Richmond Bucks sealed a 3-0 win (24, 18, 18) against Weymouth Beach VC to return to the top of the table.
On the other side of Kingston College Arena, Richmond Docklands were having a fiercely contested battle with Newcastle Staffs. The visitors took the first set 25-21 but Marcel Sivak’s fought back to take a 2-1 lead. Docklands led 15-8 in the fourth set but Staffs did not give up. They tied the scores at 20-20 and then the crowd were treated to a ding-dong battle to the conclusion. In the end Docklands took the set 25-23 at the first opportunity with captain David Novotny sealing the final point.
Richmond Bucks complete their 2021 fixtures with two matches next weekend. The take on Cambridge ARU at Teddington on Saturday and then travel to City of Bristol on Sunday.
