CHARBEEZ started the University of the South Pacific Islanders Volleyball Association round two competition on a high note with back to back victories on Saturday.

The round one table toppers in the women's competition beat Chips Red and Stingrays 2-0 respectively at the USP Gymnasium.

Men's competition champions from round one Chips Green also won both their matches but their victories were much easier.

Association official Maria Belo said they won their first match by default after Y2 failed to show up.

"They won their second match 2-1 against Surprise," she said.

"Y2 lost both their games by default including the one against Veiyanuyanu."

Meanwhile, Belo said a team from Sigatoka would travel to Suva every fortnight to compete in their games.

"Pixies from Sigatoka came today (Saturday) to play their games here.

"They don't have such facilities in Sigatoka and they were grateful to us for allowing them in our competition.

"We were excited to have them here with us because, firstly, it would spice up our competition and secondly, we are helping with the development of the game."

RESULTS:

Womens: Charbeez 2 Chips Red 0, Chips White 2 Stingrays 0, Chips Red WBD Chips Blue LBD, Charbeez 2 Stingrays 0.

Mens: Chips Green 2 Surprise 1, Pixies 1 Kingdom Knights 2, Chips Black 1 Crossroads 2, Revival 2 Surprise 0, Chips Black 1 Kingdom Knights 2, Pixies 2 Crossroads 0.
