achieve the result obtained.

Carolyn O´Dwyer, coach of
think the match was a Little bit like a roller
coaster for both teams having up and downs in
the hole game of course I´m happy that ended up
win for us and that we showed up that we are a
team that can win games.
Rafael Petry, coach of Mexico: In
general, the game was very close, just like the
previous one, both teams today were very
similar, except for the sets in which both teams
were under 20 points. I think that the first
ball cost us a little more to be able to kill
that first play action, I think that was the
determining factor of the match.
