Belize Downs Antigua & Barbuda for Third Spot

WILLEMSTAD, Curacao: For the second time in their two meetings, Tichele Solis was one of three players to score in double-digits as Belize overpowered Antigua & Barbuda in straight sets for third spot in their second round NORCECA Group J qualifiers for the 2014 FIVB Women’s World Championship in Italy on Sunday night. Playing in the penultimate match of the four-team tournament, Solis tallied 13 points, all spikes, while Shantell Arnold got 12, five of which were aces, and captain Sherylee Young-Thornton, 11 in their 25-16, 25-20, 25-18 victory in 61 minutes at the International School of Curacao Auditorium, Willemstad. It was the second win in as many meetings for 27th NORCECA ranked Belize over 19th ranked Antigua & Barbuda, after emerging 25-11, 18-25, 25-22, 25-13 victors when both teams met on Saturday’s opening day of competition. Going into the match, Antigua & Barbuda, the second ranked team in the Eastern Caribbean Volleyball Association (ECVA) behind fellow group opponents, St Lucia, was desperate to avenge the opening day loss, but yet again it was outplayed by a much more determine Belize unit which outscored its opponent, in spikes (31-15) and service aces (12-2). For Antigua & Barbuda, Kwansia Carr had a team best six points and Naheemah Wilson, five in the loss. Commenting after the match, Giselle Azar, Antigua and Barbuda captain noted the absence of some key players in the team affected their blocking and attack strength, which was two of their weak points during the two-day tournament. She added, “We still managed to step up our passing from the two previous matches and we played with a little more passion and energy, but it the end it was still not good enough and I credit Belize for their play. ”Young-Thornton, was delighted with the win by her Belize team to secure third spot. She said, “Coming into the tournament we had our target of a top two finish, but we were not able to get it and end the end, the experience of playing at this level against teams from the other zones that make up NORCECA was a great experience for us.” Antigua & Barbuda coach, Esron Gittens while admitting his team missed the services of some key players said he was still disappointed with the results as he thinks his team is much better than winning only set in four matches. Allan Sharp, coach of Belize said he was very proud of his team even though it missed out on a top two finish which would have secured an automatic qualification spot to the third round.


He added, “For us it was a great experience to play against the taller, stronger and more athletic teams than we normally do, because in Central America we are used to playing against the smaller players. Sharp also praised NORCECA for its vision in the way the qualifiers were set up whereby teams from different zones have to face each other. “As a team and federation, Belize is very happy for the great exposure we got because we know it will help us to improve in the future,” said Sharp. By finishing third Belize still has a chance to qualifying for the third round, but will need to do so as the best third place finisher from all six groups of the second round qualifiers. In Sunday’s final that followed host Curacao which topped the round-robin series with maximum 15 points came up against Eastern Caribbean Volleyball Association champions, St Lucia, with both teams already assured of qualification to the third round of qualification to Italy, When they met on Saturday morning, Curacao won 25-12, 25-22, 25-19.

Lianne Jamanika chipped in with nine, Geraldine Grigorius, eight, and Sonela Philips, six for Curacao which got the win in 56 minutes, the fastest of the competition. St Lucian captain, Natalie Edward and Indira Laurencin were the only real source of resistance for the St Lucians with eight and seven points respectively. From the opening set it was all Curacao as the host country stormed into a an 8-0 lead in the first before St Lucia got its first point of the match, and despite minor lapses in defence, the host won the first set with relative ease led by the four-prong attack of Anthony, Grigorius, Neysa Hooi and Jamanika The second set began the same way as the first with Curacao building a 9-4 lead before St Lucia closed to within two points at 12-10 after which the host stepped up its game and pulled away for another comfortable set victory. Faced with the difficult task of clawing its way back into the match, St Lucia never got going and was easily overpowered in the third set, handing Curacao the gold medal before its vociferous home spectators who had crammed into the venue. Speaking after the match, St Lucia captain Edwards said she felt her team never really turned up at the tournament and was no match for Curacao in the final. “We know we can play better than we did and to be honest it seems as though we were just surviving each match. Maya Gomez, captain of Curacao was full of praise for her team which she said played an excellent match.


“The girls have been training for a very long time and it’s nice to see that our hard work has brought reward. “Tonight’s final for us was not that difficult as we were very determine as a group to get the gold medal in front of our home crowd and in the end we were able to do that.” St Lucia coach, Florian Combie, first congratulated Curacao on a tournament well played noting it’s something his team can sure learn from. “We did not get the gold medal we wanted but second place also ensures that we qualify for the next round and we now have to regroup, encourage some players to rejoin the team and return as a stronger unit for the next round. An elated Henri Delfina, Curacao's coach noted his team’s journey to the gold medal was not that difficult as while St Lucia has a good team it has to improve technically. “With regards to Curacao I think we defended well and credit must be given to Neysa Hooi for having an excellent match while my setter, team captain Maya had her best match of the competition.” Stated Delfina.
