Peruvians celebrate victory over Costa Rica

Karla Ortiz was the top scorer for the home team with 13 points followed by Patricia Soto and Raffaella Camet who finished with 10 points a piece.

Mirtha Uribe, the captain of Peru, was happy with the win but not entirely with the team’s performance.”It was a good game but could be better. We had prepared to face an easier Costa Rica but they made it difficult for us at the beginning of the first two sets. However, we were able to get those first five points and hope that the next games are better “.

Peru’s Korean coach, Sung Jin Hong, showed his satisfaction for his first victory in an official tournament in overall command. “The girls responded. I am glad about debuting with a victory in an official match, which was attained much by the enthusiasm and desire put by the players”.

Horacio Bastit, Coach of Costa Rica, said: “I am not satisfied, not because of the 3-0, because we knew it was very difficult to beat the Peru, but because we made many mistakes. I think the score had to be by a less margin. The setters were not at their level and that was important for Peru to get this result.”
