Suriname stop T&T 3-0 in CAZOVA Under-19


SPANISH TOWN, Jamaica, July 23, 2019 - Suriname defeated Trinidad and Tobago 3-0 in the Caribbean Zonal Volleyball Association (CAZOVA) boys' Under-19 tournament at GC Foster College Monday afternoon.


The Suriname players methodically took apart their opponents with skill and power, delicately placing the ball in open spaces, while hammering spikes to various parts of the court to win 25-19, 25-15, 25-15 and secure their second victory in the tournament.


Suriname had defeated host Jamaica 25-16, 25-20, 25-20 in their first match on the opening day Monday and now put themselves in a good position to qualify for the final, which will be played on Saturday.


Suriname's coach Gepouw Verdy said, "this one is much better than the first one. The total package today was much better. The most important thing is that they are improving and I am hoping that they can get even better."


Trinidad and Tobago's coach Peer Nasseir, said, "again too many errors. The errors weren't as bad as yesterday, but too many attacking errors as we weren't able to score effectively and Suriname were able to defend and counter-attack and then we weren't able to block them out."
