The Philippines gave up its fourth loss in as many games in the 14th Asian Women’s U18 Volleyball Championship, suffering a 25-20, 25-17, 25-8 sweep at the hands of Chinese-Taipei, Thursday evening at Nakhon Pathom Sports Center Gymnasium in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand.

Behind Kimberly Rubin, the Philippines kept in step with Chinese-Taipei in the early part of the opening set but succumbed to the powerful hits of their opponents late.

Chen Seeye and Lu Chianwen joined hands in the second set, powering Chinese-Taipei to an easy 2-0 lead before putting the finisher in the third frame.

“We lost two games in a row. Therefore, the today’s victory returned the positive mentality to the team,” said Chinese-Taipei head coach Chen Mei-Ching.
