Sharp attacks secured Germany's victory by straight sets

Germany began the second match of the day with sharp style known for this tough team.
Superior hittings from wings and middle took Germany to win the set without too many struggles from Dominican Republic.  The situation in the second set, however, was turned around as Dominican improved by enhancing blocks.  Germany was unable to break through effectively and struggled to score with Dominican leading by 3 points.  Just before the second technical timeout, Germany changed stretagy and confused Dominican by variations, which soon reflected on the scoreboard and took Germany to reach TTO first.  Unable to see through the fog, Dominican became vulnerable on the court.  Germany grasped the chance to invade further as Dominican struggled to sustain, and secured the set by 25-17.

The third set began with an equal drag of points until Germany managed to pull away by few more points given by mistakes from Dominican.  Messed up by own mistakes, Dominican was unable to organise effective attacks which soon led to a straight 6-point loss.  Germany pressed on and pocketed the match by 3-0.
