Bermuda on course to reach semi-finals in Antigua

Bermuda's volleyball team in action in Antigua at the Eastern Caribbean Tournament

Bermuda’s men’s volleyball team look set to reach the semi-finals of the Eastern Caribbean Tournament despite suffering their first loss in pool A in yesterday’s second day of competition in Antigua.

Having overcome Anguilla and the hosts in Thursday’s opening round of matches, Bermuda were aiming to build on momentum against Grenada, who had also won both their first two games.

However, Grenada proved too strong as they eased to a 3-0 victory, winning 25-20, 25-22, 27-17.

In their second match of the day, Bermuda bounced back in spectacular style, brushing aside Saint Kitts & Nevis in straight sets, to win 25-15, 25-22, 27-25.

The previous day, the team got off to a strong start, beating Anguilla in three sets 25-15, 25-22, 27-25. Their second match against Antigua & Barbuda proved a far more hard-fought encounter.

Bermuda lost the first two sets 22-25, 20-25 but fought back to take the next two sets 27-25, 28-25 to force the match into a deciding fifth set which they won in thrilling fashion, 15-11.

Bermuda looked set to finish second in pool A and set up a semi-final encounter against the winners of pool B, scheduled for today.
