Al-Rayyan and Police on Saturday registered their first wins in the semi-finals of the Amir Cup Volleyball Tournament at Qatar Volleyball Association Hall.
Al-Rayyan struggled to beat Al-Arabi in hard-fought five-set thriller (25-23, 23-25, 18-25, 25-19, 15-11), while Police brushed off Qatar in straight sets 25-18 25-22 25-21 in their best-of-three semi-final encounters.
Al-Rayyan will play Al-Arabi in their second clash on Monday and Police take on Qatar likewise on the same day. If Al-Rayyan and Police repeat the similar feat over their same rivals on Monday, both sides will then advance to the final showdown. However, in case two teams are tied (win 1, loss1) in semi-finals, a playoff match will be held to determine the winning team in the showdown on October 31.
