It was an easy day in the office for the team USA. Right from the start, the North American side took control of the match and never let go. The Algerian women tried their best but could not pose a serious threat to the potent USA team. By the second technical time-out in the first set it was already 16-5 to the USA, and it was clear that this would be a one sided duel.

Coach Kiraly let all the players feel the court in “Pionir” Hall of Sports in this match. In the end, it was an easy 3-0 sweep for the Americans, who are looking good ahead of the upcoming duels in Pool F. On the other side, the Algerians added 38 more points to their overall score, summing up now a total of 144 points in their four matches combined.
