U.S. MARINE CORPS FORCES, PACIFIC, CAMP H. M. SMITH, Hawaii --
Old-fashioned hustle led the “Aches & Pains” of U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Pacific to a best two-out-of-three match win against the U.S. Pacific Command T-Hawks in a intramural volleyball game here, May 22.
Aches & Pains started the game one man short, but maintained good teamwork and took the first game 21-18 and the second 21-14.
“We were lucky to gather enough players today to play,” said Sgt. Maj. Michael Berg, Aches & Pains player. “We put together good communication and hustle to make up for disadvantage.”
Aches & Pains made it seem like every bump, set and spike was scripted and planned before it happened, because they were in the right place at the right time more often than not.
“If we can get our six starters back, we’ll even be able to contend with [Special Operations Command], who are the team to beat,” said Berg. “Most of team has been absent due to mission requirements.”
Aches & Pains increased their record to 3-1 and the T-Hawks drop to 2-4.
All remaining regular season games will be held at the base gym at 11 a.m. and noon, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
