SENIORS' MEN PAN-AMERICAN CUP: ARGENTINA 0 - BRAZIL 3

Ramonda, Argentinean top scorer

Mexico city, Mexico, August 21, 2013 - Brazil defeated Argentina 3-0 (25-22, 25-19, 25-21) with another solid performance by Renan Zanatta Buiatti, who scored 14 points at the “classical” South American match at the Seniors’ Pan-American Cup held this Wednesday in Mexico city. While Brazil topping the pool qualified directly for Semi-Finals Argentina will play this Thursday at 20.00 Argentine time v the winner of the match between the Dominican Republic and Trinidad & Tobago for the other berth at semi-final round.

Ricardo Lucarelli Sousa finished with 12 and Mauricio Borges with 11, also for Brazil, while Agustín Ramonda was Argentina’s best scorer after talling 11.

The classical South American battle defined the first place of Pool A at VIII Men’s Pan American Volleyball Cup in front of a good attendance at the “Juan de la Barrera” Olympic Gym on day three.

“It was an important victory and we hope the cup can help the younger players to increase their experience along with the veterans,” said Leonaldo Roberley, coach of Brazil.

For Alejandro Grossi, coach of Argentina, the attack of Brazil made a huge difference. “I think we blocked and served well,” He said. “We played well for many moments, but when there is a very important difference on the attack, there is nothing to do”.

Juan Ignacio Finoli, captain of Argentina said: “It was a tough match, we are trying to prepare for the U23 World Championship and faced a very consolidated team. We had some good moments, but sometimes there are some mistakes that cost you the result of the match”.

Brazilian captain Mauricio Borges stated: “It was a good match. We set the conditions for a good game on our side. They served well but we went out to block and make points”.
