Wits Jaguars showed their dominance in their game against Spiker-Roo.
The Wits Jaguars volleyball team won all three sets in their match against Spiker-Roo Ladies in a Johannesburg Volleyball Union game on Wednesday, July 31.
The Witsies started the game on a high note when Spiker-Roo failed to return the opening serve of Witsie Fatima West putting the home side in an early lead.
The Jaguars made several service errors during the first set but still managed to break through the Spiker-Roo defense, taking the set 25-14.
The second set once again saw Wits Jaguars take an early lead as Spiker-Roo player, Cynthia Mabe, served the ball into the net. The high-paced Wits momentum was carried through into the second set which saw Spiker-Roo trying to make a comeback.
The final second set score of 25-19 in the second set was Spiker-Roos highest score in the match.
The third set saw Spiker-Roo take their first lead of the match as Wits Jaguars served into the net. The Wits Jaguars quickly redeemed themselves as Tsholo Khoza served an unstoppable ball securing a seven-point lead.
Toward the end of the match, Spiker-Roo’s frustrations grew as they struggled to put points on the board. The Wits Jaguars won the third set 25-14 securing the win.
Zweli Mgwenya, Wits Jaguars head coach complimented his team despite feeling like they had lost focus at times. He told Wits Vuvuzela “We played well. This is our strongest team and I didn’t expect anything less than a win.”
Spiker-Roo player Senzile Siziba said the team had four new players and only three senior players during the match which impacted their performance. “With the new players we need to adjust how we play.
“They must get into the rhythm … It is a new experience for them,” said Siziba.
