SUCCESSFUL CAMPAIGN—Wolves

Moyale Barracks and Wolves Ladies have retained the K5.5 million Raiply National Volleyball titles.

In men’s category, Moyale came from behind to defeat brothers-in-arms Kamuzu Barracks 3-2 to win the title for the seventh time.

Moyale General Secretary Reignford Khunga said, despite defending the championship, competition was stiff.

“We had to sweat for it because Kamuzu Barracks have greatly improved,” he said.

In response, Kamuzu Barracks General Secretary Alvin Sambo said they lost the match in the last two sets having lost their killer instinct.

“It was a tight contest but we lacked the killer punch. Our energy levels went down when we needed it the most to finish off the game. Honestly it is a painful loss,” Sambo said.

“We are excited with the management of the tournament and, every year, the competition is growing. We are coming again next year and will increase the package,” Das said.

Volleyball Association of Malawi President James Kaunda commended the company for the support.

“Teams have been energised ahead of the National Volleyball League which will be launched this weekend in Lilongwe,” Kaunda said.
