If you could buy bottled momentum, then you’d want the stuff the Inverness Rebels had on Saturday.
Needing to win the rest of their matches after opening the Highland Region Division 1 girls volleyball tournament with a loss to the Sydney Academy Wildcats, the Inverness Rebels did just that to bring home the gold from the five-team tournament in Sydney Mines.
Reeling off three straight wins, the Rebels met the Wildcats again in the final, this time coming out on top 25-14, 20-25, 15-13.
“I’d much rather lose that first game than the last one,” quipped Rebels coach Angus Campbell.
