Bridgetown, Barbados, December 8, 2015 - Curaçao boys almost guaranteed themselves a spot in the medal round by winning their second Group A match when Day Two of the CAZOVA junior championships continued at the Wildey Gym in Bridgetown today.

Playing a very strong attacking game Curaçao defeated the United States Virgin Islands in straight sets 26-28, 25-16, 25-16.  Leading the charge for the winners once again was outside attacker Shruendy Valeriano who was head and shoulders above everyone else with 11 exciting kills and eight vicious aces.

The USVI's best counter came from Miguel Lopez who hammered six kills and executed four blocks for his team.  However, USVI made too many unforced errors to be now holding a record of one win and one loss.

On Thursday, Day Four, Curaçao will play their final preliminary game which will be against Guadeloupe where a victory would see Curaçao topping the group unbeaten.  Guadeloupe like the USVI have one win and one loss.  On Thursday USVI will meet Aruba who are yet to win after two matches.
