EXPECTED RESULTS IN the Goddard Enterprises Limited senior volleyball knockouts almost turned into a casualty when the men’s action wound down on Thursday night at Oldbury.
Firstly, two-time defending champions Barbados Bearings W. Gittens Progressive turned up with a depleted team and were defeated by Foundation United 22-25, 25-19, 20-25, 27-25, 15-17. That was Foundation’s first win of the knockouts, but a repeat of their first-game stunner over Progressive in the league.
While Shamar Bishop and the Callender twins Chad and Brandon played well for Foundation in their final hurrah, Progressive shockingly threw away their advantages in the fourth and fifth sets with a recurring nightmare as the game ended with him being blocked five straight times. (KB)
