Benefiting from changing service and attacks, Hong Kong managed to match up with TPE till 7-7 tie. Tseng Wan-Ling’s services and Liu Shuang Ling’s spikes helped TPE bag 5 points in a row to 12-7 lead. However, Ip Hoi Lun Helen stood out with two successive blocks to tie the score again at 12-12, forcing TPE to call a timeout. Back to the court, TPE strengthened their service and raised another tide of scoring from 14-13 to 21-13. Allowing only 2 more points, TPE sealed the second set in 25-15 with a sharp spike by Pi Wen-Yuan.
