Ángela Leyva, Karla Ortiz and Maricarmen Guerrero had the highest individual score for Peru with 16, 13 and 11 points respectively. Claudia Hernandez was the only one in Cuba to reach double digits, with 12 points.

 Peru deactivated the main offensive weapons of Cuba with a forceful block (9-2), in addition it was superior in attack (38-32) and services (4-3).

Coach of Peru, Francisco Hervás: We started very well, and although in the second set we fell into that pothole the girls were able to solve it. Staying with this victory has been very rewarding, the girls deserved it and tomorrow we will face a tough opponent, but that makes us happy, that's what we came to play, learn and improve.

Coach of Cuba, Osmany García: Peru did a very good study job, they knew how to take our main attackers out of play. This caused the girls to become frustrated and leave the game, but it is something that happens with young groups and it is something that we have to work on and improve.

Cuba must recover to face Argentina on Wednesday 10 at 18:00. Next, at 8:00 p.m. Peru will play the last game of the preliminary round against the Dominican Republic.
