KSP had complete control of the match, dominating from the word go. Led by Nagesh, the KSP spikers rained one smash after another to take the first set 25-17.

The second set was only marginally different as Sports Hostel showing some bite in their game and managed to put up a little bit of resistance. If not for carelessness and several unforced errors, the Sports Hostel lads could have had a different tale to tell. Instead KSP showed good team play and held their nerve to take the second 25-19 as Sports Hostel’s total reliance on star spiker Pritham came unstuck.

Sports Hostel showed early promise in the third set and looked like they could push the match to a fourth set, only for KSP to bounce back and show their class and complete another easy win.
