By Rubén Morales Iglesias: In the longest and most riveting game of the XIV Under 19 Women’s Central American Volleyball Championship, Belize bounced back twice to beat archrivals Guatemala in five sets (16-25, 25-18, 21-25, 25-12, 15-13) on Friday.

Nisaan Martinez scored 31 points and Khaya Gordon came up with 26 to lead the team to victory after dropping the first and third sets. Guatemalan Naomi Monney scored 23 points and Dulce Trigueño added 15.

This is where Belize won the game since Guatemala nearly tipped the scale by gaining ten more points than Belize from opponents ‘ errors 35-25.
