El Salvador, USA, Canada in men’s semfinals


POINTE DU-MARIN, Martinique, October 27, 2018 - The trio of El Salvador, USA and Canada-A all cemented places in the men’s semifinals in the sixth and final leg of the 2018 NORCECA Beach Volleyball Circuit.


However, the final qualifier to the last-four will have to be determined on Sunday morning after bad light forced the postponement of the match between Canada-B duo, Adam Thompson ad Ivan Reka and Trinidad and Tobago’s Daneil Williams and Daynte Stewart, the top seeded pair.


In the three men’s main draw quarterfinals matches that were completed  El Salvadorans, Carlos Escobar and David Vargas whipped Costa Ricans Sebastian Valenciano and Bryan Monge 21-12, 21-18; USA’s Benjamin Vaught and Travis Mewhitter powered past St Kitts/Nevis Shawn Seabrooks and St Clair Hodge, 21-9, 21-15 and Puerto Rico’s Cristian Encarnacion and Juan Ribas battled past Canada-A’s William Hoey and Liam Kopp 21-18, 30-28.
