Peru's San Martin de Porres University of Lima defeated Argentina's Villa Dora of Santa Fe 3-0 (25-21, 25-17, 25-22), as both teams advanced to the semifinals of the 2016 South American Women's Club Championship in La Plata.

Despite the bad defeat, however, the moment will be cherised by the Bolivians.
Olympic Cochabamba setter Claudia Pavisic: We left everything on the court and that was what we wanted. For us it is a dream to play these games, and we are very pleased with what we did today.
