Zabeel were the better side and they made an early impression while excelling in offence and defence from the start.

Though they seemed to struggle to get their combination right in the first set, they gradually improved in the second with some attacking play led by their foreign player Hashmi Mohammed Mahdi.

The third set was more of a formality despite Axiom putting up a late fight. But Zabeel kept their cool to win the set and match.

The second match of the night was a lop-sided affair with the Commandos putting up a late resistance after losing the first two sets.

They led in the third set 14-10, but with Ali Mohammed and man of the match Humaid Al Neyadi in full flow, Dream Dubai bounced back and drew level at 16-16 to win the deciding third set and the match.

Meanwhile, the third edition of this annual tournament officially got under way on Sunday with the attendance of Sheikh Ahmed Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, President of the UAE National Olympic Committee (UAE NOC) at a glittering opening ceremony.
