GTC/PM 1 wins Trophy Stall Volleyball competition in Berbice
Sunday the youthful GTC/PM Volleyball Team defeated Rollers of New Amsterdam to capture the first place trophy when the Berbice Volleyball Association held the 2nd annual Trophy Stall Competition for teams in Berbice.
The win emerged after a defeat suffered last month at the same venue (GTM Court in New Amsterdam) when the two teams clashed in the BVA Independence Competition. The GTC/PM 1 Team played brilliantly
all day in the blistering sunshine during the round robin stage of the competition and turned up the passion in the final with excellent spiking by Creston Rodney and Quacy Matherson to edge at Rollers 25 -23 in a game that was really a cliffhanger that had the small crowd of spectators all “fired up”.
On their way to the final GTC/PM 1 swept aside GTC/PM 2, 3 Door Strikers, Falcons, Port Mourant Jaguars 1 and 2. In the playoff for third place, Port Mourant Jaguars 1 defeated Falcons of Reliance 25-20.
At the presentation ceremony held immediately after the completion of competition, President of the BVA, Gregory Rambarran thanked the sponsor, Mr. Ramesh Sunich for sponsoring bigger and better trophies for 2012 and the Manger of GTM for affording the Association the use of the hardcourt.
He also thanked the officials (referees and linesmen) from participating teams and congratulated the winners and outstanding players.
The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers received Trophies and volleyballs, while medals for outstanding performances went to MVP –Creston Rodney of GTC/PM, Outstanding Service –Errol Chase of Rollers and Surendra Motiepersaud of PM Jaguars, Julius Seenarine of PM Jaguars and Sean Wilson of Rollers for good spiking. Navin Yadram of 3 Door Strikers of D’Edward received volleyball for his good performance.
