After a complicated first set for the Guatemalans, due to the strength of Johnson's shots and the good service of the Honduran player, a knee injury reduced her productivity and that allowed Guatemala to take greater advantage in the second set.

In the match for the third place, the couple 2 of Costa Rica, Larissa Villegas/Ana Paula Fallas, won 2-1 (16-21, 21-13, 15-10) against their compatriots Irena and Lucia Gomez.
