Cambridge VC & Anglia Ruskin University’s learning curve in the Volleyball England Super League continued in defeat to defending champions Tendring Women.

The team were short on numbers for the trip to Essex, which meant outsider hitter Amanda Carvalho Modesto had to switch to libero.

In the first set, Cambridge went into an early lead as the sides exchanged points but some big serves from the Tendring opposite attacker took them on a run of points to win 25-16.

Cambridge made a tactical change at the beginning of the second set as Laura Funk and Francesca Tantussi switched starting positions.

Just as they started to get ahead through some big swings from Agne Vaiciulyte, Tendring put in some powerful serves that Cambridge struggled to deal with and, combined with a dangerous slide attack, the hosts won the set 25-18.

Petra Lindovska replaced Funk at the start of the third set, and Vaiciulye was again scoring well. Another run of points from Tendring was matched by some big serves and hits from Cambridge in some long rallies.

But a couple of errors let the hosts in for a 25-20 win, to take the match 3-0. Vaiciulyte was named Cambridge’s most valuable player.
