Volleyball: City oust Bon Accord in cup

Have your say

City of Edinburgh volleyball team maintained their unbeaten start to the season but had to work hard to overcome Bon Accord 29-27, 25-15, 18-25,

25-22 in the first round of the John Syer Trophy.

Edinburgh Jets lost 3-1 to City of Glasgow Ragazzi in Carluke, but they look to be more resilient under new coach John Gaughan, the former Scotland internationalist.

In the women’s John Syer Trophy, City of Edinburgh dropped a set to NUVOC before coming through 25-19, 25-9, 23-25, 25-13.

Jo Haken posed City problems on occasion but the Scottish champions had too much power and won comfortably enough. Edinburgh Jets were too strong for North Lanarkshire, winning 25-16, 25-11, 25-18 on their home court.
