On the hands of Leticia Boscacci and the great output of the Middle Players, Patricia Oillataguerre and Ileana Leyendeker Argentina got the leadership to close 25-21.

The incoming of Belen Roldan serving changed the score and the Cordoba girl complicated Puerto Rico reception. Ileana Leyendeker spikes from next to the net could not be received and the light blue - white jersey team changed a 12-13 set into a good 25-15 using also the mistakes of the opponent team.

The third set was very leveled but only on the first points. The changes on the field of Puerto Rico were very effective and Argentina could not concentrate and made a lot of non-forced errors. With the second TT0 9-16 even though Argentina kept fighting put a clear 2-0 into a 2-1 closing the set 25-17.

Argentina started the fourth set winning up to 10-8 when the ups and downs of the Caribean Team helped them get the lead. They arrived without any problems to the second TTO 16-10 but once more the changes of players recover the opponent score. The serve and blocking of its players leveled the set 21-21 to close 22-25 and go to a Tie-Break definition.
