Match DOM v PUR: One for the record book

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic, September 4, 2021 – The match won by Dominican Republic over Puerto Rico in opening day of the Men’s Pan American Cup made the record book in the history of the competition.

All the four sets of the 3-1 (31-29, 31-33, 27-25, 27-25) triumph of the Dominican squad in 2:40 hours required to play beyond the normal 25 points to claim the victory.

Scrolling down all the scores in the history of the competition, the closest contest to that long battle was a quarterfinal 3-1 victory of Canada over United States in the edition of 2016 when three of the four sets went to prolonged points.

The Canadians won that one 3-1 (26-24, 26-28, 25-19, 31-29) on May 24.
