The sisters Pilar and Sofía Victoria, aged 24 and 17 respectively, debuted and played together for the first time in an official tournament. "I am very excited and happy. It's the first time we are together on the court, for me it means a lot this experience, "said Sofia.

"It's very nice to have my sister playing with me, being together on the court, since last year in a NORCECA tournament we were on the team but we did not play at the same time," said Pilar.

The captain of Puerto Rico, Natalia Valentín, said "we are a very united team, anyone who is on the court plays for our country and the support will be of all. Today we take the opportunity to give our reserves a little bit of space because a champion team needs all the players not only six, because it is not easy to leave the bank to play, it is good that they are gaining confidence ".

José Mieles, coach of Puerto Rico: "I'm happy with the result, it's the second match of the tournament, I started with the starting line up to keep up the pace, but then I used the other players to give them time to play, so they can have experience at this level and I am satisfied with the replacement."

Trinidad and Tobago will face Colombia (which had rest) at 4:00 p.m. while Mexico and Puerto Rico will play at 6:00 p.m. in the Cerrado Coliseum of Chiclayo.
