Knockout kings, RBTT Deacons and losing finalists Greaves Transport & Services Progressive will feature in tonight’s opening matches of the Goddards Enterprises Limited division one volleyball league which will take place at the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex.
Deacons who will be going after their 16th league crown while Progressive will be hoping for better fortune in their bid to clinch a tenth league title. Deacons’ outstanding run in the past 15 years was only interrupted in 2005 and 2007 by British American Insurance Chargers who were no-shows during the knockouts.
This evening Progressive will meet Foundation United at 6.30 before Deacons clash with Berger Friendly Hall at eight. In spite of brief spurts of excitement, Foundation could not match Progressive in two encounters in the knockouts while Friendly Hall could prove to be just a warm-up for Deacons.
The women’s league will also serve off at 6.30 with the BNB Juniors playing the Ambi Toners and newcomers, Powerade The Club opposing Chargers. The Toners and Chargers should easily take those games.
