BJSS spike their way to second Malaysian league crown
SERDANG: Defending champions Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS) retained the Malaysian Volleyball League men’s title by defeating Majlis Bandaraya Shah Alam (MBSA) 25-18, 20-22, 25-22, 25-23 in the final at the Subang Jaya Municipal Council Stadium yesterday.
BJSS coach Zulyadi Zakaria said the victory was sweeter this time as they faced tougher opponents en route to the title.
“It’s great to win again. MBSA played an attacking game and our strategy was to strengthen our defence and it worked,” he said.
University Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) defeated Bomba Malaysia 15-25, 25-9, 20-25, 25-23, 15-10 to take third place.
In the women’s competition, E-Globex turned the tables on City Rangers Volleyball Club to clinch the title, thus avenging their 3-0 defeat earlier in the league.
E-Globex won 25-10, 26-24, 21-25, 25-22.
BJSS beat Sibu 26-24, 22-25, 25-19, 25-17 for the bronze.
