“Peru worked hard with the service. We lost our focus and they played very well against us,” said Willis.


“We improved our service and have increased our level match by match, also in receiving every service. Even though it is a young team, the girls are getting experience,” Peruvian captain Elena Keldibekova stated.


“Peru limited us a lot, they had a good scheme and affected our game plan,” Costa Rica’s coach, Xavier Perales commented.


“Costa Rica is not an easy opponent but we watched a lot of videos on them. Once they start playing they give battle to anyone,” remarked the Peruvian coach Edwin Jimenez about the match that lasted only 58 minutes.
