Cuba claimed its second consecutive victory in the IV U23 Pan American Cup after defeating Chile 3-0 (25-20, 25-12, 25-12) at the Manuel Bonilla Coliseum in Miraflores.

With the combination of the good setting by Grettel Moreno and the power of its attackers, Cuba got 5 key points that for now give them the first place of Group A. The team of Tomás Fernández demonstrated all its power with wide advantage in attack (45-21), blocking (9-1) and services (4-1).

Although Eduardo Guillaume's team managed to complicate their rival in the first set, it was not enough to stop the top scorers of the winning team Ailama Cese and Laura Suárez who got 12 points each, followed by the captain Diaris Pérez who registered 10 units like Moreno. On the Chile side, the opposite Maike Bertens got the maximum of 6 points.

Chile will fight for its first triumph in the IV U23 Pan American Cup on Thursday 16, when it plays at 13:00 against Guatemala. And at 7:00 pm Cuba will close the Group Stage facing the local team.

The setter of Cuba, Gretell Moreno: "The Chilean team was able to complicate us at times with the serve and use our blocking against, but with the instructions of our coach we knew how to regain our level and demonstrate that joy and claw that characterizes the teams of Cuba".

The captain of Chile, Amelia Carvajal: "I think the team did their best, we tried to defend each ball and tried to take advantage of their mistakes but it is not a team that we are used to playing and it cost us a lot. Tomorrow’s match is key for us to continue in competition and we will go out with everything to beat Guatemala. "
