Ust-Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan, May 27, 2017 – China’s Tianjin Bohai Bank completed a straight-sets victory (25-8, 25-10, 25-9) in under an hour’s time against Philippines’ Rebisco-PSL in Group B of the SMM 2017 Asian Women’s Club Samruk Kazyna Volleyball Championship.

Tianjin Bohai Bank’s coach Wang Baoquan was pleased to pick up their second win on Saturday.

“The team showed their power today and I am happy to earn three full points from this victory. But we have to learn from yesterday’s loss against Japan. It is the most interesting and most important match for us in the group stage because we had to learn from their speed and unique techniques,’ said Wang at the Boris Alexandrov Sports Palace.

Tianjin Bohai Bank clearly established a strong presence at the frontline, with Wang Ning at the middle and Yu Junwei at the flank. The Chinese side later unleashed strong serves to send the second technical time-out to their advantage at 16-6. Rebisco-PSL were not able to post good floor defence given the strong spikes of their opponents. Tianjin Bohai Bank rushed into a 25-8 win in the opening set.

In the second set, the Chinese side continued their scoring spree, knowing well where to find the unmanned spots on the Philippines’ defensive formation. Tianjin Bohai Bank captain Chen Liyi picked up on attacks from the wing. Alyja Santiago and Jovelyn Gonzaga furnished the points for Rebisco-PSL, but Tianjin Bohai Bank possessed a stronger offensive armoury, which earned them the second set, 25-10.

Rebisco-PSL entered the third set with renewed energy, fighting for the ball the sustain rallies against a strong team. But Tianjin Bohai Bank simply established a complete game, where each player on the floor had the power and skill to score. Hitter Li Ying charted her own share of attacks and did well from the service line. The Chinese side raced to a 25-9 finish in the third set.

Tianjin Bohai Bank’s Yu Junwei topped all scorers with 18 points from 16 attacks and two service aces.
