Rebisco and Choco Mucho lost two straight games at the Asian women’s Club Volleyball Championship.

/ 3 October 2021

Supreme Chonburi gave a difficult battle for Rebisco as the team did not have any chance to win a single set, 25-11, 25-16, 25-16, in the preliminary round of the women’s tournament.

Pleumjit Thinkaow was the key player who brought victory for Chonburi serving 12 points from 10 attacks and a pair of blocks.

Combined with Srithong and Waranya Srilaoong 11 markers each, and former Perlas Spikers import Chuewulim added seven, Chonburi is now at their second-straight win.

Rebisco, on the other hand, remains at the bottom with two losses after committing 26 errors.

The first frame was a cold welcome for Rebisco as Chonburi served them a 24-8 lead and ended the set with a 25-11 lead in favor of Chonburi.

The young Rebisco tried to recover in the second set with a closed-knit match until midframe with a score of 14-15, but Chonburi took over and ended the set with a 25-16 lead.

The third set was still not in favor of Rebisco despite an early advantage of a 7-5 lead as Chonburi quickly recovered and ended the set with a 25-16 lead.

At the same time, Choco Mucho, like Rebisco, is still winless in the tournament.

The nine-time Kazakhstan women’s volleyball league titlist Zhetysu toppled Choco Mucho with three straight-set wins, 22-25, 19-25, 15-25.

Anastasiya Gurbanova led Zhetysu with 19 points leading the team with a secured share in Pool A, while Kalei Mau delivered 11 points for Choco Mucho.

The first frame was filled with errors from Zhetysu, committing five service errors, but Choco Mucho failed to take that chance and faltered with a three-gap lead score, giving the set win to Zhetysu.

Choco Mucho tried to redeem themselves in the second frame as Tin Tiamson released eight points combined with back-to-back kills from spikers Mylene Paat, but Zhetysu managed to turn the game around and ended the set with a 25-19 lead.

The weary Choco Mucho failed to bounce back as Zhetysu ended the game with the biggest gap score among the three sets at a 25-15 lead.
