Knockout kings Progressive survive scare
KNOCKOUT KINGS Barbados Bearings Progressive came from a set down to beat Foundation United 22-25, 25-19, 25-22, 26-24 to begin their quest for a sixth double crown title when the Goddard Enterprises Limited Division One volleyball league served off Sunday at the Wildey Gymnasium.
With setter Kemar Hinds inexplicably absent and key veteran Fabian Cox sitting in the stands, Progressive looked suspect against Foundation’s attack of Darien Seale, Shamar Bishop and Paul Doughty.
However, Rico Brathwaite seized the chance to co-star in a feature performance along with the confident Akeem Payne as they, along with 6’5” Chioke Holder, denied Foundation the space to score an upset.
Foundation once again showed how adept they are at throwing away winning advantages in the second set and more so in the fourth, slipping from 23-18 and 24-22 to lose that set and the match. (KB)
