    Lycurgus shot off like a rocket against Limburg leader VC Limax, who came to visit the well-stocked Alfa-college sports centre. The number four in the Eredivisie until Saturday evening grabbed the visitors from Linne by the throat while playing well and did not let go in the first set. It therefore went quite easily to the Groningen team with 25-19.
