Mayo Volleyball Club have defeated Garda 3-0 in St. Louis Community School.

Claremorris native Edel Nolan had an inspiring display with numerous impenetrable shots which the away side could not deal with. Mayo's early onslaught delivered a commanding 25-12 win in the first set.

Garda showed much defensive improvement in the next set. This, coupled with the fact that the home side missed 5 serves provided a much closer game. Midway through the set Mayo exploited the weakness in Garda's defence behind the middle block and pushed ahead to win the set 25-17.

In the third set there was much tit for tat scoring between both sides. At the latter stage however the red and green made switches. The combination of Edel Nolan and Jackie Prendergast's hitting with Orla Casby and Hilde Kneblewski stellar defended made the difference in the end as Mayo won the set 25-21 and the game 3-0. 

That is now 2 league wins in 3 for Mayo who's next outing is a home game against Santry on Saturday November 24th at 1pm.
