This week Tendring VC's super 8 women's team took on London Pulsepoint Orcas in their third game of the season so far. With the Orcas currently standing in fourth place in the league.

In the first set our girls pushed the Orcas to 25-20. Consistent passing from the Tendring passing unit allowed the setter Jess Lane to distribute the ball well amongst her attackers.

The team entered the second set with a determined frame of mind. However a poor start from Tendring let the Orcas run away, with them reaching the technical timeout first. After this the ladies put up a good fight to level the game. The two teams looked strong as they matched each other's points. Unfortunately Tendring again missed out, losing 25-21.

The third set brought Tendring many unforced errors which led to an extremely difficult start for the ladies. This allowed the steady Orcas team to build a substantial lead. After being substituted on MVP, Fran Smith-Daye, brought Tendrings morale back up with excellent serves, scoring more than 2 aces for the team. Tendring put up a tough fight with their new found attitude. However the set was too far gone at this point. The third and final set was lost 25-18.

Tendring yet again put up a great fight, causing problems for the London Pulsepoint Orcas defence throughout the game. MVP Fran Smith-Daye commented "it's been hard losing the past few games but it's important for us to remember that we are a new team and we just need to build on our performance instead of dwelling on it". The team are thoroughly disappointed with this loss but are in high spirits for the next few matches with the hope that they can take their game to the next level.
