BARBADOS - volleyball


Date February 04, 2007 Compliments of the Nation News

THE LODGE BOYS are the new NSC/Super Centre Interschool Volleyball Knockout champions!

Demonstrating their theme of Fighting Back, The Lodge boys exacted revenge on Harrison College at the Barbados Community College gym to win the crown 25-23, 27-29, 15-10, in three sets of entertaining play.

During the league The Lodge defeated Harrison College in the preliminaries to enter the finals, but lost it, as one of their key players, Shamarh Brooks, was on tour with the national cricket team. Once again Brooks was absent on cricket duty but Ronald Rice and Rico Brathwaite lifted their game to a level to deny College the double crown.

Unforced errors

After taking the first set in spite of outstanding performances from Best Spiker, Sheldon Roach and MVP Marcus Greene, Lodge looked in line to take the match in straight sets.

However, both teams then committed a spate of unforced errors to extend the set beyond the 25-points finish.

With Greene and Roach averting game and match points with their bold attacking on four occasions, but Rice and Brathwaite also had to avert match point for The Lodge. However, poor serving and defence by The Lodge also allowed the league kings to keep the match open.

A service ace by Most Improved Player, Ramon Husein saw College taking the set, 29-27, much to the delight of their large group of supporters. Unfortunately, the College lads started the deciding set too flat and The Lodge rushed to an 8-3, advantage when the teams switched court sides.

Late bid College then earned a couple of easy points to make a late bid at 5-9, but Brathwaite, who was voted Best Defender, and Rice who picked up the Best Setter title re-ignited The Lodge's momentum to cruise to the knock-out victory.

Earlier in the evening, Barbados Community College (BCC) girls completed the double by stopping Springer Memorial in the finals 25-23, 27-25. BCC's MVP, Sasha Best; Best Spiker, Akilah Phillips and Best Blocker, Alicia Smith, were almost stunned by the fight of the Springer team wich boasted a group of national netballers, basketballers and athletes.
