Default The Serve and Side-Out Order

The Serve, a Side-Out Order, and Five Hit Play Volleyball /Soccer

Undefeated and Master Blaster

No-Use and the Islanders remain undefeated in this season’s Rocball round robin competition. And, Val Taisakan of the Islanders is this year’s first “Master Blaster”. Val scored a “jam” Saturday night in the game against No-Mercy to complete the conditions of earning the title. Of the techniques to score in heavy hitting, the jam is the most difficult.

A jam is a play where a person at the net can knock down a served ball just as it is about to cross over the net, and score a court point with one or less opponents touching the ball before the ball lands on the court.

Team No-Use came out of last weekend’s game as an undefeated team in this year’s Rocball games. Evenflow, Islanders and No-Use were the three undefeated teams in Rocball after the Try-Outs knocked off No-Mercy in last week’s games.

The game between the undefeated started off well for Evenflow. No-Use won the serve but Evenflow scored the first point and then scored a three point goal on volley off their first serve to jump out to a 4-0 lead in the first set. No-Use came back and scored a two point backcourt kee off Evenflow’s second serve and then caught on fire, and went on to win first set 18 to 6.

The second set between the undefeated was a long fought out victory for Evenflow. Evenflow and No-Use went back and forth with the lead in the second set up to point 13. Evenflow and No-Use were tied at point 13 when a xunk serve caught No-Use flatfooted and off balance. The xunk dropped No-Use to 11 points and put the momentum of play with Evenflow. Evenflow went on to win the second set 25 to 19.

Evenflow’s second set win proved to be their best play of the game. Because, No-Use dominated the rest of the game with a 20 to 8 win in the third set and 19 to 8 win in the fourth set to stop Evenflow from forcing them into OT and juiced-out with a 75 to 47 game winning score.

The heavy hitter of this game was Sivas Awes of No-Use with 2 aces and 4 kees for 12 points. There were 8 aces, 4 xunks, and 17 kees scored in the game. No-Use made 1 block, 1 dig, 4 kills, and 1 shank. Evenflow made 1 block, 2 kills, 2 shanks, and 1 save.

The Serve, a Side-Out Order, and Five Hit Play

Local Boys beat Naturals

Both the Local Boys and Naturals were winless going into this game. And Naturals, despite shanking the first serves of possession twice at 11 points, drew first blood with an 18-11 first set win.

Naturals scored on set point after the Local Boys lost serve and a point off their only shank of the set.

In the second set, the Naturals were the only team that lost a point off a shank serve. The battle for the second set was a tight win for Local Boys at 18-17. In the third set, the Local Boys took charge and won it 20-12.

At the end of the third set, the game score was Local Boys 49 and Naturals 47. Both teams were in good position to win the game.

Local Boys only had to win the fourth set to juice-out and Naturals only had to win the fourth set with a three-point margin to win the game. But it was the Local Boys' night and they won the game off a dink at set point for a 18-14 fourth set score and the game.

The heavy hitter of the game was Typhoon Saito of Naturals with two aces and two kees for eight points. There were nine aces, 12 kees, and two goals scored. Naturals made a dig, 18 kills, and 10 shanks. Local Boys made three digs, four kills, and four shanks.

5 hits

One hit off the serve

Two hits to return a served ball

Each team will have 5 hits to score

Only the team in service has closure

Court scoring is one point

Aces are two points

"Kees" backcourt scoring is two points

Goals are three points. Goalie doesn't rotate

Quarter/set system to win

O-kon overtime rules

And, the FIVB only wished they had the flexibility

DID ANYONE EVER WONDER WHY VOLLEYBALL HAS NVER MADE IT AS A SPORT LIKE BASKETBALL, BASEBALL, OR FOOTBALL?

WHY ISN'T THIS TEAM NET SPORT A MAJOR ATTRACTION?

COULD IT BE BECAUSE OF IT'S RULES OF PLAY?

IS RALLYPOINT SCORING FOR SISSYS?

The Serve, a Side-Out Order, and Five Hits

Islanders beat No-Mercy

The Islanders, undefeated in their first two games of the round robin, and No-Mercy, coming off their first defeat of the year, played the last game on Saturday night.

In the first phase of Rocball in the 18-team elimination series, No-Mercy defeated the Islanders. But last Saturday proved to be a payback moment for the Islanders.:thumbup:

It started off bad for the Islanders as No-Mercy came out swinging and thrashed them in first set 19-10.

The Islanders seemed a little unnerved at the first set loss and shanked a first serve of the second set giving No-Mercy the present of the lead with an unearned rally point. No-Mercy took their present and turned it into a 9-3 lead before the Islanders were able to regroup and tie-up the score at 11-all.

The Islanders took the lead in the second set, 14-12, when Shane Yamada slammed in a goal to make the score, 15-14, in favor of No-Mercy. The Islanders came back and scored a kee and regained the lead, 16-15, but lost the lead on their next possession off a shank serve and put the score, 15-15.

No-Mercy wasn't able to capitalize off the Islanders' mistake and went into a slump as the Islanders broke through No-Mercy's defense with a couple of kills that won them second set, 18-15.

The Islanders found their groove and unscrambled the secret of No-Mercy's defense coming off the second set win. The Islanders fought their way to a juice-out win taking the third and fourth sets, 19-9 and 18-13, with a game score of 65-56.

