Turkey Cagla Akin and Ceylan Arisan blocking Mexico

Brno, Czech Republic, June 26, 2013 – The opening match of the 6th day of competition at Vodova hall saw Turkey defeating Mexico in straight sets (25-14, 25-20, 25-23) to enter the quarterfinals.

The first set was an easy walk for Turkey (25-14), with Mexico scoring only 4 points directly. In the second one, Mexico entered with more motivation to take a 6-10 advantage, but their opponents got the chance to match them at 13-all and then rush for the 2-0.

Nothing changed in the following set: the superior attack from Turkey did not allow any possible reaction from Mexico. Coach Estanislao Vachino tried almost all his players to obtain a good but too short reaction from his team (23-23). Turkey did not allow more: a quick attack of Kubra Akman and a block of Ceyda Aktas sent Mexico to the play off rank  9-16.
