17-09-13 MEX-CUBPool A
Trinidad & Tobago-Costarica 3-2 (25-14, 22-25, 21-25, 27-25, 15-13) STAT

Classifica: Rep.Dominicana 5, Trinidad & Tobago 3, Costarica 2

Trinidad & Tobago captain Krystle Esdelle: (Before the fifth set) “We said no more joking around. We have to get this set. We are there, let’s take it home.”

Trinidad & Tobago coach Francisco Cruz: “All victories are good. The problem is not the players; the problem is the conditions of training in Trinidad & Tobago. That team only trains six hours a week. At that level it is necessary to train 24 or more hours a week. They have come to the tournament to gain experience.”

Costa Rica captain Angela Willis Lindo: “We have played them before and we knew tactically what we needed to do, but it was very difficult because they are a very strong team. I think that was the advantage they had. At times we were lost and we didn’t know what to do.”

Costa Rica coach Horacio Nester: “In the first set we struggled with serve receive and our attacking wasn’t what it’s supposed to be. We allowed Trinidad to block a lot of our attacks. We had a lot of mistakes and we didn’t close out the fourth set as we should have. We had great opportunities but our mistakes cost us the victory.”

Pool B
Messico-Cuba 3-2 (25-18, 25-23, 23-25, 21-25, 18-16) STAT

Classifica: Usa 5, Messico 3, Cuba 2

Mexico coach Claudio Torres: “In the first two sets we were more aggressive with our serves. Once we started to be more comfortable with our serve, (Cuba) was able to step up their game and attack more. So our serving was the main difference between those four sets. I think Mexico played with a lot of heart. They fought for every point. It’s been many years since we beat Cuba so it was a great win for us.“

Mexico captain Dulce Carranza: “It was a hard-fought battle. The match had a lot of ups and downs. The key to the victory was the adjustments we had to make because we got too comfortable in the middle so we had to make the adjustments in order to pull out the win. It started with the service and the blocking also helped to get the victory.”

Cuba captain Daymara Lescay: “We started the match well but then we got too comfortable and that’s what led to our loss. It had nothing to do with being tired. We just got too comfortable.”

Cuba coach Juan C. Rodriguez: “There were a couple of our star players that did not perform at a high enough level. They had to be placed on the bench. There were times that our main passer was not able to start off points well for us. It did not help us that she was not playing at her top level. Tomorrow we have to play even better against the United States because they are a top team.”

Pool C
Canada-St.Lucia 3-0 (25-14, 25-9, 25-14) STAT

Classifica: Portorico 5, Canada 5, Santa.Lucia 0

Canada captain Brittney Page: “It was a nice way to work our way into the tournament for sure and just focus on ourselves. That was our biggest goal going into this was just to respond every time and focus on ourselves and what we’ve practiced.”

Canada coach Arnd Ludwig: “We were a little nervous the whole game, especially the younger players. I think we’ve put that behind us in this first game and now we’re looking forward to the next match. I think our block is usually a little better. We did a few things with the block that I didn’t like. I think our serving and attack can improve a little as well.”

St. Lucia captain Natalie Edward: “I think a match like this points out our weaknesses and what we need to work on. Hopefully we take this match, go back home, practice and come back and play better next time.”

St. Lucia coach Florian Combie: “We got a lot more touches on the ball on the block than we have. What we learned from our last match and our session this morning showed an improvement in our blocking. Our reception still disappointed us.”
