Moksri, Pimpichaya lead Thailand past Indonesia

Chatchu-on Moksri and Pimpichaya Kokram orchestrated defending champion Thailand’s rout of silver medalist Indonesia, 25-16, 25-17, 25-21, in the second leg of the ASEAN Grand Prix at the Sta. Rosa Multi-Purpose Sports Complex, Friday night.

Moksri — the reigning Best Spiker in the first leg — poured in 18 points built on 17 attacks. She also collected seven excellent digs to churn out a well-rounded performance that helped jumpstart Thailand’s title-retention bid.

On the other hand, Kokram hammered down 14 hits en route to 15 markers in the Finals rematch that lasted for 79 minutes. Flaunting their hard-hitting ways, the Thailand duo loaded a 43-31 attack differential against the Indonesians.

Grizzled hitters Pleumjit Thinkaow and Onuma Sittirak — who was adjudged the Most Valuable Player of the previous leg — chipped in seven and five markers, respectively. The former also anchored above the net with three of her team’s eight kill blocks.

Meanwhile, Pornpun Guedpard dished out 18 excellent sets.

Megawati Hangestri Pertiwi topped the Indonesians in scoring with 12 points, all coming from attacks. She was the lone double-digit scorer for her team. Arsela Nuari Purnama and Ratri Wulandari managed seven and six markers, respectively.

Thailand prepares to battle the Philippines on Saturday, October 5, at the same venue. On the other hand, Indonesia will try to barge into the win column against Vietnam tomorrow as well.
