WCH 2018 W: Italy keep the perfect score, easy win for Japan over Puerto Rico!

823 1

The Italian girls simply ran over the Thai team in straight sets 3-0 (25-15, 25-12, 25-15), while Japan outplayed Puerto Rico 3-0 (25-22, 25-14, 25-18).

 

The Thais had no answer to the speed, power and precision of Italy and were spiked to a standstill as they received an uncharacteristically heavy beating by 25-15, 25-12, 25-15 in 68 minutes.

With this highly impressive victory, Italy improved their win-loss record to a perfect 7-0 while Thailand dropped to 3-4 after a second consecutive defeat in Osaka.

Paola Egonu led Italy's scoring with 15 points, captain Cristina Chirichella added 12 and Anna Danesi scored 11, with three blocks. 

Sittirak Onuma (13) and Apinyapong Wilavan (7) contributed 20 points between them on a night when little went right for the tiring Thais against a fiercely determined Italy.

Erika Araki tallied a team-high 12 points as Japan downed Puerto Rico.

No 'perfect score'! Italy lost one set to China! The only 'perfect score' in this World Championship is Serbia's!

TUR W: The final series have begun – tie-break gives Eczacibasi advantage!

Probably Vakif will be from the top in 2018 to the bottom in 2019. Tijana will beat Zhu. Nice to see Beyza back. Vakif should but Rahimova, waive to Zhu and Ebrar. Need some good players. Reply

BRA W: Sheilla ends 3-year retirement to play for Barueri?

They all do that. She will recover physical and technical conditions like the others (Dani Lins, Thaísa) and then goes to a better team. Reply

ITA M: Perugia get the lead again, Trentino stay in the race for the finals!

Dont be suprised if both these series go to a 5th match. The pressure is growing and showing on the faces of the coaches and players. Reply
