The ladies’ side were handicapped again with players missing but surprised the Glasgow International side by establishing a 16/11 lead. Natalia Stopowska and Sarah Driscoll caused many problems for the home defence. Despite some big scores from GI, the Dundee side managed to manufacture a 21/16 lead, with Agnes Bednarek and Clair Pollock defending well. Stopowska hits and a Pollock serve ‘Ace’ gave Dundee the set 25/20. This was as good as it gets for the next two sets as the home side stepped up the power! They raced to a 16/7 lead in the second set with big serves and big hits, taking the set with ease 25/12. The third set was even more emphatic as they took a 10/2 lead, scoring 9 points in a row. Another run of 7 points without reply spelled disaster for the visitors. A series of 13 errors and 7 points from the GI service gave the set away in double quick time, 10/25.
Sarah Driscoll then stepped up and pulled the team with her as the fourth set became more competitive. Dundee had a 12/11 lead but GI came back to take a 17/5 advantage. Sacha Tissot and Clair Pollock both scored but another run of 6 points without reply gave the final lead to the home side and they finished off the set 25/21. This result lifts GI up to third place in the league, with Dundee still second bottom above City of Edinburgh ll.
