Match Descriptive

Korea beat Dominican Republic 3-0 (25-20, 25-21, 25-16) - duration 1:11
13-Nov, start time: 12:35, end time: 13:46 - Attendance: 508

Chang So-Youn, selected the Most Important Player, led a well balanced
Korean attack and the Dominicans never were a rival of consideration,
failing in their reception and also in the blocking.
In the first set, Korea resisted a Dominican halfway reaction who took a
13-12 lead and recuperated during a seven point rally with Chang providing 3
spikes and a block. The second set was pretty even with the score tied 10
times, the last at 17. Lim Yu-Jin and Chang scored two points to give the
Koreans a lead that never relinquished. The Dominican came within one point
at 21-20, but serves too long by Priscilla Rivera and Annerys Vargas gave
away the chance to get back into the match. The Koreans took a quick lead at
5-0 in the third and never looked back with Jung Dae-Young joining Chang and
Lim in the decisive offense. Chang had 16 points for Korea with 15 spikes
out of 25 attempts, Lim had 14 and Jung cooperated with 11. For Dominican
Republic, Milagros Cabral had 14 points and Yudelkis Bautista and Corisis
Rodriguez 9 apiece.
