Gretell Moreno, Captain of Cuba:
We knew how to recover from a strong defeat
against the Dominican Republic in the first
game, we came out with a better attitude on the
field and little by little our game flowed, but
we have to continue preparing ourselves and
continue to iron out those little details that
we have to fix in order to reach the level that
we we want and return to the world elite.

I think we had a lot of good fight, we battled
every point and we did not win today but here we
are as a team here we are as Canada. I think we
played better today than yesterday.
