Guildford International v Essex Trinity
05th October 2013
Score: 13-25, 21-25, 13-25
Trinity are off to a fantastic start to the season against, Division 2 regulars Guildford International beating them, 3-0!
The 1st set started evenly, with both sides taking points but, with a composed defence from Lambert and Miller and superb attacking forces from Bartlett, Williams & Ambrosio Trinity managed to pull away and take the opening set.
The 2nd set was a much more closely contested affair. Trinity were not as clinical with their passing, meaning Green was unable to get the ball away to the attackers. This allowed Guildford to stay in the set. Coach Laybourne made a decisive change and brought on Bohannan to spice up the middle attack, this was imperative as it meant that Trinity were able to forge ahead and take the 2nd set definitively.
The 3rd set was much like the 1st, Trinity dominated with their solid passing and formidable attacking. Guildford was just unable to respond in kind and with a catalogue of errors, Trinity pounced and pushed forward to take the final set.
Lot’s to improve on but an excellent start to the season for Trinity!
