Last Saturday defending champions ECFH took on WLBL to start the evening. With former employee and last years’ MVP Amobi Armstrong cheering them on from the stands, ECFH won this one pretty easy, with great blocking by Ryan Devaux.
The second match of the evening saw the undefeated C Beverages CBS) take on NSDC. The match was filled with point changes and rallies as the two teams battled-CBS to secure the first place in their group and NSDC to secure second. C Beverages took this on in straight sets.
