Richmond NVL2 Women’s team started their countdown to Christmas with travelling to Southampton last Sunday and bringing home 3:0 victory. One done, three to go in the next two weeks !
Richmond stormed to a commanding lead by the second technical timeout in the first and second set – 16-7 and 16-9 respectively.
First set closed on 25-14. In the second set after a strong start the coach GSG made some changes in the lineup to finish in no time at 25-12. In the third set the hosts tried hard to turn the tables but visitors showed strong performance and great character to close the set and game by two clear points at 25-23.
Head Coach GSG commented : ” The team demonstrated good consistency in their performance and good concentration. Substitution players stayed alert and ready, and contributed very positively when on court. The future for this team is bright – just need to work hard in training, play as a unit and enjoy the game. Results will come very naturally”
The game saw a great performance from the captain Katie Keefe and also from the new recruits to the team Lucy Knott, Nina Erminio and Ana Panagiotaki
MVP for Richmond: Aurelia Braguglia
This weekend also saw the first defeat for Reading Aces, the opposition for Richmond VB in the last away game of this year on the 9th December. Currently Richmond has a very comfortable position in the table and might start dreaming of the league top spot Christmas…. Why not? With some hard work and great team spirit everything is possible!
Next home match for the team is a Shield round on 1 December, Saturday, 4pm at Kingston College Arena.
