DCI volleyball Queens, the Nyerere Cup title holders, are defending their title in this year’s Nyerere Cup championship, currently ongoing at the Ngarenaro sports complex in Arusha, Tanzania.
The team which entered into the second day of the competitions thrashed fellow compatriots Hakika three sets to one in one of the most sought-after encounters at the Ngarenaro sports complex.
“The first set proved an uphill challenge for the home team as the opponents took advantage of their height to harass our sleuths, leaving head coach Daniel Bor pacing up and down the pitch in search of answers.
Buoyed by their win, Hakika came into the second set in high spirits, but they were stopped on their tracks by our queens, who snatched the set 26-24 in a highly competitive encounter that left the technical bench literary on the edge of their seats,” said DCI.
Determined to make a comeback, Hakika secured 17 quick points to DCI’s 10 in the third set, forcing head coach Daniel Bor to introduce right attacker Maureen Indeche.
Paired with prolific setter Faith Imondia, Indeche skillfully attacked the opponent’s side setting the pitch ablaze.
The sleuths displayed a consecutive masterclass that saw them steal the set by 25 points to Hakika’s 23.
“The queens comfortably took the set with ease to win the game,” added DCI.
Earlier in the tournament’s first game, the DCI Queens had stunned hosts Arusha Queens three sets to nil in a one-sided affair, scoring 25-13, 25-7, and 25-9 in the first, second and third sets consecutively.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
