Ghana wins first Youth Olympics match in Beach Volleyball

Written by Christine Dzakah

Ghana recorded its first win at the ongoing summer Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires on Tuesday after the pair of Eric Tsatsu and Kelvin Carboo beat Monaco by 2-1 to increase their chances of progressing to the next stage of the beach volleyball event.

The All Africa Games silver winning medalists started the game on a high and won the first set by 21 games to 14.

However, the two players lost concentration and made some communication errors, allowing Monaco to win the second set by 21 to 18.

The Ghanaians went into the third set stronger and that saw Eric Tsatsu and Kelvin Carboo combining beautifully to finish the game 18 to 15.
