Bridgetown, Barbados, December 9, 2015 - Vice captain Adam Niles brought the thunder and Ahkeem Mayers along with Carlos Cyrus added the lightning as defending champions Barbados boys blasted Haiti in the 10th CAZOVA Junior championships on Day Three at the Wildey Gymnasium, Bridgetown.
Haiti had shocked the large Gym of supporting spectators to lead Barbados 8-3 in the first set. But, after Niles launched the counter, the Bajans out spiked and out blocked their French rivals to silence their aggression and their fans 25-17, 25-11, 25-12.
With setter Paul Doughty running a smooth offense, Barbados' middles Shamar Bishop and Shevin Blades also enjoyed a great attacking and blocking game. Coach John Stuart savoured the luxury of giving court time to all of his player with captain Andriy Stapleton playing a restrained game as he was carrying a slight injury.
Both Cyrus and Mayers scored 11 points each for Barbados with Niles contributing seven as Judenel Paul with 11 points and Love Cothiere, 7, vainly tried to match the hosts. Barbados dominated in spikes, 28-16, 9-2 in blocks and 8-2 in serves.
Barbados are to cap the final day of preliminary action with a match against Martinique.
