
Congratulations to the USC guys playing in the Kew Premier League for winning the grand final against Whoosh. After being 2 sets down (again) the boys battled back to win and the next 3 sets. It was a tough 4th set, being 18 - 21 down and coming back to win that one 26 - 24.
The boys efforts at World Masters scored them a 5th place in Sydney. All credit to them for such a great effort. They had such a terrific time that already there is talk of entering a team for the World Masters in Torino 2013!
USC TAKES OAKLEIGH
Congratulations to the USC guys playing in Oakleigh on a Tuesday night for winning the grand final. After being 2 sets down and MATCH POINT down in the third, Andrew Petryshyn and the boys battled to win that, and the next 2 sets. Needless to say everyone was ecstatic and a huge congratulations is extended to everyone playing in that team.
A great effort with a fanstastic result guys!
