VTL: Paat makes it rain on Proflex as Nakhon Ratchasima ends round on a high


Mylene Paat’s Nakhon Ratchasima QminC moved to over .500 after clobbering Proflex RSU, 25-21, 25-18, 27-25, in the 2021-22 Volleyball Thailand League, Saturday at the Nimibutr Stadium in Bangkok.

The 5-foot-11 spiker continued to be Nakhon Ratchasima’s main offensive weapon as they went up to 4-3, currently at fourth place, and will advance to the second round.

Struggling from the service line in the previous games, Paat atoned for it in a big way this time. She dominated the department. She once even had a sequence in the second period where she drilled three straight aces.

The Adamson University product ended with 24 points with five aces. Her scoring went up a notch each set with five points in the first, eight in the second, and 11 in the third.

With Proflex holding on, the Filipina import finished their foes in the first set. She nailed two of the final three points, to take the early upper hand, 25-21.

Knotted at 3 in the early goings of the second frame, Nakhon Ratchasima blasted six consecutive points, punctuated by Paat’s three straight service aces, to pull away en route to a 25-17 tally.

Tied at 25, Kanyaphat Khunmat buried a crosscourt kill before a block ended RSU’s run, for the win.

Khunmat and Chitaporn Kamlangmak chipped in eight points apiece for Nakhon Ratchasima. Meanwhile, Patcharaporn Sittisad and Amornthip Khomtong got six each.

Thatdao Kanwitthayi was only fielded in the second and third sets but was still the high woman for Proflex. She had nine points alongside Arisa Promnok with the same tally.

Proflex slipped to 2-5 for sixth place but have assured themselves of a spot in the next leg.

The second round will only have six teams. The bottom two squads, Black Power and Kasetsart, face elimination after the first round which will end tomorrow, Sunday.
