Kada Kings and COAS Spikers recorded their first wins on Day 2 at the ongoing Nigeria Volleyball League Division One in Bauchi.
Kada Kings lost to ABM of Katsina 3-2 (25-17, 19-25, 25-23, 22-25, 15-12) while COAS Spikers lost scandalously to Nigeria Correction boys formerly known as Prisons 3-0 (25-19, 25-22, 25-14) on Day one of the division one league.
Kada Kings came back from a set down to beat Niger Brass 3-1(27-29, 25-20, 25-14, 25-20) while Nigeria Army struggled to beat Offa Volleyball Club 3-2 (25-22, 20-25, 23-25, 25-21, 15-11) in a highly tensed match on Day 2.
Speaking after the game, head coach of Kada Kings, Sani Mohammed said the coaching crew strategized against Niger Brass and the result was favourable.
Mohammed said losing against Nigeria Correction Boys was disastrous adding that his players have learnt their lessons.
He said, “Our first match was unfortunate because the team who defeated us is not up to the standard of Niger Brass but we lost.
“The team drew a new strategy and came out fully to face Niger Brass. During the training session in the morning, the coaching crew motivated the boys and you can see the result against Niger Brass; we also noticed the weak points of our opponent and capitalised on it”.
