Turkey and Italy back on track at inaugural Women’s U23 Worlds
News from the FIVB

Tijuana and Mexicali, Mexico, October 7, 2013. On Monday Japan edged the Dominican Republic in five sets (15-25, 25-22, 17-25, 25-17, and 15-9) to capture sole possession as the only undefeated team in Pool A at the FIVB Women’s U23 World Championship while in Pool B China and the United States kept their spotless mark after three days of actions. Turkey and Italy claimed their second and first victory in the tournament respectively as they routed Argentina and Mexico in straight sets while Europe’s third representative, Germany, lost at the tie-break to United States after a gallant effort.  

On Monday Turkey dispatched Argentina in consecutive frames (25-20, 25-20, and 25-19) and Italy outclassed Mexico 3-0 (25-19, 25-15, and 25-20). Luca Cristofani, coach of Italy, said: “Mexico has the best serve of all the teams we have faced. We played well and gave our best. Our tallest player (Valentina) Diouf didn’t play due to a slight knee injury. It’s the first step in a long road and I hope we can play better tomorrow.”
Mehmet Bedestenlioglu, head coach of Turkey, commented after his team’s victory over Argentina: “Sunday’s defeat to the Dominican Republic was a very difficult loss for us to take but we had to prepare the team for today. We practiced in the morning and came out to play. We won but gave away too many points. We need to change that.”   

In Pool B United States had to fight hard before claiming a five-set victory over Germany (25-15, 23-25, 25-27, 25-12, and 15-11), while China made a light work in beating Cuba in straight sets (25-14, 25-21, and 25-23). Gina Mancuso scored 20 points while Sandra Adeleye had 10 to lead the United States. “It was a very nice effort by Germany,” USA’s coach Karch Kiraly said. “We made a lot of errors but we could improve in the fourth and fifth sets.”  

Yanhan Liu scored 16 points for China while Xiaoya Zhang closed with 10. Rosanna Giel finished with 16 for Cuba. “We had to work hard on our block and put some pressure because the last two sets they (Cuba) were very close,” China’s coach Xu Jiande stated.  

In the other game in Pool B, Brazil crushed Kenya 3-0 (25-8, 25-7, and 25-10).  

On Tuesday, Argentina meet Japan, Dominican Republic clash with Italy and Turkey play against Mexico in Pool A in Tijuana. In Pool B in Mexicali, Cuba go against Kenya in a match between winless teams, United States battle with China for the top place and Germany take on Brazil.
