The victory improved the win loss ratio of the winners to 2-0 after their second match to secure a second round ticket, while Egypt dropped to 0-3.
Puerto Rico’s big gun was Patricia Montero who scored impressive 21 points including 2 blocks and 2 aces followed by Genesis Miranda who scored 15 points. Sara Hanafy led Egyptian scorers with 12 points.
Puerto Rico girls were more motivated to win as they extracted all the power in the organisation of the reception and backline defence to overwhelm the net action. Egypt players didn’t receive well so they couldn’t come back to the match throughout the first and second sets before they relatively improved in the third set, but losing crucial points cost them to lose 3-0.
