Volleyball: Ragazzi are party poopers

Have your say

City of Glasgow Ragazzi did their best to spoil City of Edinburgh volleyball club’s 20th birthday celebrations by handing the men’s SVL Premier leaders their first defeat of the season.

In front of a capacity crowd at Queensferry High School, Ragazzi came through in three tough sets 25-22, 25-22, 25-20.

In SVL 1, City of Edinburgh II lost in straight sets to Su Ragazzi II 20-25, 19-25 14-25. But, in the women’s SVL Premier, City of Edinburgh defeated their main challengers Su Ragazzi 27-25, 25-20, 25-18.

The first set could have gone either way, but the champions gained the upper-hand at the death to take the set.

Edinburgh Jets beat promoted NUVOC 25-17, 25-13, 25-23 in a hotly-contested derby at ST Augustine’s High.
