Super Six captain Sahid Tarawllie wants his teammates to be in full readiness as they bid to wrestle for the Western Area Volleyball championship title with the defending champions and tournament favourite, Young Stars.
The two sides will face each other on 19 June at the National Stadium Volleyball Court in Freetown, in what has been predicted to be an exciting and entertaining battle with high expectation of exceptional volleyball skills on display.
Despite having the favourite tag on their backs and boasting of the Africa U-19 and Youth Olympic qualifying Beach Volleyball champions in the persons of Patrick Lombi and Abubakarr I Kamara, Tarawllie still believes they can do the unbelievable come Sunday.
He said: “No doubt about it we are well determined and have trained so hard to achieve that on Sunday. It has been a long journey for us and reaching this far we will not want the title to slip away.”
It is the first time in the history of the tournament that Super Six have made it to the final and captain Tarawllie hopes that hard work will not go in vain.
“The historic victory against RSLAF was a special motivation for us, that special victory is what is spurring us for the title,” the former Ahmadiyya Secondary school volley baller says.
Young Stars defeated Super Six 3-1 (25-14, 25-14; 20-25 and 25-21) in their last meeting during the semi-final and Abu Bakarr Kamara believes they can still repeat the same fate and retain their title.
He said: “We know it is going to be hard, we are going to the finals with a different approach to retain our title.”
In the female final, Sixers will be keen to end Young Stars female team dominance in the championship. Since its inception, Stars are seven times champions after winning the title five in a row, including last year’s championship.
