WA Pearls and Hornets round 5

The WA Pearls and Hornets traveled away to Melbourne for round 5 of the Australian Volleyball League (AVL). Both teams squared up against the Victorian Volleyball Academy (VVA) on Saturday the 7th and Sunday the 8th of November.

The Pearls had two long 5 set matches showing some strong fight and aggressive play at times but weren’t consistent enough and fell short in both 5th sets.
