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!¬†
