Match Result
DOM demonstrated impressive heavy-weighted spikers at the beginning, but was not much effective
before dominant blockers of JPN #7, Makiko Horai and #9 Sachiko Sugiyama
Fast and confusing multiple attacks seen by rather short-heighted two spikers of JPN #15 Kana Oyama
and Kaoru Sugayama put a lot of pressure on DOM's blockers and diggers.
DOM struggled to come back, but was not enough to overcome spirited backcourt defense
skills of JPN
