Seychelles women followed the footsteps of their men counterparts and defeated Mauritius 3-2 (25-19, 29-31, 19-25, 25-22, 15-11).

After Mauritius won the first set, Seychelles ladies regained their performance and won two successive sets to lead 2-1, before the Seychelles team claimed the fourth set and the tiebreak to win the tough match.
