Lobo was unstoppable in attack with 14 points with 5 in blocks, leading Honduras to his second win, and the second defeat for Belize that had Kaelen Ingram and Thomas Garbutt with 13 units each and 10 of Malcolm Murillo.

The captain of Honduras, Jonathan Meza, said that "we certainly expected to win this game, we knew about the limitations of Belize, which is not a team as tough as Costa Rica or Guatemala, and we are aware of the mistakes we made in the first game. We have been able to overcome the pressure of being new, but we are more united as the tournament progresses. We put emphasis on the service and it worked for us before Belize. "

The assistant coach of Honduras, Miguel Pagoaga, said that "we are very happy with the performance in these first games, now we will try to get the best result with teams that are better placed in the ranking because the hardest is coming. We know our weaknesses and always remain aware of the physical and mental state of our team. "
