SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic, September 5,
Convincingly and without
complications, it was the second victory in a
row last night for the Caribbean Queens after
having three sets to zero (25-20/25-16/25-12)
against the Mexican team, at the end of the
second day of the Norceca Final Six Tournament,
where the Banreservas Cup is played.
The Dominicans faced no problems to remain
undefeated (2-0), as they combined a strong
serve, excellent blocking and combined attack to
break their rivals who now posted their record
The Dominicans' attack was guided by Yonkaira
Peña Isabel, with 14 points, Brayelin Martínez
contributed 13, while Madeline Guillén scored 11
points and the left-footed Gaila González left
with ten, in the event that brings together six
countries and takes place successfully at the
Ricardo -Gioriver- Arias Volleyball Palace, of
the Juan Pablo Duarte Olympic Center.
With her great performance, Peña assumes the
leadership of the tournament with the most
points scored (18), in the tournament that
concludes this coming Saturday.
It was impossible for the Mexicans to circumvent
the iron defense carried out by the girls led by
Brazilian Marcos Kwiek, who, unlike on Sunday,
did not use his star players, Brenda Castillo
and Bethania de la Cruz.
“We went out to give a good game and we were
able to achieve it, each one of us went out to
comply with the game scheme proposed by our
leader, now we have to stay focused to try to
keep our undefeated and go out on the field to
defend it against Puerto Rico ”, expressed Peña
Isabel after the game that lasted 1:10 minutes.
For the defeated, Claudia Río was the most
outstanding with 7 points, seconded by Aimé
Topete, with six goals.
