In Wednesday’s fifth and final day of action, the Dominicans meet Peru while Cuba faces Trinidad & Tobago.
Marcos Kwiek, coach of Dominican Republic observed: “We were favorites to win the match but the girls took it very seriously and I am very glad about that. We had to battle against a very promising young Cuban team with some very tall players.”
