Three teams stand up for the count

A tense, seven-game knockout competition on October 14 at the CNVLD Kien Khleang

National Disability Sports Court, saw the Pailin Austcare Hawks, the Takeo ISPP /

Templestowe Falcons and the Canada Kampong Speu Bears Stand Up for the count, retaining

their places in the 2006 competition and guaranteeing their spots in the 2007 A League.

Despite spirited performances, the Germany Kampot Crocodiles, Heidelberg Kratie Dolphins,

Veal Thom Medico Wild Oxen, Kampong Chhnang Hagar Rhinos and Sisophon Ockenden -

Kadoorie Cranes have now been eliminated from the 2006 Competition and will form

the core of the all-new 2007 National Volleyball B League. They will be joined by

three new teams in 2007 which will be established during the off season in Anlong

Veng and Pursat along with a second club in Pailin. The CNVLD salutes their efforts

in 2006 and looks forward to welcoming them back to the B League in 2007.

The ten remaining teams will battle it out in the second knockout phase, on October

21-22, to decide which six will progress to the quarterfinals on November 18. All

sights, however, are set on the prestigious places in the Cambodian National Volleyball

League Competition Finals to be held on December 3 (International Disability Day)

at the Olympic Stadium.

Will Phnom Penh Sunway Dragons stand up as champions for the fifth year in a row

or will the DHL Siem Reap Eagles swoop in for the kill? Can the new kids on the block,

Pailin, cause the upset of the season or will the old guard close ranks?

There's only one way to see which Cambodian Athletes with a Disability are most Deter-Mined

and that's to get to the games.