The game saw the two teams score in all categories of Rocball-ace, xunk, jam, kee, goal with blocks, digs, kills, shanks, and saves. The heavy hitter of the game was Kaleo Olaitiman with four aces and a kee for 10 points. There were 10 aces, a xunk, a jam, 10 kees, and five goals scored.

No-Mercy made a block, a kill, and three shanks. Islanders made two blocks, a dig, three kills, and a save.

The Stats Are Out

Rocball has two “Master Blasters” this year, Val Taisakan of the Islanders and Eugene Solomon of team Evenflow. Both Val and Eugene have scored at least once of the five categories that separate a side-out system of scoring from rallypoint.

To earn the title of “Master Blaster” a player has to score at least one each of the two point serve called an ace, the two point serve called a xunk, the two point backcourt score called a kee, the three point goal, and the most difficult, the one point “jam”. The jam is a play where a receiving team player can knock down or jam a served ball just as it crosses over the net.

Myron Laniyo of No-Mercy is the season’s heavy hitter. Myron has scored 13 aces, 2 xunks, 29 kees, and 5 goals for 103 points not counting his kills, dinks, and court point scoring. Myron is last year’s MVP and “Master Blaster” but has yet to score a jam.

Myron Laniyo’s 29 kees is the leader in backcourt scoring and is tied with Ichnis Kapwich of team No-Use at 5 goals each. J.R. Gechig and Eugene Solomon of team Evenflow are tied for scoring 16 aces each. And, J.J. Neth and Julius Saito of the team called the Try-Outs are tied at scoring 3 xunks each.

In team statistics, Evenflow has scored 68 aces, the Try-Outs’ scored 10 xunks and is the best in the league for that kind of serve, team Evenflow is the best backcourt scoring team with 73 kees, and team No-Use leads in the 3 point scoring category with 12 goals.

And, even though team Evenflow came in 4th place for the semi-finals, they scored the heaviest with 68 aces, 6 xunks, 1 jam, 73 kees, and 8 goals for 318 points. The second best heavy hitting team was No Mercy with 56 aces, 4 xunks, 64 kees, and 10 goals for 278 points. No-Use came in third with 36 aces, 8 xunks, 69 kees, and 12 goals for 262 points. And, team Try-Outs in their first year playing Rocball came in fourth place with 60 aces, 10 xunks, 40 kees, and 7 goals for 241 points.

No-Use & Evenflow win Roc semi-openers

The Rocball team with the best win and loss record No-Use, and the number one Rocball scoring team Evenflow both won their first semi-final games against No-Mercy and the Try-Outs on Saturday at the MHS gym.

Team No-Use’s only defeat of the Rocball season came from No-Mercy on the last game of the round robin phase of the Rocball season. On Saturday night, No-Use juiced-out and defeated No-Mercy in four sets 88 to 71 in their first game of the semi-finals. And, No-Use only has to win the next game against N0-Mercy next Saturday night to advance into the best of 5 games for the World Title of Rocball.

No-Use won the first set of their game against No-Mercy 24 to 20. No-Mercy bounced back in the second set and won it 22 – 20. At half time the game score was 44 to 42 in favor of No-Use.

In the third set, No-Use got a big boost with five points scored off two plays that included a 3 point goal and a two point ace. No Use went on to win the third set 22 – 15. At the end of three sets of play No-Mercy was down by 9 points and needed to win the fourth set with a 10 point margin to win the game, or win the fourth set with less than a 10 point margin to force No-Use into overtime. But, No-Use closed down the game with a 22 – 14 set win and moved within one game of advancing to the championship finals.

In the game between Evenflow and the Try-Outs, the Try-Outs lost the first three sets 8 – 22, 21 – 17, and 21 – 18. The Try-Outs made improvements in every set and when it counted mos,t they won the fourth set 21 to 14 and blocked Evenflow from juicing out to win the game.

In the fourth set, the Try-Outs jumped out to a commanding 9 – 0 lead and Evenflow got caught stumbling over themselves with a series of shank serves. Evenflow would score a court point and then serve a shank to lose the point in four of their first plays of the fourth set. The Try-Outs won the fourth set 21 – 14 and forced the game into overtime.

The players of Evenflow are the most experienced overtime players in Rocball. They have played four overtime games and only lost once in that situation. In the first set overtime, Evenflow unchoked, served no shanks, and closed out the game 11 – 8.

On Saturday, January 26, N0-Use, No-Mercy, Evenflow, and the Try-Outs will play their second semi-final games. Evenflow and the Try-Outs will play will play at 6:30 pm, and No-Use and No-Mercy will play at 8:00 pm.

Does Team Evenflow have anything to do with Pearl Jam?

And if so, do they wear flannels while competing?

Don't know what a Pearl Jam is

But, we all live on the islands of the Pacific Rim, like Saipan of the Northern Mariana Islands, Chuuk, Pohnpei, Yap, Guam, Belau, Kosrae, the Marshalls etc. So, we don't need flannels. The low tempeture is around 78 degrees and it gets as high as 90 degrees, sometimes.

But, flannels can say a lot about a person's life style. You are a "buckeye' so I would imagine you are from the midwest. So you wear flannels in the winter to keep warm. But, what kind of flannels? That is the question! If your flannels are long johns with a flapper(back door), chances are you don't have indoor plumbing

And, that would be a shame, because I think they stop making Sears & Roebuck catalogs.
