Mexico DF, Mexico, May 22, 2016 - The South American team showed different rotations while using all their players; they had some trouble in the second set when Honduras got into better rhythm but they still controlled the actions. Argentina improved their win-loss record 2-0 and stands with ten points in Pool C, while Honduras remains win-less 0-2.

Argentina held advantage in all categories, with advantage 28-24 in spikes, 7-1 in blocks and 6-1 in serves. Argentina scored on 24 errors from their opponent and committed 19.

Argentina’s top scorer was middle blocker Fabian Flores with 10 points and opposite German Johansen contributed with 9. Luis Salgado led Honduras with 9 points.

Argentina will face Mexico on Monday to conclude the preliminary round.

Coach Camilo Soto of Argentina said “Honduras had a much better performance in the second set and we failed in a couple of serves, from there on we didn’t risk as much and Honduras had more opportunities. We always had control thru a high rotation, good reception and strong spikes”. About tomorrow’s match against Mexico, he said “it’s the home team and the crowd will be cheering for them; they have experienced players and it will be a good challenge for my young players”.

Coach Mauricio Ulloa of Honduras indicated “my team plays well but we start making mistakes and we can’t keep consistency and this is really harmful. We continue to improve”.
