Bangkok, Thailand, November 22, 2020 – Defending champions Tianjin overpowered Shanghai 3-0 in Jiangmen on Saturday to snap Shanghai’s six-match winning streak in the Chinese Women’s Volleyball League, xinhuanet.com reported.

In a rematch of last season’s best-of-five Finals where Tianjin won 3-0, Chinese international Li Yingying scored 18 points and star spiker Zhu Ting added 16 as Tianjin won 25-14, 25-18 and 25-11 to improve to a 6-1 record.

Middle blocker Wang Yuanyuan contributed three stuffs to Tianjin’s victory while Shanghai was out-blocked 9-2.

Louisa Lippmann of Germany scored 11 points and American Jordan Larson added seven before both of them were benched in the third set of the surprisingly lopsided encounter. Shanghai swallowed their first defeat in seven matches.

Earlier on Saturday, Guangdong came back from one set down to beat Yunnan 21-25, 25-22, 27-25 and 25-12 for their seventh win in eight matches and the top place in the standings.

Li Yao led Guangdong with 28 points, with Kelsey Robinson of the United States and Dobriana Rabadzhieva of Bulgaria adding 22 and 15 respectively.

Liaoning eased past Hebei 3-0 (25-10, 25-9, 25-19) to share a 6-1 record with Tianjin, Jiangsu and Shanghai.

In Saturday’s other action, Beijing pulled off a 3-0 (25-23, 25-23, 25-23) win against Henan, Shandong powered past Sichuan 3-0 (25-18, 25-12, 25-15) and Zhejiang brushed off Fujian 3-0 (25-18, 25-15, 28-26).
