Lauren Paolini added 11 points, while Jordan Larson-Burbach totaled 15 points and Kristin Hildebrand contributed 11 points. Dominican Republic was led by Bethania de La Cruz with a match-high 23 points and Gina Mambru chipped in 15 points. The United States held advantages of 5-2 in aces and 12-7 in blocks. Dominican Republic produced a 60-51 margin in kills, but committed 29 errors in the match. Dominican Republic finished with the silver medal for the second straight edition after falling to the United States in the 2011 gold-medal match. Dominican Republic was aiming for its second tournament title, winning the event for the first time in 2009 after taking bronze five of the previous six events. Earlier in the day Puerto Rico claimed the bronze medal by defeating Canada 25-23, 25-16, 25-16. (In the fourth set) we were struggling a little and needed a little bit of energy. We brought Christa Harmotto in off the bench, U.S. Womens National Volleyball Team Head Coach Karch Kiraly said. The first thing she did is get us a put-away and then she had a huge block and all of a sudden we were back in it. We were going after points again instead of waiting for those points to happen on their own. Kristin Hildebrand had a great serving streak. She was applying lots of pressure at the service line just the way we want her to.
