The top four teams from each of the four round-robin pools will proceed to the tournament’s second pool round at OKBet.
Thailand Championship controlled the game and outplayed Korea in every way. Pimpichaya Kokram, her opponent, set the match high with 21 points, including an ace and a block. Her assault success percentage was 63%. Outside hitter Ajcharaporn Kongyot contributed another 12 points to the win, with a success percentage of 58%. Park Jeongah, Korea’s outside hitter and captain, was the only player to score in double figures, with 11 points at OKBet.
Lee Dahyeon of Korea scored the opening point of the game with a fast spike down the center. The Koreans took a one-point lead twice more in the opening set, at 3-2 on an ace by opposite Lee Seonwoo and 5-4 on an ace by Park Jeongah. With Pimpichaya on fire in attack, Thailand scored six consecutive goals to take a 10-5 lead and never looked back. Pimpichaya added an ace for 18-8 to her eight-point performance in the opening set, and Ajcharaporn won 25-13.
Thailand took a 5-2 lead in the second set thanks to a three-point sequence capped by an ace from middle Thatdao Nuekjang. Korea stayed up with Thailand’s 14-11 victory by improving their performance on both offense and defense. Pimpichaya completed a stunning super rally for 15-11, and Thatdao added another ace for 16-11 to kick off a five-point sequence to 19-11 and effectively decide the set. Thailand cruised to a 25-15 victory with several of their reserve players on the court, shaped up by outside Chatchu-On Moksri with a successful swing for the last point at OKBet.
After colliding with Ajcharaporn’s elbow during a frantic defensive action at 8-7 in the third set, Thai libero Piyanut Pannoy was forced to leave the court for the remainder of the match. Aside from that, the squad had little problems as they sailed to another landslide set victory. After a backslide set by playmaker and captain Pornpun Guedpard, it was Chatchu-On who delivered the 25-14 victory.
“Today, we played with delight and attempted to have fun.” “If we have too much tension, it’s not healthy for us or our game,” Pimpichaya remarked after the game. “It’s fantastic that we won today and advanced to the next round, where we’ll aim to win even more, but first, we have one more game in this pool to play and we’ll do our best again, so on our day off tomorrow, we’ll concentrate on our training.”
Thailand’s last Pool C game will be against the Dominicans at 14:00 local time (12:00 GMT) on Saturday, while Korea will look to end the competition on a high note against Croatia at 17:30. (15:30).
Pool C was the first to begin Thursday’s play schedule, with Canada defeating Kazakhstan 3-0 (25-14, 25-16, 25-11) in Lodz.
