First win for new setter Dave Bonnar

First win for new setter Dave Bonnar

National League volleyball was back on the menu last Saturday with both Dundee sides travelling west to Lenzie for League 1 games.  The men started very well and opened up a 15/4 lead with scores from Mike Coward, Rad Marinov and 3 score blocks from Aus Dowie.  The visitors pressed on and had a lead at 22/9.  Lenzie clawed back 4 points but Dundee took the set 25/13.  The second set was riddled with errors but the home side scored 6 points to lead 19/13.  Scores from Marinov and Coward were not enough to stop Lenzie taking the set 25/18.

In set 3 it was all Dundee again as they strolled comfortably to lead 14/5 including 4 points from Dave Bonnar’s service.  There was little reply from Lenzie and Dundee took the set 25/11.  Scores from Lewis Crockart and debutant, James McNeill, kept Dundee close to the home side and the scores were tied at 19/19.  A Marinov service ‘ace’ and a big score net block gave Dundee the edge and they took the set 25/20 and the game 3 sets to 1.
