Undefeated teams clash in Puerto Rican League
CAGUAS, Puerto Rico, February 17, 2017 – Criollas of Caguas and
Leonas of Ponce, the two undefeated teams thus far in the Puerto
Rico Women’s Volleyball Superior League will face on Friday
night at Ildefonso Sola Bezares Coliseum of Caguas at 8:15.
The match will be on national television and a full house is
expected for the much anticipated contest.
Caguas is in first place with 21 points and a 7-0 win-loss
record and Ponce has also a 7-0 mark but with 20 points
“This is a match that my team and I also have been anticipating
because it offers the chance to evaluate the composure of the
players against an opponent like Ponce,” said Juan Carlos Nunez,
the coach of Caguas. “They (Leonas) have been training for
weeks and had a different preparation than the rest of the
teams. I think we are going to have a lot of fans in the gym.”
“It should be a very interesting match because both teams have
been playing good volleyball. Both teams are undefeated and that
makes the match more attractive. Caguas is a very offensive team
with the five players contributing and we have been working on
the complex two in order to neutralize their offense,” said
Ramon Hernandez, the coach of Ponce.
