The Belizean team recovered from a four-point deficit in the first set, to turn it around and keep the lead, despite Honduras trying to overcome by winning the third. An injury in the morning training of one of its players (Natalia Reyes) and another during the game, was a tough blow for the Hondurans.

Letisha Lamb, Jayda Smith and Captain Gareth Bruce kept Belize in the fight thanks to their strong shots, while Honduras Dazly Durán, Genesis Oyuela and Shantle Siliezar stood out.

José Fontés, coach of Belize: "It was a very difficult game, the players are being demanded because at times they do not comply with the tactical discipline, but we left happy because we recovered from that third set that was very easy for Honduras. I want to congratulate Honduras that it has an excellent team and was a worthy rival. "

Caterine Leiva, coach of Honduras: "The team was upset since this morning when our first middle blocker was injured, there is some emotion, the girls are very emotional, they won a set and unfortunately the next set could not be played with the same intensity, with the same enthusiasm. You have to recover the team emotionally for tomorrow's game against Costa Rica, especially trying to overcome the impact of two injuries."
