In a a battle of nerves at the Cottonera Sports Complex today, Flyers Depiro II won the deciding game that crowned them champions in the 2nd Division category of the local volleyball league organised by the Malta Volleyball Association.

Flyers faced Birkirkara, with only 1 point separating the two teams before this encounter, and it was Birkirkara who started off with a bang when they raced to a 25-10 victory in the first set. A stunned Flyers side reacted in the second set to level the match, but it was Birkirkara who once again took the reigns of the match in a close third set which they managed to close off with a 25-22 score in their favour.

Birkirkara could not maintain the momentum in the last two sets, with Flyers pipping them in the final tie-break with a minimal difference of 3 points. This was a very satisfactory result for the members of the Flyers Depiro club who this season were the finalists in the Fr. Parnis National Cup, Winners in the girld mini volley league, winners of the women’s 2nd division league and also finished 2nd in the women’s 1st division league. One must also commend newcomers Birkirkara, one of the most active teams this season, whose members have organised a number of events such as volleyball tournaments and also a score keeping course.

Final score women’s 2nd division playoff final:
Flyers Depiro II 3 – Birkirkara – 2
Set scores: 10-25, 25-18, 22-25, 25-20, 15-12
