PNG, Tonga men’s beach volleyball teams too strong

It was the men’s turn to take centre stage on Wednesday afternoon at the beach-like stadium where some exciting beach volleyball has been played this week as part of the Van2017 Pacific Mini Games.

In the men’s competition, Tonga and Papua New Guinea were the victors in the early matches.

Tonga defeated Tuvalu in a close match where Tonga looked promising in the first set but Tuvalu stepped up their performance, winning the second set. In the third, Tonga came back with energy that dominated Tuvalu which resulted in Tonga taking the win.

In the second match, Papua New Guinea took on Solomon Islands and dominated the match from the beginning not giving the men from the Solomons a chance, taking the first set and then the second in convincing style 21-16.

At the break, Northern Marianas and American Samoa took part in an exhibition match which the Marianas won in two sets.
