Peerless Pipeline pip Nairobi Water in volleyball league encounter – Capital Sports

NAIROBI, Kenya, March 18 – National women’s volleyball league defending champions Kenya Pipeline continued their unbeaten streak in the league when they swatted aside newcomers Nairobi Water in straight sets during their match on Saturday afternoon at Nyayo Stadium.

Coach Paul Gitau’s charges were in no mood to pally around, taking the first set 25-12 before winning the second one 25-19.

The third set ended 25-17 in favour of the oilers, confirming what many pundits had expected all along – a whitewash.

It was not a pleasurable day in the office for newbies as Postbank were also thrashed 3-0 by immediate former champions Kenya Prisons at the same venue.

The wardresses were in imperious form, emerging tops thanks to sets of 25-17, 25-12 and 25-12.

Military side, Kenya Defence Force (KDF) and Nairobi Prisons gave fans a treat thanks to their see-saw encounter that ended 3-2 in favour of the former.

KDF began the match on a wrong footing, losing 25-14 in the initial set before recovering to win 25-21 in the second one.

The wardresses were not done though, winning the third set 25-18 to take the game to the fourth set, which ended 15-8 in favour of the soldiers.

Action resumes on Sunday at Nyayo Stadium with the main attraction being the grudge match between Kenya Prisons and last season’s losing finalists, Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB).

Nairobi Water and Postbank will be looking to compound misery on each other when they meet in the first game of the day.
