THE unbeaten run of Marist in the Digicel Suva Volleyball League has finally come to an end.
The second string side lost to Jammers by three straight sets in the final super premier grade challenge match at the FMF Gymnasium in Suva yesterday.
The regular Marist side took part in the Asia Pacific Volleyball Championship in New Zealand where it finished third after beating the Tahiti national side in the playoff.
In the premier challenge match, Red Faith 1 retained the cup beating Blackout 1 3-1.
“The last of the league rounds ended today (yesterday) with Tamavua Bulls topping the points table, followed my Marist and Saints in the super premier grade,” Suva Volleyball Association secretary Sam Rabuku said.
“In the premier grade, Red Faith 1 topped the points table followed by Blackout 1 and Makoi.
“It was only disappointing that the women did not turn up otherwise the men teams had a good turnout after the Easter weekend and the games ran smoothly.”
