The National – Thursday, June 30, 2011
PACE setters U-Mi Yet continued their supremacy in the PNGNWT NCD women’s volleyball competition with a 3-0 thrashing of Snipers at the Taurama Leisure Centre last Saturday.
Snipers found themselves on the receiving end of the reigning premiers.
Although Snipers’ setter Fenila Egahu was impressive providing superb sets for her hitters Gima Garo, Emma Sarufa, Karen Balum and Mithie Alu, they were restricted by their opponents from finding the gaps to sneak in points.
U-Mi Yet blockers Nope Karo, Ann-Marie Moha and Mary Alua were equal to the task by limiting their options and making it more difficult for the opposition.
U-Mi Yet capitalised on their opponents’ mistakes to register valuable points.
Snipers could not stop the attack from U-Mi Yet hitters Lily Laho, Luana Travertz, Tracey Hani and Marie Oini as they continued to punish them.
But they had to count on playmakers Elizabeth-Peti Unatah and Morehari Laho who set up their formidable attack and went on the win comfortably.
In the other games, Scorpions beat Medics United 3-1, After Dark thrashed MRA 3-0 and Pom Tech edged Ela Motors 3-2.
