LDF, Red Skins set for showdown

MASERU – The Lesotho volleyball heavyweights Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) and Red Skins are set for a showdown at the end of this month in the final of the third Lesotho Volleyball Association (LVA) tournament.

The LVA has divided the league campaign into four mini-tournaments that are played over the course of the year with the winner determined at the end of the fourth tournament.
The first two mini tournaments are done and dusted already and the points for all teams have been allocated. The final of the third tournament will be held in Hlotse, Leribe.
Red Skins was in the Pool A which they dominated by thrashing Mahlaseli 3-0 in the first game before overpowering Rovers and Limkokwing University by the same margin in their final group games.

Red Skins then cruised through the semi-finals by brushing Green Spikes aside without losing a single set.
LDF, on the other hand, beat Mazenod, Lesotho Mounted Police Service (LMPS) and Green Spikes in their group, though they did drop sets against LMPS and Green Spikes as they won both games 3-1.

However, LDF comfortably they saw off Mahlaseli in the semi-finals to set up a date with Red Skins.
The third tournament’s fifth and sixth placed teams will be determined by the result between LMPS and Rovers while Green Spikes and Mahlaseli will fight it out in the third and fourth play-off.
