Honduras breezes past Grenada
POINTE-A - PITRE, Guadeloupe June 15, 2013 - Honduras waltz past
Team Grenada in three straight sets (25-11, 25-11, 25-8) to win
their second game in quick succession. In doing so the Hondurans
remain on course to achieve their number one objective and that
is to top NORCECA Group N Qualification Tournament towards FIVB
Men’s World Championship.
Honduras did well to spread their offence and Luis Matamoros was
the leading scorer in the game with 9 points.
"It was another tough game but I think our team gelled even
better than the first game and that accounted for the wider
margins of the scores," assessed Honduras team captain Luis
After congratulating the opponents the coach of the Grenada
team, Raphel Brathwaite was regretful when he reported that it
was the worst possible time to play against the Central American
"We have had some injuries to key players and so three of our
regular players could not start. Notwithstanding that, it was
the service game of Honduras that posed the most problems for
us. We are really not accustomed to the short service and once
we could not handle that, our game fell apart badly," he said.
Honduras seems on course for topping the group unless Guadeloupe
has other ideas. The two will meet twice on Sunday with the
playoff game having the real meaning.
