Despite the team being reduced to the minimum number of 6 players, our girls gave everything in their last match of the season against the strong and young Newbridge VC. Newbridge put in their strongest team, with multiple national team players in their starting 6, but our girls played their best game in the first set, bringing the match to 1-0.

After two shaky sets, in which Newbridge’s serve got more consistent, the Galway girls came back in the fourth set, bringing the match to a tie. Eventually, due to the lack of subs and the tiredness of the players, the hosting team won the final set.
