Sand volleyball is back and better than ever down south at Moontower! We have twelve teams signed up and ready to leave it all on the courts! With three games on three courts all night long and $2 Dollar Bud Lights, there’s no need to go anywhere else.
Our season openers for the evening put on quite the show! Suck My Dink faced off against Ball Whisperers over on court one, and lost in a two-set match in favor of the team who whispers sweet nothings to volleyballs. Court two was a quick match with Block Party knocking out Balls and Spikes Make Everything Nice in two sets. Veteran teams Four The Watch went three rounds with team Dodgeball on court three, and both looked like they didn’t take a day off from sand volleyball during the off season. Dodgeball jumped to a 6-point lead in the first set, but For The Watch was right on their heals and tied the game at 11-all. From that moment on, the set went point for point all the way to a tied game of 24-24. The cap point is 25, so it was a battle until the ball dropped in favor of For The Watch. With both teams carrying over their momentum into the second set, Dodgeball shrugged off their loss in the first and came back to win 21-19, forcing a third set. The match was tied 1-1, and both teams rallied like it was their last time on the court forever. It was a close last set, but in the end Dodgeball came out on top, 12-15. Talk about starting off with a bang!
The second games of the evening had a couple double headers. Suck My Dink had a chance to redeem themselves and try to grab a win for the night against Dodgeball, but Dodgeball was too hot to handle and sent Suck My Dink home with their second loss for the night. Balls and Spikes Make Everything Nice had their double header against Setsy Sixers. It was a decent cha cha between the two teams, but Setsy Sixers need to step their game up if they want to tango with the best. Balls and Spikes Make Everything Nice was able to redeem themselves and pulled out a win, making their record 1-1. How I Set Your Mother tried to catch Cash Me Outside over on court three, but was unsuccessful. Cash Me Outside took the match in two sets…HOW BOUT DAH?!!?
Last but not least, we had That’s What She Set play Spike It Like Cosby on court one, and Setsy Sixers throw it down against Notorious D.I.G. on court two. That’s What She Set taught Spike It Like Cosby a swift lesson in two sets and said they don’t take drinks from strangers! Notorious D.I.G. basically had Setsy Sixers calling them “Big Poppa” by the end of their match, and took them down in two sets as well. Setsy Sixers is now the underdog with a record of 0-2, can they redeem themselves next week?
After league play, the courts are open for pick up volleyball. Put your shirts on the net early because Austin Sports and Social Club volleyballers can’t get enough! We’re here all night!!
