Lima, Peru, September 22, 2016 - Argentina breezed past Trinidad & Tobago to win 3-0 (25-12, 25-4, 25-6) for their third victory against one loss at the U23 Women’s Volleyball Pan American Cup by Gatorade on Thursday at Manuel Bonilla Coliseum of Miraflores. Argentina finishes this Friday facing Costa Rica in the last match of the Preliminary Round.

It was the first three-set match for Argentina after winning in four sets matches against Cuba and Dominican Republic and losing a five-setter to Peru on Wednesday night.

The victory secured the South American side one of the top four positions in the preliminary phase and a spot in Saturday’s semi-finals to be played at Cañete.

Trinidad & Tobago had a lot of difficulties dealing with the serves from Argentina as the winners recorded 16 aces for the match.

Elina Rodriguez had 12 points, including 9 aces, as the leading scorer for the winners. Daniela Bulaich and Mariana Moriondo had 10 and 8, respectively, in the win while Irene Verario chipped in with 7 points.

Guillermo Orduna, coach of Argentina:“There are few things to analice about this match because Trinidad & Tobago is a developing team going through a building process against one that came here looking for the qualification and that’s a big difference technically. There are two different realities, but the important thing is that Argentina kept the composure and didn’t adjust to the opponents’ game.”

Nicholson Drakes, coach of Trinidad & Tobago:“It has been a very difficult match for us because we are not at the same level of Argentina. Everything is a process so we have to keep moving forward with a lot of work for the people to understand exactly all the work needed to be at this level.”
