Jamaica stop USVI 3-1 in CAZOVA Under-19

SPANISH TOWN, Jamaica; July 23, 2019 - Host Jamaica defeated the United States Virgin Island (USVI) 3-1 to record their first victory in the Caribbean Zonal Volleyball Association boys' Under-19 tournament at GC Foster College of Physical Education and Sport.

Jamaica were rebounding from their opening 3-0 (25-16, 25-20, 25-20) loss against Suriname on Monday and had set scores of 25-13, 25-11, 23-25, 25-13.

The Jamaicans had a much improved all-round game on Tuesday as they blocked and spiked with purpose.

Jamaica's head coach Steve Davis said, "we still have things to work on, we still have things to do and the players will get better as the tournament progresses. We didn't have many service errors and we scored better. We scored our points when we got the chance."

USVI's coach Isaac Raphael said, "this morning we had our first practice ever, together as a team so I am actually pretty excited about the performance. We are very inexperienced, we are a young team, so they will get better and I am looking to see great things in the future."
