United States blank Trinidad and Tobago
Chiclayo, July 7, 2019. The United States defeated without
problems 3-0 (25-14, 25-15, 25-13), to Trinidad and Tobago,
adding its second victory of the XVII Women's Pan American Cup,
in Group B, that this Sunday made the day 2.
United States coach, Roberto Browning, used the seven players
who did not play against Colombia on Saturday, with Veronica
Jones-Perry as the best with 14 points, 13 for Danielle Cuttino
and 11 for Kathryn Plummer. For Trinidad and Tobago, Captain
Darlene Damrin has 8 points.The United States led 45-15 in
attack, 8-3 in blocking and were equal in service 3-3,
committing 21 errors for 19 of Trinidad and Tobago.
Jones-Perry said "I'm happy because it was a good match." We
need to improve some things like the reception, but I think it's
better to improve little by little in the tournament. "
Darlene Ramdin, captain of Trinidad and Tobago: "I think that
better than yesterday's game". They are seeing a high level of
volleyball, and now it's the positive. "
Robert Browning, coach of the United States: "It was the first
official international match for the seven players, that's why
it's very exciting for everyone. They formed their international
career here, in the Pan American Cup. "
The indication for this type of game is that you should not
respect the enemy when he is superior to you, only when he is
inferior to you. I told them to throw an easy ball because the
opponent returns it with everything. But I can tell you that the
team is working above expectations.
Trinidad and Tobago will play againts Puerto Rico at 6:00 p.m.
While the United States will face Mexico at 8:00 p.m.
