Western Volleyball League Finals

Mbarara Youth Volleyball Club -A( 3-2 ) Bishop Stuart University -A

Mbarara Youth Volleyball Club-A(MYVC-A) can now lay claim to being the top volleyball club in the Western Region after they convincingly won the region’s league title by defeating  Bishop Stuart University -A 3-2  at Lugazi Youth courts on Sunday.
 
The tightly-contested final lasted four hours.  BSU-A took an early lead by winning the first set 25-22 before MYVC-A overturned to win the second and third sets 25-09, 25-17, respectively.

But BSU -A kept pressure and came back strongly in the fourth set to level 2-2 after winning 26-24, but lost the decider with a margin of 15-9.

The Bishop Stuart players almost left the court in third and last sets blaming the referees of handling the game poorly.

After the game, the BSU-A coach Amou Tom said he felt cheated over several calls and that the referee played a  big part in the final result.

“My players and I are disappointed because we feel we should have won had the same calls been made correctly. It’s a hard loss to take considering how hard my players have worked,” he said. “We lost the momentum in the third set that granted our opponents massive points,” he said.

I know their team team is parked with experienced players than us but we could have stopped them and we had done it before, but when my players reacted it gave them an advantage to win.

It’s important to know what would have happened if the officials hadn’t screwed thing up.  Surely officials are accountable for this big loss, said Tom.

Innocent Bigira the youth team coach player said they were determined because their focus was to be the first champions of the League.
“We are only limited by the sponsors and if we get them still next season will take it,” said Bigira Innocent the MYVC-A Coach Players.
