Barbados won the first three matches against T&T who took the
sets up a final session on Saturday morning where Barbados and
Guyana meet to decide the title - as they did last year - while
Trinidad and Jamaica - who beat Cayman 3-2 today -
meet decide third place and Cayman play Bermuda for fifth.
The Boys' matches were contrasting affairs.
In the 5-7 playoff Jamaica saw a two-nil lead slip before
beating Bermuda 3-2 to set up a match against T&T for fifth
started their semi-final already one up against four-man OECS,
and three-nil wins for Rithew Saywack and Shomari Wiltshire put
the three-time defending champions back into the final, despite
OECS taking the last two matches.
Barbados v Cayman semi went down to the wire. Barbados
took the lead as Reginald Brewster won in three, taking the
first 12-10 from 6-10 down and the third 12-10 from 10-6 up!

straight games, then Khamal Cumberbatch levelled it for Barbados
with another three-nil win.
The decider was close, tense and noisy, with the two sets
of fans chanting their dialling codes "2-4-6" and "3-4-5",
but it was Cayman's Isiah Robinson who held his nerve at the end
of three close games to put "Team 345" into a first final since
they won the title at home in 2010.

Boys' Final and 3rd./4th are at 12.00.
