That was a close one...5-0

What a win tonight!!!!!  Cuba is always dangerous and they proved that once again tonight.  After being down the first set and coming back to win, then having a tight second set and pulling it out...Cuba did exactly the same in the 3rd set.  We definitely blew it being up 12-4 or so...but that is Volleyball.  Often there will be highs and lows...and when Cuba gets on a roll they really get going.  The 4th set we were down again...with a little help from the energy of the bench we came back and pulled off a big win.  We ended up 5-0 in our pool, reaching our first goal, and now time to go and get to the Finals.

I love pictures that show are a couple from the game

Tomorrow morning we travel to our next stop Nagoya.  There we will take on Czech Republic, Italy, Netherlands, and Brazil.  Germany, Cuba, and Thailand will join us in that pool.  Since we beat all three of those teams, we go into the pool with a 3-0 record.  Brazil is the only other team with that record.  After the four matches we need to be in the top 2 to advance to the semi-finals.  It's going to be an exciting one...I can't wait.

With Love from Japan...
