Following their victory against bottom-placed Andorra yesterday, in their second day of the beach volley competition, Malta’s female beach volley team succumbed to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of group leaders Luxembourg.

Gertrude Zarb and Alison Borg found the going tough against their more experienced opponents in the first set. Luxembourg in fact won the first set 21-14.

The second set was a different story, with the Maltese pair keeping up with their opponents and also having two set points to force a deciding third set. But Luxembourg fought back and closed the second set 24-22.

Zarb and Borg are now in joint second place in their qualifying group and tomorrow they face Monaco in a decisive match that could put them in the semifinals and with a chance to win a medal.
