Two winners walk off the court

 

Two winning teams walked off the court on the evening of Oct. 29 when Nordheim Lady Pirates played Yorktown Kitty Kats in Yorktown.
 
Yorktown played with great intensity putting into practice what had been learned all season preparing for the playoffs and won easily in three games: 25-10, 25-5, 25-5.
 
For the Lady Pirates they certainly lacked ability as for many of them it was their first year playing. They lacked the achievement in terms of wins. But when it came to quality, this team excelled. They too put into practice what they had learned all season.
