Petron Tri Activ spikers didn’t have enough power to outsmart the EST Cola volleybelles from Thailand after a straight sweep, (3-0), 25-12, 25-12, 25-23 at the San Juan Arena earlier this Friday evening, April 08, 2016 of the on-going Philippine Super Liga (PSL) Invitational League 2016.
It was a very slow start of the Pinay spikers as the Thai belles enjoyed their unstoppable attacks above the net in the first two sets. The combination plays from a good reception from the Thai libero helped much the front row attackers to kill the Mikasa inside the volleyball court.
But the Philippine squad tried to bounce back in the 3rd set after executing some solid blocks against Sutadta above the net and enjoyed a comfortable lead, 12-8. But the Thai spikers eventually found their rhythm as they tried to run and tied the score at 20 all.
Due to some unforced errors from the Pinay belles, EST Cola claimed the victory of the match at 25-23.

Who would really think that kind of exemplary performance inside the volleyball court of the Thai National Women’s Volleyball team in the 2013 Asian Women Volleyball Championship? Asian volleyball has not been that exciting without Thailand in every volleyball tournament.
The strong Thais have outsmarted the determined Japanese in three straight sets, (3-0), 25-22, 25-18, 25-17. In their opening set, both squads showcased a see-saw of scores inside the court, trying to outscore one another. But Thailand showed much better reception than Japan and the match ended at 25-22.
In the second set, the Japanese were not able to capitalize their A-game and left behind by the Thais in 25-18. Though, they have shown much effort in their attacks but good reception from the Thais’ squad helped them a lot for better hits above the net.
The last set was Japan’s chance to rise from the dead but to no avail. The Japanese powerhouse struggled the same situation to outsmart the Thais. They didn’t have enough juice to force the Thais to extend the match. With a good finish, Thailand ended the set in 25-17. Good job from both teams and they showed a very high quality Asian volleyball this year. Congratulations!

Despite their effort to win a game, it didn’t happen. What’s wrong?
Their guest player, Pacharee Samuang from Thailand didn’t have much power to bring her team in a winning moment.
