Gabriela Gómez, captain of Honduras: "We are very happy and very proud of what we have done. We started the tournament nervously, although we were prepared for the first game, we were not given, but God knows why things happen. We knew that the serve would serve us, but we did not expect to make so many points in a row in the same set ... all this is the result of the preparation we have had."

Geannine Velásquez, captain of El Salvador: "From the beginning, even in training, we failed much and more in defense, but I think it has a lot to do with the fact that for most girls it is their first tournament, nerves, and the anxiety to do things right affects us. We try to do things well, I think we have been improving, even in some games we could win, but we did not manage to make a good close".

Caterine Leiva, coach of Honduras: "After the first game we lost we made adjustments both emotional and tactical and it has given us results so far; the girls have been animated and today was a dynamic game, we met our goal today against El Salvador. In the absence of more attackers than we have, the serves has been our biggest weapon to compensate for that weakness."

El Salvador closes before Belize at 3:00 p.m., while Honduras challenges Nicaragua at 5:00 p.m. on the last day of the tournament.
