Crushing victory for Colombia against Trinidad and Tobago
Chiclayo, June 9, 2019. Colombia crushed 3-0 (25-8, 25-8, 25-8)
to Trinidad and Tobago, achieving its first triumph of the XVIII
Women's Pan American Cup for two defeats, at the start of the
fourth day of Group B.
The Colombian team did not have much demand, taking advantage of
Amanda Coneo and Dayana Segovia to lead the attack, although
they also made a difference in the blocking.
María Alejandra Marín, captain of Colombia: "Colombia today knew
that I had to enter the court better than in the previous games,
make fewer mistakes and that's what we did. We played very
concentrated, very serious, knowing that Trinidad is a very
young team like us, that makes many mistakes, but that has many
surprises, with a very high block and we had to play fast so
that our attackers were left with only one blocking".
"The game with Mexico is very important, we fought the pass to
the quarterfinals and I think we have to go in as well."
Antonio Rizola, coach of Colombia: "This match served to show
respect to the opponent. We know the difficulty of Trinidad and
Tobago, a very young team that did not prepare for this
tournament. The opportunity for us is to play seriously, this
means respecting the opponent, making few mistakes and we comply
in that sense ".
Colombia will play against Mexico at 4:00 p.m. while Trinidad
and Tobago played four games of group B.
