“It’s always a battle when we play with Australia. Their block defense was good tonight. It was hard for us to score points. Our serves were better in the end of the match and I think that was the difference,” says Hoag.
“This was a big challenge for both teams. We always have big battles with Canada. They deserved to win. Their float serves and serve-reception was good. The serves made the difference. Unfortunately we lost, but the tournament is not over. We will keep going and do our best,” says coach of Australia Roberto Santilli.
Thomas Edgar was very disappointed after the match:
“I’m very disappointed. Canada hung tough. We threw everything at them. We had some good signs today. Hopefully we can play better tomorrow. We still have several games left. I strained an abdominal muscle four days before the tournament and have aggravated it a bit here. I am trying to manage it.”
