BVA league kicks off

The Bulawayo Volleyball Association (BVA) kicked off over the weekend with some tightly-contested matches characterising the season opener.

Hurricanes women took an early lead into the league following their 3-0 drubbing of Nust Vikings. They are, however, tied on three points with second-placed Luveve High, who accounted for Bulawayo Poly by a similar margin. The two teams are separated on the log standings by virtue of alphabetical order.

Bulawayo Poly, on two points courtesy of their 3-2 win over Nust Vikings, are in third place while Vikings who are yet to pick up a point after two matches anchor the bottom of the table. In the men’s section, Highlanders and Nust Vikings lead the log standings with six points each after winning two games apiece.

Highlanders were in a no-nonsense mood as they massacred Khami Prisons and Elephants 3-0 respectively. Vikings on the other hand beat South Western Districts 3-0 and Hurricanes 3-1 respectively.
Luveve High are in third place on five points after edging Khami 3-2 and a 3-0 demolition of TelOne.

BVA chairperson William Mazviro said the players were visibly rusty but showed a lot of determination to fight. “All went very well, players still finding their feet but the games were tightly contested with 3-2 wins,  “I would say it was an excellent start,” Mazviro told the Daily News.
