Antigua/Barbuda Coach, Fitzroy Benjamin enthusiastically comment. “From the moment we saw them play the first game, we knew that they were not at the level to really compete at this level, so we choose the opportunity to give most of our younger players more playing time and we were still able to win comfortably,” he reported.
Earlier, Antigua/Barbuda were made to really work when they persevered in five sets against Anguilla, 25—16, 14—25, 20—25, 25—13, and 15—10.
