Dominica tops Group B with win over St. Kitts/Nevis


St. Johns, Antigua, November 24, 2012- The fight for pole position in Group B was won by Dominica over St. Kitts/Nevis by 3 sets to one (25-16; 25 -21,22-25 and 25 22 ) as  the East Caribbean Volleyball Association Senior Women Championship entered it semifinal stage.

Dominica appeared the more hungry team evidence by high energy and defensive commitment that carried them to victory.


Coach Albert Loblack of Dominica  continued in his confident vein. "It appeared as if it was a case of who wanted it more and we proved to be more ready, apart from the third set where we lost focus and allowed St. Kitts/Nevis  back in the game. I must commend them however for displaying true grit in defense," he said.


His opposite number in Steadroy Collins blamed the loss on game composure. "I think we were too excited and too hyped coming into the game and hence rushed our game in the early parts. Added to that our usual attack was definitely off," he reported.


Captain Antoinette Henry was optimistic despite the defeat." All is not yet lost. We have been in this position before and came out victors and we intend to do the same thing," she promised.


Dominica advances as group B winner and St. Kitts/Nevis advances as Group B runner up in other group B action, St. Vincent won the battle for pride and   bragging rights over Grenada  3-0  (25-21, 25 -19 and  25-18) neither made it to the knock out stages but left  the tournament promising improved performances  the next time around..
