Ana Erskine, Captain of Chile:

game and wanting to do things well, we showed it
on the court. We must improve in being more
offensive while attacking under our opponents’
Dazly Duran, Captain of Honduras:
“It was a difficult match, we had a good second
set, but our energy has been affecting us. This
tournament is good preparation for us. Chile was
good in attacking and their serving frequency
was effective, finding spaces to hurt us”.
Eduardo Guillaume, Head Coach of Chile:
“After studying Honduras we thought this could
be the outcome. This match helps us to gain more
confidence and improve our game level. We
performed orderly, in the second half of the
second set we decided to serve to put the ball
in play and take the opportunity to work in our
counterattack. Now in the quarterfinals we wait
for our opponent. Dominga (7) did it well, she
is tuning up and is one of our younger players,
Marvin Ulloa, Head Coach of Honduras:
“We had preparation matches before coming here,
but the team hasn’t performed at their capacity.
Only in the second set we are executing the game
fundamentals. I am taking as homework to have
more preparation matches for next tournaments”.
