Argentina sweeps Dominican Republic


SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, May 24, 2010 – Argentina swept Dominican Republic 3-0 (25-19, 26-24, 25-22) in the second match of opening day in the Men’s Pan American Cup.


Federico Pereyra and Mariano Giustiniano were the top contributors to the winning offense with 19 and 12 points respectively while Jose Caceres and Victor Batista charted 16 and 15 for the losers.


“They forced us to play our best volleyball,” Argentinean Coach Alejandro Grossi said during the post-game press conference. “I think the difference was that we executed at the key final moments of the second and third sets.”


“They have better technical level than us and didn’t make the errors in the key late moments as we did,” Dominican Jacinto Campechano stated. “Our setters are improving but we still have some problems with our reception.”
