This was the first tie-breaker of the competition in Santa Fe. 

Elizabeth Vicet was the best scorer of the match that lasted almost two hours. 

Vicet recorded 24 points, followed by Ailama Cese Montalvo, with 20 points, and Thalia Moreno who scored 15. However those were not enough for a Cuban team that failed some key plays in the fourth set and surrendered 31 points by the end of the match.

Lina Alsmeier scored 21 for Germany, while Emma Cyris finished with 19 and Josepha Bock tallied 11. 

Both teams disputed a very tough battle in front of the net that concluded with a 13 points by block on each side,
but Germany worked hard with service and closed with a 12-5 advantage. Cyris and Patricia Nestler aced twice each.
