Green shoots of progress
Arena Men's team post their first victory of the season with a hard fought 5 set win over Loughborough Students.

With a hastily assembled team, mostly meeting each other for the first time during the warm-up, Arena built on their previous performance against Ashfield Vipers to deliver the result they wanted.  Although, it could have been delivered a bit quicker for most members of the team....

Arena played solidly to take the first two sets convincingly, before easing off enough in the third set to allow L'Bro to take it 26-24.  Fatigue began to set in for Arena, allowing L'bro to take the fourth set, pushing the match in to a fifth set decider.

Fortunately, Arena's collective experience saw them run away with the final set, allowing them to take a well-earned victory.

As the saying goes, 'Youth and enthusiasm will always lose out to age and treachery....'
