Cui Meichen, Liu Yu and Che Wenhan were aligned with 10 points each as the main contributor of the Chinese victory, while Zhang Jiaxin fired 4 aces. Cuba was led by Yamisleydis Viltres and Daima Del Río, both with 4 stuff blocks and a total of 10 tallies, and Elizabeth Vicet trailed one point behind them.

China acquired a four-point lead in the first set with sharper serves and won that one 25-23 despite a tough resistance led by Cuba’s Cese. Che Wenhan carved the way to a 6-2 next as the story repeated itself - after the Asian dominance throughout almost the entire set, Cuba tried to reach the tie but the final score was an identical 25-23. Cuban captain Vicet attempted the comeback and her side could place on range at the final track (23-23), but Liu Yu spiked twice and closed the match 29-27.
