Both teams showed the best of their attack. The Argentineans sought to take advantage of the flaws in the Dominican defense, but the winning team put up resistance and knew how to prevail with the variety of their attack and the strength of their blocking.

Gaila Gonzalez and Annerys Vargas contributed 21 and 12 points, respectively, in the victory. Paula Yamila Nizetich and Lucia Fresco had 19 and 18 points for Argentina, while Daniela Bulaich chipped in with 15. 

Coach of Dominicana, Marcos Kwiek: Today they were able to play other girls who came to rest to recover from all the demands we had in the League of Nations. We will seek to maintain our growth rate for the coming matches and we can reach a good level in the semifinals.

Coach of Argentina, Hernán Ferraro: It was a very good game. Dominicana is a first level team, we have made a great effort against such tough opponent, we are proud of the work that the girls did.

Dominicana is the only unbeaten team in the Serie A and on Tuesday 9 will measure forces against Canada. Argentina, on the other hand, with two victories (Canada and Peru), will play against Guatemala.
