Mexico overwhelms unfencied Egypt in a totally lop-sided battle

Egyptian players are flat-footed while attempting to retrieve a fierce spike from Mexico.

Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, July 7, 2009 – Mexico, runners-up at the Norceca Championship, started aggressively in the match against Egypt, runners-up at the African Championship, with Cecilia Rios and Andrea Rangel taking turns to spike devastatingly cross-court to put the team in front 11-8.
 The Egyptians, attempting to end their jinx of winning no match in the championship, fought hard, but could not match the superb form of Mexico. The fiercely-attacking Mexicans claimed the opening set 25-18.
 The second set turned out to be a totally one-sided affair when Mexico came up with non-stop attacks which foiled the Egyptian attempts of staging a serious challenge. Mexico took the effortless set 25-12.
 Mexico still gained the upper hand initially 12-3 in the third set. The powerful duo of Xitlali Herrera and Rangel tore the Egyptian defence into pieces with their exceptional spikes, while Karla Sainz and Alejandra Perales produced solid blockings to stretch the lead to 18-5. Mexico won the set 25-8, again with ease.
