Dominicans win epic seven-set clash versus Argentina
LJUBLJANA, Slovenia, September 12, 2017 – After a sluggish

a hard-earned 4-3 (21-23, 12-15, 15-12, 17-15, 16-14, 20-22,
15-5) win over Argentina in Pool A on Tuesday afternoon.
Thus, the Dominicans have improved their records to 2-1 wins
while Argentina are still waiting for their first victory here
at the 2017 FIVB Women’s U23 World Championship in Ljubljana,
Slovenia. It was the first seven-set match so far in the
competition, lasting 2 hours and 3 minutes.
Dominican Republic’s Madeline Jazmin Guillen and Argentina’s
Daniela Bulaich booked 22 points apiece for their squads while
Sol Piccolo added another 20 kills for the South Americans.
Dominican coach Wagner Pacheco: “Argentina
played well and I think that they really did a great job when it
came to the most important points at the end of each set.
However, we had the chance to win this match more easily.”
