May the Spike Be With You

 

Week Two is in the books and we were gifted with another beautiful night for sand volleyball! There were a number of surprises and great matches out on the court and it made for a great atmosphere!

 

As always, our teams brought the booze and there was no shortage of it! We had a grill out tonight which is always sure to be a great time! If you missed us this week, join us next week at the Hangar after the game!

 

Our featured Social game of the week was the first rematch of two teams that previously played each other in a past season’s championship match: Spiked Punch and Rehab Dream Team. Rehab won that match, and Spiked didn’t forget it. However, it looked like Rehab would cruise to a first set victory and potentially the match after taking an early 10-1 lead! As said before, Spiked never concedes and their serves were able to rally them from the deficit to take the first set 25-17! The offensive show would continue for Spiked in the second and would find themselves victorious, 25-17 for the match.

 
On our Super Social side, we feature May the Spike Be With You and Sets on the Beach. Both teams had a double header this evening, and it being the last match of the night, fatigue was sure to be a factor from the get-go. Beach had won its first match while Spike fell just short earlier in the night. With a game’s rest, Sets took advantage of fatigue and took the first set, 25-15. In what looked like would be a short second set, Spike rallied to take the second set 25-23! With everything on the line, both teams trekked to a third set. The third set would feature fantastic volleyball and it came down to ball placement and relentless defense. Tonight, Spike was able to take this third set, 15-10.
