Tianjin, China, May 4, 2019 – TPE managed to outplay Vietnam’s VTV Binh Dien Long An 3-0 (25-10, 25-22, 25-17) in the 5th-8th playoffs of the 2019 Asian Women’s Club Volleyball Championship at the Wuqing Sports Centre to next fight it out for the 5th position with DPR Korea’s 4.25 on Sunday.
Both sides started the match with their quickness to trade points till 10-10 before the Vietnamese reduced their unforced errors to reach a 13-10 edge. TPE called a timeout and pulled the opponent back to 14-14 tie after returning to the court. A terrific dig helped TPE earn a hard-won point from a long rally to retake the lead 18-16, forcing the Vietnamese to call their first timeout.
