Barbados rally to beat Suriname in CAZOVA Under-19

SPANISH TOWN, Jamaica, July 24, 2019 - Barbados recovered from a set down to beat Suriname 3-1 in the Caribbean Zonal Volleyball Association (CAZOVA) boys' Under-19 championships at GC Foster College Wednesday morning.

The Bajans overpowered their opponents with serves throughout the match to come away 10-25, 25-22, 25-13, 25-21 victors that enabled them to win their first two matches and hand Suriname their first loss in three matches.

Barbados' coach Alwyn Oxley said, "it is the confidence in the guys that enabled us to win. I always try to teach them to be confident in whatever they want to do on the court. We started the game slow and Suriname is a team that you can't really start slow with, but the confidence in the guys allowed them to recover.

Coach of Suriname, Getrouw Verdy, said, "our reception was bad. It was very poor and basic. If we don't receive, we can't win. Barbados was better and probably the service from them was pretty strong."
