They shot the lights out from three sinking 14 long-distance shots on high 51.9 percentage. Santa Tecla looked well-organized offensively handing out 30 assists. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Santa Tecla made 7 blocks. Worth to mention a great performance of naturalized American point guard Robert Martinez (185-91, college: Our Lady Lake) who helped to win the game recording 29 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Cuban Lisvan Valdez (200-88) contributed with 31 points and 5 steals for the winners. Santa Tecla's coach used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American forward Garland McArthur (197-88, college: Voorhees) answered with a double-double by scoring 22 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists for Brujos Izalco. Undefeated Santa Tecla (5-0) have an impressive series of five victories in a row. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position.
