Bangkok, Thailand, January 24, 2021 – Police SC captured the 2020-2021 Qatar Senior Men’s Volleyball League to make it three times in a row and the fourth in the club’s history after the indomitable side routed Al-Khor in straight sets at the QVA Hall on Saturday, volleyball.qa reported.
Police’s title defence turned into a possible mission following their comfortable match against Al-Khor, which they won 25-16, 25-16, 25-13, to reap unassailable 43 points. Vennon Oliver scored a match-high 16 points for the winners, with Robson Van Der Maas bagging 11 points for Al-Khor. Qatar SC and Al Arabi are on 36 and 31 points respectively.
This season, Police made a remarkable run to go down only one match to Al-Rayyan in hard-fought five-set thriller on January 10, to later beat Al-Shamal on January 16 and Al-Khor on Saturday, January 23.
This is the fourth time that Police have lifted the Qatar Volleyball League title after winning their maiden title in the 2016-2017 season. Police won the remaining three seasons in 2018-2019, 2019-2020 and 2020-2021.
In the previous season, Police brushed off Al-Arabi 3-0 in the 18th round of the League to reign supreme. The resumption of the competition came after the halt in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Police SC also claimed additional two silver medals in two major domestic tournaments after going down to Al-Arabi in the final clash in the 2019-2020 3rd Qatar Men’s Championship and the last November’s Amir Cup.
For the victory, Police, coached by Argentine Damian Arredendo, received the cash prize of QR250,000 and plaque.
Qatar Volleyball Association President Mr Ali Bin Ghanem al-Kuwari and Brigadier General Khaled Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah, Police Sports Federation President, jointly presided over the awards presentation on Saturday.
