Victory in three straight sets 25-20, 25 -8 and 25-20 gave Bermuda third place over St. Maarten in the play off stage of the 2014 FIVB World Championship Qualification Women Round I Group D.
Bermuda’s 3rd place finish qualifies them for the second round of the FIVB World Championship Qualification which will take place in May 2013, but they will miss out on the ECVA competition as only the first two teams qualify.
Following the game Bermuda captain Latasha Mills was near tears as she felt that it was not their best effort. “We have to take the game more seriously and put in the real work on the training ground before coming to these tournaments.”
Briana Scott of Bermuda and Captain Lathasha Mills of St. Maarten both had 10 points to be the top scorers of the game
Bermuda Head Coach, Juanita Blee was extremely satisfied with the outcome. This victory means a great deal to the programme for the young girls to come and get some experience. During the game we got into a groove and played well as a unit.
