Bradley Robert Gunter scored 17 points, and USA rookie Benjamin Patch matched that score, becoming the best on his side of the court. 

Captain of Canada, John Gordon Perrin, admitted that the match was not pretty to fan's eye. Both teams are out of their best shape yet as they only enter the World League competition. 

For Stephane Antiga two victories are more than expected. Canada arrived to Novi Sad with plan minimum of a one victory. Having two and leader's position in the pool, that plan was already achieved. 

USA's young squad is struggling thus far, but John Speraw emphasises that this is the moment for them to improve and learn top volleyball.
