City of Edinburgh moved two points clear at the top of the women’s Scottish Volleyball League with a double win over Su Ragazzi at the weekend.

City enjoyed a 25-13, 25-20, 25-20 win at Queensferry High School on Saturday and an 
11-25, 25-12, 25-15, 25-16 victory in Coltness yesterday.

The Capital side blew Su Ragazzi away in the first set on Saturday. But Great Britain Olympic captain Lynne Beattie rallied Ragazzi stepped up a gear in the second set, but City had too many weapons with Mel Coutts, Jen Thom and Sophie Hunter all finding ways past the Ragazzi block.

Jo Morgan then produced some strong serving in the third set as City took the match.

Ragazzi responded by winning the first set convincingly yesterday, but City won the next three to go clear at the top.

City of Edinburgh’s hopes of winning the men’s first division suffered a setback as they lost 25-18, 25-23, 23-25, 23-25, 16-14 to title rivals Glasgow Mets.
