Mexico beats Canada in the Pan American Cup

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic, June 27, 2024.- Mexico beated the Canadian team 3-1 (25-21, 25-14, 20-25, 26-24) to achieve its first victory in the Women´s Final Six Volleyball Pan American Cup that is being played at the “Ricardo Arias” National Volleyball Pavilion.

The best offensive players for Mexico were Uxue Guereca with 16 points, Sofía Maldonado added 14 and Marian Ovalle another 11. For the Canadians Emoni Busch and Madyson Saris scored 20 and 16 points respectively.

Mexico dominated Canada in attacks 52-45 and in serves 13-7, while Canada was better in blocks 7-1.


Jocelyn Urías, captain of Mexico: The truth is we knew it was not going to be an easy game, we couldn’t go in at all weak, I feel like we started well only in the third set, maybe we slowed down a little bit and lost that one because the Canadians pushed and we have to learn from it so that the same thing doesn’t happen to us in the next game.

Averie Allard, captain of Canada: I think we started playing well, we have trained very hard, we executed our game plan very well but it is a game of intensity so I think a lot of us need to have more momentum as the game goes on moving forward to overcome bad moments in the match, we came prepared to play a long game which did not go as we expected but I think that tomorrow we will come back stronger and we will learn from this.
