Exeter Storm notched another two victories to stay top of the South West Volleyball League.

First up were Wiltshire Mavericks, who Storm had already defeated 3-0 in impressive fashion earlier in the season.

Mavericks made a better account of themselves in this encounter, having called on some players from their National League team.

Storm still outplayed Mavericks in every department, to take the match in straight sets; 25-11, 25-18, 25-15. All three Storm debutants, Danny Lewis, Kris Ozarski and Seb Toupy, put in confident performances.

The second match proved to be much tougher. The young Cardiff Celts side, which includes several members of the Welsh junior national team, weren’t fazed by the physically superior Storm.

Their well organised defence was difficult for the Storm hitters to break down. Storm edged the first set 25-22, but lost the second 25-20 as a result of impressive hitting from Celt’s experienced player-coach, José Castro.

After a couple of tactical substitutions by Coach Mosley, Storm regained control of the match.

With more consistency in both attack and defence, the league leaders took the third and fourth sets 25-17 and 25-20, to complete a 3-1 victory.

With eight consecutive victories, the undefeated Exeter Storm looks like strong favourites for the league title. Kernow Truro and Cardiff Wildcats will provide their next test, on December 16.
