Barbados, Suriname to contest CAZOVA Under-19 final

SPANISH TOWN, Jamaica, July 25, 2019 - Barbados and Suriname will contest the final of the Caribbean Zonal Volleyball Association (CAZOVA) boys' Under-19 championships after they record identical 3-1 victories over United States Virgin Island (USVI) and Jamaica respectively on Thursday at GC Foster College of Physical Education and Sport.


Against Jamaica, the Bajans were superior in both attack and defence, as they peppered their hosts with powerful serves and spikes, while consistently blocking their shots to record set scores of 25-18, 25-17, 19-25.


The Jamaicans also assisted in their own demise, as they committed numerous serving and spiking errors and combined with the assault by the Bajans, were befuddled at different stages of the match.


It was the third victory for Barbados as earlier in the tournament they defeated Trinidad and Tobago 3-0 (25-14, 25-14, 25-21) and Suriname 3-1 (10-25, 25-22, 25-13, 25-21) and remained the only unbeaten team in the competition. They will close out their fixture on Friday when they tackle the United States Virgin Islands.


Suriname, on the other hand, on Thursday, combined finesse with power to overcome the USVI 25-19, 20-25, 25-19, 25-12. It was their third win of the tournament after victories over Jamaica 3-0 (25-16, 25-20, 25-20) and Trinidad and Tobago 3-0 (25-19, 25-15, 25-15). They also lost to Barbados.
