In a game that was difficult to predict the winner, it was the ladies of the University of Development Studies whose resilience helped them to beat the formidable University of Ghana team.
The UDS team won the 1st set 17-25 with some delightful team play.
At the end of the 2nd set it was UG who had tied the game to make it 1:1 with a delightful score line of 25-17 in a fiery encounter.
It could have been anyone’s game at this point but it was team UDS who took control of the tie by winning the 3rd set by 19-25 to make it 2-1 with a commanding performance.
It looked like UDS were on their way to victory but Team UG had other ideas as they kept fighting and tied the game again with a 25-17 score to make it 2:2 at the end of the 4th set.
Both teams had all to play for in the final set and they both gave it their very best.
Ultimately UDS came out on top despite a lengthy stoppage due to officiating issues.
The game official made a call against skipper of team UG, Victoria Lebbie, which the ladies and their coaches disagreed with and vehemently protested against.
After a lengthy confrontation with officials, team UG reluctantly continued the game eventually losing.
This is the 2nd time the UG ladies team have lost a game in the 5th set.
