Railstars win national league games


Railstars continued to reign supreme in the Zimbabwe National Volleyball League when they won their two respective matches played at Danhiko Volleyball Courts in Harare on Saturday.

The Bulawayo side beat Support Unit 3-0 before they finished off by beating Kutama Old Boys’ Association (Koba) by the same scoreline.

They top the National Volleyball League log with 16 points from eight matches.

Railstars coach Itsanang-Abu-Basutu said he was impressed with the performance of the team.

“We have won all our matches so far because of team work and we have been preparing for our very games very well. This has contributed to us winning all our games,” he said.

In the first set Railstars beat Support Unit 25-21 while they won the second and third sets 25-14.

Railstars continued with their dominance in the second game against Koba as they won 25-17, 25-18 in the second set before they recorded a 25-17 win in the last set to guarantee themselves a victory.

Abu-Basutu said despite their good run in the national league, there was no room for complacency.

“We have been winning our games, but the players still need to be focused if we are to maintain our record. We are starting the second round of the league next month so we expect that competition is now going to be tough,” he said.

Players in the team include receivers Conrad Kupara and captain Tawanda Makumbe while Patrick Mupira and McErick Ndlovu are the centre blockers. Kudzai Sibangani is the utility player while Bruce Makombe is the setter.

Kenneth Chitambo can be thrown into the fray as a centre blocker or as a setter.

They started off their campaign by beating Non-Academic Boys’ Association (Naba) 3-1. In their next game they beat JS Harare 3-0 before they finished their last game in Harare dismissing Stanbic Thunder 3-0.

Last month, Railstars continued with their good performance as they won all three of their games played at Bulawayo Club for the Disabled.
They recorded 3-0 victories over Hawks, Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe and Black Rhinos.
