Americans win historic 32-30 tie-breaker against Trinidadians


PUNTA CANA, Dominican Republic, September 14, 2019 – Fans in Punta Cana enjoyed the unique opportunity of watching history flying before their eyes when the men’s duos of United States and Trinidad & Tobago starred in one of the most exciting battles ever in NORCECA Beach Circuit.


Brandon Joyner and Michael Boag of United States engaged with Daneil Williams and Joel Isaac Theodore in a give-and-take combat that lasted 1 hour and 21 minutes under sizzling conditions in the air and the pearly white sand of Punta Cana.


The Trinidadian pair did everything within their strength and ability to claim the first set 22-20 which gave them hopes of a victory never achieved before against the powerful teams that usually represent the United States.


Joyner and Boag, however, were thinking totally different and came back to tie the affair with a 21-19 second set before claiming the win with an incredible tie-breaker that will enter the books of NORCECA Confederation and never will be forgotten by those who had the chance to watch the 32-30 decision.


An important chapter of the history of beach volleyball in NORCECA was played on Saturday. You can write that on stone!
