Thunderball lost to Onyx B (Men’s D2A - London Volleyball League) 19:21 23:25 16:21
Forty-eight point second set
Everybody being present, ready and eager to play, the match started a few minutes early and Onyx roared away to a 3:10 lead despite a time-out at 3:8. It looked as though we'd be getting an early train home.
Then everything changed and the crowd (equal in size to that at the Malory v Lynx Super8 encounter on Saturday (21st October) but half Thunderball, half Onyx supporters) began to encourage their heroes, encouragement that provided a noisy atmosphere throughout the evening. Thunderball began their comeback. At 15:19 it looked as though they had left it too late but a steady if unspectacular spell by the home side brought them to 19:20 before Luiz Duarte hit off the block on the right flank to gain the point they were by now so desperately seeking.
