The North American side downed pool hosts France, who suffered the back-to-back defeat for the first time in the tournament, finishing Week 3 with a 6-3 record.

The USA saved two set points in the fourth set before Maxwell Holt served an ace for his team’s win: 3-1 (23-25, 25-22, 28-26, 27-25).

Taylor Sander top-scored for the USA with 16 points, while David Smith made 5 kill blocks. Kévin Tillie also tallied 16, but for France.
