Bridgetown, Barbados, December 9, 2015 - Curaçao guaranteed a playoff spot in the 10th CAZOVA Junior championships with a marathon five setter win over Guadeloupe on Day Three of action at the Wildey Gym, Bridgetown.
With three players making double figure contributions, Curaçao took the match 25-27, 25-16, 25-11, 16-25, 15-12. Anais Conradus with 15 points, Giani Hooi with 14 and Sharneska Esclodina with 12 squeezed out the close Group C victory.
The match was the first which went the full distance as both teams battled one minute short of two hours.
Remyka Boudine countered with 15 points comprising 10 kills and four aces while Ysiah Viellot added 10 points for Guadeloupe who desperately needed the win to advance in the top two. Guadeloupe have ended with one win and two losses with the United States Virgin Islands looking the likely first or second qualifier from that Group.
The USVI were to end their preliminary games later in the day with a match against the defending champions, Martinique.
