Match Results
USA was not fully ready had a slow start in the first set with many unforced errors in general. KOR was in fight mood from
the start and continued their efforts to win a close game with some good diggings.
However USA came back very sharply in the second set with overwhelming power over Korea, with heavyweighted
spikes, big blocks, and great offensive multiple attacks, winning 25 vs 13.
In the 3rd set, KOR demonstrated spirited defensive skills in the backcourt and performed many "smart" attacks that made
some confusions to USA defense.
The 4th and 5th sets games were so close between the two teams, but each performed different
aspect of volleyball games.
Korea seemed to be more focused on serve and digging, leading to a successful counter-attack
process but USA put more pressured on block and power attack which resulted in a considerable number
of unforced errors in spike
