USVI and TTO advance to CAZOVA Under-18 semis

SPANISH TOWN, Jamaica, July 25, 2019 - United States Virgin Islands (USVI) advanced to the semi-finals of the Caribbean Zonal Volleyball Association girls' Under-18 tournament with a 3-1 victory over Guadeloupe on Thursday at GC Foster College of Physical Education and Sport.

USVI had set scores 25-21, 25-10, 20-25, 25-15 and will meet Barbados in the semi-finals at the same venue on Friday. The final is set for Saturday.

Trinidad and Tobago defeated Jamaica 3-0 to advance to the semi-finals of the Caribbean Zonal Volleyball Association girls' Under-18 tournament at GC Foster College Thursday evening.

The Trinidadians dominated their opponents all areas of the sport, as the host offered little resistance and eventually succumbed with set scores of 25-22, 25-17, 25-13.

Trinidad and Tobago will play Suriname in one semi-final with Barbados meeting the United States Virgin Island (USVI) in the other. Both will be played on Friday morning at the same venue.

Jamaica's best set of the match was the first in which they started slowly but recuperated in the middle and at the end to put respectability to the score.

In the second and third set, however, despite the egging of the crowd, the Jamaicans faltered badly, giving up unforced errors with serves and spikes and also left a number of balls, which dropped inside the court.
