El Salvador dominates

Panama 3-0

MANAGUA, Nicaragua, October 19, 2021- El Salvador achieved its second victory due to a defeat, beating Panama 3-0 (26-24, 25-13, 25-21) in the second game of the third day of the XXI Central American Senior Women's Volleyball Cup.

Adriana Flores, Salvadoran captain, led her teammates with 17 points, while Gabriela Funes contributed 13 units, with Tatiana Menjivar being effective in serves, achieving four points, out of a total of 9. For Panama, Haslyn Cuero and Elena Berrocal achieved 5 points.

El Salvador was superior in attack 39-22 and serve 11-2, but Panama had four points per blocking by two of their opponents.

The first set was very fought by both squads, maintaining parity in almost the entire set, defining themselves with two errors by the Panamanians in attack and pass.

From then on, the Salvadorans took control, causing damage with the service, which caused Panama to fail to achieve effective attacks.

In the last set, Panama tried Cuero and captain Johana Arroyo, however their aspirations fell short, because they ran into a very concentrated Salvadoran squad and Funes scoring six points in that frame.

On Wednesday El Salvador will play at 1:00 p.m. against Belize, who also got a win in their second game. Panama has rest.
