Result: Lost 1-3, 16-25, 25-23, 18-25, 11-25

Awful. A disappointing end to a terrible local league season. 

Seahawks are a young, inexperienced team and we had significant advantages in height and power but still we managed to find ways to lose points and give away the advantage every time we began to get something going. Seahawks grew into the game, improving set by set as the match went on until, by the 4th set, they were serving strongly and consistently, passing pretty well and mounting lots of winning attacks. By contrast our team got weaker as the match progressed passing up two, sometimes three opportunities to hit winners in rallies eventually won by Seahawks and completely failing to put up an effective block.
