Fifers strode to a 5-0 lead and Spikers fight back with McGinley’s musketeers leading 13-7 at full time.

Fifers then met league leaders Mental Eagles and found themselves wanting as they crashed to a 12-25 defeat.

The second set saw the Fifers rally and edge out the league leaders 25-20 setting up another third set decider.

The Fife side stormed ahead 7-1 but an amazing come-back from Eagles saw them claw back to a two point difference before time was called, Fifers leading 10-8.
