This was Snagg’s lone defeat, as prior, he had wins over a Barbadian trio of Darien Benn, Mark Sealey and Stewart St John, all in 3-0 sets triumphs.
Complementing the Vincentian team were Othniel Bailey and Ceron Padmore.
Bailey, after beating Alex Stewart in the second round, fell to Stewart St John in the quarter final.
Padmore was beaten by Daniel Jordan and then by Zachariah Naitram in the consolation play-offs.
Jordan and Naitram represented Barbados.
Meanwhile, the St Vincent and the Grenadines Squash Association’s junior programme would be put to the test, when seven players will pit their skills at the Hilton Barbados Junior World Open Circuit Event, also slated for this weekend in Barbados.
