Indonesia cracks into win column, sends Vietnam reeling

Coming off yesterday’s deflating loss to defending champion Thailand, Indonesia vented its ire on the win-hungry Vietnam, 29-27, 25-20, 23-25, 25-17, to capture its breakthrough win in the ASEAN Grand Prix second leg, Saturday at the Sta. Rosa Multi-Purpose Sports Complex. 

Megawati Hangestri Pertiwi seized command for the Indonesians, who finished as the silver medalists in the opening leg. She put up a game-high 21 points built on 18 attacks and three blocks.

Ratri Wulandari and Arsela Nuari Purnama also supplied Indonesia’s balanced offensive assault. Wulandari poured in 18 markers anchored on 13 spikes, while Purnama contributed 15 points and 14 excellent digs.

Agustin Wulandari dealt damage from the service line, dropping four aces to finish with 11 markers. Meanwhile, Wilda Siti Nurfadhilah Sugandi chimed in 10 points.

Indonesia playmaker Tri Retno Mutiara Lutfi flaunted her two-way arsenal. She delivered on offense with 24 excellent sets, and also made her presence felt on defense with 11 excellent digs.

With the win, Indonesia rise to an even 1-1 card. The Vietnamese, on the other hand, remained winless in five matches dating back to the first leg.

Thi Kieu Trinh Hoang topped the Vietnam side with 16 points to go along with 13 excellent digs. Thi Hur Luu managed 14 points in a losing cause.

Indonesia shall face the host country, Philippines, on October 6 at the same venue. On the same day, Vietnam will try to avoid a winless campaign with an upset over powerhouse Thailand.
