Paat drops 26 as Nakhon Ratchasima score first win in VTL


Mylene Paat and Nakhon Ratchasima finally scored their breakthrough win in the 2021-22 Volleyball Thailand League, outlasting Nakornnont in four sets, 26-24, 25-21, 20-25, 25-18, Wednesday at the MCC Hall at The Mall Bangkapi in Bangkok.

The 5-foot-11 Filipina import continued her excellent showing, this time dropping 26 points and she did it in a variety of ways with 21 attacks, three kill blocks, and two service aces – and it finally resulted in a win.

Paat has been the one consistent player for Nakhon Ratchasima throughout the season, tallying 22 and 27 points in their first two outings.

The Chery Tiggo standout also outperformed Nakornnont captain Kuttika Kaewpin, who played for Creamline in the Premier Volleyball League from 2017 to 2019, ending with just 19 points.

The victory propelled Paat’s squad to their first win in three games, hiking their win-loss card to 1-2.

Nakhon Ratchasima looked determined to enter the win column right from the get-go, eking out a close 26-24 extended first set before taking the second, 25-21.

However, the Kuttika Kaewpin-led Nakornnont clawed back after denying their foes a sweep, nabbing the third frame, 25-20, to extend the match.

But Paat and Nakhon Ratchasima finished the match in the fourth salvo with a dominant 25-18 scoreline for the win.

Patcharaporn Sittisad backstopped the Adamson University product with 19 points including six in the all-important fourth frame, while Karina Krause chipped in 12 points.

Donphon Sinpho was the only other Nakornnont player in double figures with 13 points as they absorbed their first loss of the tournament, falling to 2-1.
