Men's beach volleyball team cruises to win over Guatemala

Canada's men's beach volleyball duo made quick work of the Guatemalans in their second match of the preliminary round on Wednesday afternoon.

Top-seeded Josh Binstock and Sam Schachter easily claimed their first straight-sets victory of the Pan Am Games, taking both sets 21-9 over Luis Garcia Betancourt and Julio Recinos Ocana. 

The Canadian pair, who hail from Richmond Hill, Ont., rebounded after a close opening match on Tuesday night. The 16th-seeded Nicaraguans gave the host nation's team more than it was expecting in a close 2-1 game. 

The men's team concludes preliminary-round action Thursday at 9 p.m. ET against Uruguay. 

Canada's women will also play Uruguay to close out preliminary round matches Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.
