By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Defending champions Costa Rica dominated their first game in the XIV U-19 Women’s Central American Volleyball Championship beating Belize 3-1 (25-21, 22-25, 25-12, 25-7) at the Belize City Civic Center on Monday night.

After dropping the first set 25-22, Belize roared back taking the second by the same score but felt the pressure of the Costa Rican attacks and succumbed 25-12, 25-07 in the final two sets.

Costa Rica controlled all the categories beating Belize 41-27 in attacks, 11-8 in blocks, and 14-5 in serves. Costa Rica also made 31 points from Belize errors while conceding 25.

I think my team worked very hard, there are things we could have done better, we could have communicated better, the passing could have been better, but we worked very hard,” Belize’s captain Avianka Avila said according to AFECAVOL.

“Our goal for the next few days will be to win every game and hopefully we can win the medal for second place.”

Joselyn Moraga led the Costa Ricans with 16 points.

Belize’s best scorer was Nisaan Martinez who tallied 15. Khaya Gordon added 14. Blessed Omamurhe scored six.

“It was a very interesting match, but we handled it quite well. When it got a bit complicated, we were able to take the lead, so we calmed down and managed to get the win,” Costa Rican captain Angélica Rodríguez said.

Belize rest today with a 1-1 record while Costa Rica face Honduras at 5:00 pm.

Nicaragua won their second game beating El Salvador 3-1 (25-17, 25-15, 16-25, 25-14). El Salvador dropped to 1-1.
