Press release

Guaynabo Mets were "defeated by a better team"


Guaynabo Mets captain Enrique Escalante trying to stop Eder Carbonera from Sada Cruzeiro

Enrique Escalante, Guaynabo Mets captain: "We wanted to prove that we actually belong to this tournament. I don't know if we were expecting to win, but we wanted to give a good performance to the audience and I think that we did."

William Arjona, Sada Cruzeiro captain: "I think that we did good for a first match, because it's always harder. Guaynabo Mets played well and made it difficult for us in some moments. We played better, but maybe not as good as we are used to. I believe that it's normal in the beginning of a championship." 

Javier Gaspar, Guaynabo Mets coach: "We were defeated by a better team tonight, probably the best team in the world. We recognize that, but I believe that our players did what they were asked to. We knew what Sada Cruzeiro was going to do offensively, but we just didn't execute our plan well."

Marcelo Méndez, Sada Cruzeiro coach: "I want to congratulate the Puerto Rican team, because they fought all the time and worked to have a good result. I believe that we have achieved our goal, that was to win the match, and we are already thinking on the next game. Our block and the defense both worked well and that earned us a good result."
