SUNBROOK clinched the Moon & Sons-sponsored KwaDukuza Volleyball Association First Division League Knockout Cup after hammering Frendz (2-0) in a one-sided final played at the association courts on Wednesday night.

Midway into the 1st set Frendz held a narrow 12-10 lead with Shane Ramraj and Alvin Moonsamy keeping the score-board ticking. Calvin Ganasen and Nishen Govender quickly snuffed out the deficit to give Sunbrook a 21-16 lead.

Frendz tried desperately to stop Sunbrook in their tracks, but the left-handed Lee Perumal guided Sunbrook to a comfortable 25-18 win.

Aaron “The Bullet” Marie immediately made his presence felt after coming on as a substitute for Leon Naidoo at the start of the 2nd set to give Sunbrook a commanding 9-3 lead. The superb blocks of Leon Ramsamy frustrated the Frendz attackers, who watched in disbelief after attack-upon-attack fell at their feet.

With Sunbrrok enjoying a comfortable 20-11 lead, setter Suman Chetty relished conditions, experimenting with his reverse sets which found Perumal on successive occasions, who buried the ball with each attack. The unforced errors by the Frendz outfit at the death resulted in their 25-13 demise.

President of KwaDukuza Volleyball Association, Isaac Abraham congratulated Sunbrook on their outstanding feat and thanked Devan Moonsamy (CEO of Moon & Sons) for his generous R2 500 sponsorship.

In the playoffs for 3rd spot, defending champions Darnall United salvaged some lost pride after beating Manor Old Boys (MOB) in straight sets (25-15; 25-23).

Meanwhile, Sunbrook continued their rich vein of form, extending their lead at the top of the KDVA First Division League after beating Cool Leaders in straight sets (25-23; 25-22) on Thursday night. Darnall scraped to a nail-biting 27-25; 18-25; 15-10 win against MOB.

In the EZE’S Electrical-sponsored KDVA Premier League, Grove End maintained their unbeaten record after beating Randsons 25-22; 25-14 on Thursday night. KSST avenged their defeat after snatching a thrilling 25-20; 19-25; 15-11 win against Warriors Sport.
