Final score: Renswouw DS 3 – WaHo DS 3 (1-3)

Who the fuck is Maarten?

It was february the 21st, ladies 3 was having a nice looooong dinner. Normally we have to rush to the Bongerd early, so we enjoyed our burgers and potato wedges. In the new sports hall of Renswou, aka only a new sandpaper floor, we were excited to start to play immediately. To our huge disappointment, the match before ours was taking forever. After 45 minutes we could finally start our warming up and get back into the volleyball playing mood.
For the whole match we had huge ups and downs, so it was very thrilling, especially for Pim. He was probably dying inside. 
We started the first set very strong. There was a lot of variation in our attacks. Then suddenly, our focus was gone and so was our head start. Eventually, we fought hard enough to win the set with 26-24. 

Second and third sets had the same ups and downs, but we still prevailed and won both sets with the infamous 2 point difference, 28-26 and 27-25. Silke stole the show in the third set with a beautiful ‘baksteenbal’.

The fourth set was also very thrilling, except we did not win. One of the opponents had really strong service and that is why we had so much difficulty with the set. After a long and difficult fight we lost with 23-25.

At 23:46 the match was finally finished, which meant that Silke’s birthday was in 14 minutes!!!!1!!! So with a bit of poor timing while showering, we sang (semi) naked to her! After we finished showering, we enjoyed Silke’s homemade brownies. 

During the match, the father of Joy wanted to leave, but he got some lottery tickets. After finally getting her attention, he dropped the lottery tickets of. Now, they were forced to stay to see if they won anything. 

The prizes varied from a farmer’s basket with two eggs and local honey to a fitness membership to a shirt of Maarten. We did not have a clue who the hell Maarten is, neither did the people next to us. Sadly, we lost the gym membership in Renswoude to the biggest woman in the room. To our disappointment, we didn’t win anything and had to home empty handed. 

Do you know who Maarten is?

Final score: WaHo HS 1 – Pegasus HS 5 (2-3)

Dear WaHosi,

Everything was going well. Some of us had a nice dinner together with some beautiful ladies of Ladies 8. We had a good feeling, having won the first match against these bastards, and we started the match off pretty well. The first set was way too easy, and we won 25-10. The second set started quite good as well, but then… Out of nowhere a majestic creature so big, so thicc, so full-bodied, so solid, so plump, so corpulent, so blubbery, so humongous, appeared on the field. All the guys were astonished by the presence of this fine creature. When the whale was halfway over, all we could think was we want Mór flopping. When the whale finally flopped off the field, our minds were completely gone. Luckily, we still won this set. But after this, everything went apeshit. The rest of the match is not to be discussed. I (someone from gents 1) really wanted to hurt the opponents, but I was the bigger person. Not as big as the whale tho. Life sucks, the match sucked. I hope the crowd enjoyed themselves, but we didn’t really hear anything from up there. <3 But with a few beers goggles on they might have enjoyed themselves as well.

Porco dio, heel diep, save the whales, joe,

Final score: Set Up ’69 DS 1 – WaHo DS 1 (3-1)

Dear WaHooligans,

Saturday the 2nd of February we played against Set Up ’69 D1 in Scherpenzeel. Having won the WaHome-match at the beginning of the season with 4-0 we were aiming for another victory. Set Up on the other hand, wanted to take revenge. Despite some snow, rain, cold and a combination of all three, we arrived in the sportshall nice and early. Unfortunately we were missing a lot of players but luckily we found Melanie and Sofie willing and able to help us out. 
The first set we started good, with nice service series from Hanneke and Lonne and offensive scores from Nardy, Hannah and Femke. Set Up came back but after a time out we had things going our way again. Melanie and Sofie came in at the end of the set to replace Hanneke and Nardy and we secured the set 25-20.

In the second set we did not start as sharp as the first, and Set Up took a few points lead. We made too many unforced errors to close the gap. In the second half of the set we came back strong, but fell short te win the set (21-25). The third and fourth set were pretty much copies of the second. Some very good play was alternated with unforced errors and our service pressure was not enough to put the Set Up passing line under pressure. We kept going for each ball with enthousiasm but in the end failed to take the sets (19-25 and 20-25), thus losing the match 1-3. All in all some very good play at times, and plenty to build on for the matches to come. 

Out next WaHome match will be the 8th of march against SSS DS 2. Which will surely be another battle for points! Hope to see you then!
