ARGENTINA STARTED THE U 23 CUP WITH A VICTORY OVER DOMINICAN REP.

Langley, Canada, September 25, 2012 – Argentina opened the Men’s U23 Pan American Cup with a victory over Dominican Republic 3-1 (25-15, 22-25, 25-22, 25-17). Luis David Adames was the top scorer for Dominican Republic, with 24 points, while Gonzalo Lapera tallied 20, with three blocks and one ace for Argentina.

“I feel glad after playing a good match on our side, it is always great to begin with a victory and that gave us confidence when starting this cup,” said Argentina’s Captain Gonzalo Quiroga.

“The match was quite good, we could win, but failed in the reception, that is a fundamental key, almost the 75 percent and that is what we have to adjust, and play hard to keep fighting now that we are just beginning at the tournament,” Dominican captain Wilfrido Hernandez stated.

For Argentina’s coach, Fabian Muraco, “this match was difficult, but the victory so important. Our team is young but has a lot of potential, maybe we don’t have a big biotype, but we have to play as many matchers as we can to compensate it”.

The coach of Dominican Republic, Osiel Vázquez stated: “We made a lot of technical mistakes, the boys were a little tired in the match and we hope to play at our best level for the next one”.
