Vixen Numbed as Bees Sting Their Way to Glory.
The Uon bees venomously stung their way to victory in a revenge final match played at the Moi university grounds to painfully avenge their day one loss at the hands Moi town campus.
The bees started on a high note with spikes coming from all angles to force the opponents to a time out at 15-3 in the first set. The game continued with bees, guided by the receiving hands of Erick machu, making minced meat of their opponents to win the set at 25-16.
The second set followed the same script as the first and soon it became a matter of saving time and not just winning. Moi town campus put a spirited fight that sent jitters through bee’s camp, but bees relied on heavy strikes from Pascal, Mathenge and the team captain, to shrug off attempts with a narrow 25-23 win for the second set.
The third and final set was easy as Moi town campus had lost the vigor and tenacity by which they played the first match. It dint take long before they started fumbling, hitting the net and serving out. Uon bees won the match 3-0 to carry the trophy back to the city.
Earlier in the day the vixens found the going tough as they could only manage one win in a round robin tournament beating minnows Rongo 3 sets to none then losing to Moi university main campus and chepkoilel respectively. The results saw them finish second from last in a tournament of four teams.
