Namibia: NDF Men's Volleyball Still On Top

The Namibian Defence Force's men's volleyball team concluded the Bank Windhoek National Volleyball League's first round with a clean record after beating UNAM by 3 sets to 1.

NDF started the game strongly in the 1st set, beating their opponents 25:16, but the students responded aggressively with the fierce spiking of Nchindo Sinvula and quality setting by Kamwi Sezuni in the 2nd set to beat the soldiers 25:11.

The men in uniform came back strongly with unstoppable spikes from Eddy Uyepa and Andreas Engombe to win the 3rd and 4th sets 25:22 and 25:22 respectively, leaving them with an unbeaten record since the beginning of the current term.

"The most extraordinary thing about this particular match was the quality displayed by both sets of players. The display was of an exceptionally high quality and it is regarded by many as the most exciting match of the season", said Joel Matheus, Vice-President for Internal Affairs at the Namibian Volleyball Federation.

In other matches, SKW beat Rehoboth 3 sets to 0, while the Khomas Nampol Volleyball Club (KNVC) showed great skill against DTS with fierce spiking from Joseph Amakali and Jason Nangolo.

In the ladies division, Revivals Volleyball Club (RVC) suffered a double blow - losing both their matches against NDF and DTS, 3 sets to 1, while Polytechnic lost 3:0 against NDF.

The next league games will be played this coming weekend at the NDF military base in Grootfontein.
