Barbados men get silver at CVC


Barbados could not make it 11 titles at the Caribbean Volleyball Championships earlier today when they fell in four sets to hosts Trinidad and Tobago in the gold medal match at the Jean Pierre Complex in Port of Spain.
Unlike the first match between these two when the Bajans came from a set down to win in four, Barbados actually won the first set, but lost 22-25, 25-23, 25-18, 25-19.
To add injury to insult, Barbados also lost captain and setter Alain London in third set. Trailing 15-21, London went off court to chase a ball and appeared to injure his ankle.
Back up setter Ronald Rice proved his worth off the bench, but the Barbados men were outplayed in virtually every facet of the game.
In the bronze medal match, The Bahamas defeated Curaçao (no scores available).
Earlier, the Barbados women finished fourth, losing to Suriname 25-12, 25- 22, 25-15.
