VTC Thunders roared to a fine victory over Chanco at the Blantyre Youth Centre (BYC) on Saturday to win the title of the Southern Region Volleyball League (SRVL).
After staying for about a year without participating in any a competition due to lack of sponsored contests, Thunders relived their glorious days when they overcame Chanco 3-0 in the finals of the self-sponsored contest.
Through the likes of Khuma Kauwa, Roy Hausi and Dokiso Mkalipe, the side looked primed to win the match as they forced Chanco on the back-foot with consistent serves and awesome smashes.
After losing the first set and realising that they had little chances of holding the serves, Chanco marched back into contention with a different approach of unorthodox attacks, but they could not spill the blood of the Thunders who counterattacked with all guns blazing.
â€œWe found inspiration in the serves. Our opponents could not easily break our serves and we took advantage of that to punish them,â€ said Thunders senior player James Mangani after the game.
But Chancoâ€™s vice-captain Blessings Magombo attributed the defeat to poor coordination during the match.
