The stage is set for the Liquid Open volleyball championship finals at the Molepolole IHS hall courts tomorrow. Police VI men and women sides will be in the hunt to claim the title in both sections. The men's side face Kutlwano while their female counterparts have to go past Mafolofolo.

As things stand, there is nothing much that can stop the Police teams from grabbing the two titles. During the transfer window, Police women’s team signed quality players. However, Mafolofolo cannot be undermined as they have beefed up their attack by signing back Chada Majaha from Police. Police women’s coach, Thatayaone 'Shimaka' Ngwanaotsile is confident that his charges are ready to emerge from Molepolole with the trophy and gold medals.

He said preparations are going well although some of their key players are out injured and as such are taking precautions at all times at training. “It is my second final coaching the women’s team. I have been learning to work with women and I am coping though it was not an easy journey for me. What I can say is that we are playing the final game with Mafolofolo,” he said. Police beat Mafolofolo 3-0 during the group stages and Ngwanaotsile is aware of his opponents’ strength. “We worked on the mistakes that we committed in the previous match against Mafolofolo. We know it is not going to be an easy game,” Ngwanaotsile said. Mafolofolo coach, Boitumelo Botsang said they are ready for Police.
