Paralympics GB sitting volleyball team well beaten by Dutch
Emma Wiggs and her Paralympics GB sitting volleyball team-mates go into tomorrow evening's clash with Japan knowing they need a win to keep their semi-final hopes alive after being well beaten by the Dutch this afternoon.
Following their 3-0 defeat to Ukraine in yesterday's opener, the Rickmansworth player would have been hoping for better in her side's second match in Pool A of the preliminaries.
But the world's fourth best side showed their class against the Paralympic debutants from the outset, taking the first set 25-13.
GB did rally by taking an early lead in the second but their opponents again proved too strong as they moved 2-0 up by winning 25-12.
It was a similar story in the third set as Britain looked a but stronger early on before their fate was sealed 25-15.
