2010 Asian Women's Club Volleyball Championship heats up
Gresik City, Indonesia, June 29, 2010 – The People's Republic of Korea Women’s Volleyball Team, JT Marvelous of Japan, VTV Binh Dien of Vietnam and Federbrau of Thailand all recorded victories on day four of the 2010 Asian Women’s Club Volleyball Championship on Tuesday.

The winners of the tournament will advance to the FIVB World Club Championships in Doha, Qatar from December 14-21, to compete against Italy's Bergamo and Prisons Kenya, who have already qualified.
The PRK Women’s Volleyball Team took 56 minutes to claim a straight-sets (25-11, 25-12, 25-14) win over Iran’s Zobahan.
Zobahan started poorly in defense with PRK easily sniping off reception errors. And while Zobahan could not execute their plays properly, PRK dazzled the crowd with their combination plays. By the second set, PRK continued to hammer down their attacks onto the Iranians, who all remained flat-footed on defense. Kim Yong Mi and Han Ok Sim consistently converted their attacks for the eventual victors. The final set was no different, even if Zobahan’s Tatiana Alvez Dossantos and Zahra L.Vahedi helped resurrect the teams attack. Jong Jin Sim’s powerful spikes helped PRK see out the match and the victory.
Japan’s JT Marvelous opted to utilize a relatively smaller line-up for the match against Petrokimia Gresik of Indonesia. The strategy paid off as Marvelous were able to secure victory in three sets (25-5, 25-10, 25-8).
Chiemi Chiba and Yuki Nishiyama took on the scoring reins for the Japanese with a total of 12 points each. The Indonesians, on the other hand, could not orchestrate their plays, as they had difficulty receiving the ball. There was no clear leader who would serve as the spark plug for the Indonesians. Petrokimia Gresik coach Laiyan Viktor tried to suit up his other players in search for other offensive options, but the Indonesians suffered dearly from their dismal floor defence. This marvelous victory on Tuesday marks their third win in the competition.
VTV Binh Dien of Vietnam and KT&G Ariels of Korea opened the day’s proceedings with a five-set thriller with Dien picking up the win 3-2 (25-19, 16-25, 25-23, 18-25, 15-11) to nab their first victory in the tournament.
The initial set revealed an aggressive Vietnamese team, who relied on their simple, yet well-executed plays. The following set saw Korea fight back, with Lee Jung Ok and Lee Yeon Joo proving their scoring skills once more. Vietnam pulled off with a third set win with Dinh Vo Thi Kim and captain Hoa Nguyen Thi Ngoc putting in precious points for the team. Korea did not give up though and forced a final set tie-break. Vietnam pulled away towards victory as they were able to capitalize on their front line to block off Korea’s attacks. Anaseini Seniloli of Vietnam topped the scores with 24 points.
The highly anticipated match between Thailand’s Federbrau and Kazakhstan’s Zhetyssu ended with the former winning in straight sets, (25-15, 25-18, 25-20). Malika Kanthong, captain Wilawan Apinyapong and Onuma Sittrak proved to be the inspiration that the Thais needed to overcome the taller line-up of Kazakh players. Olga Nassedkina played a good all-around game for Zhetyssu, but she could not get enough scoring support from the rest of the team. Nootsara Tomkom’s masterful orchestration of offense and the team’s excellent defence continued Thailand’s winning streak in the tournament.
