PWNVT ends Thailand tune-ups with draw against Toray Arrows

Having surrendered all of the five sets to Toray Arrows in a tune-up game last Sunday, the Philippine Women’s National  Volleyball Team carved a better result with a 28-26, 17-25, outcome in a rematch on Tuesday.

The Nationals displayed composure in the opening set that went the distance, pulling off a stunner against the Japan V. Premier League runners-up.

However, the Japanese knotted the set count in the ensuing set. The Filipinas then called it a day to prepare for their departure to Nakhon Ratchasima for the Southeast Asian Grand Prix.

With this, the national team ended its six-part series of friendly matches in Thailand with a 1-2-3 win-draw-loss record.

The sole win of the Philippines came at the expense of the Bangkok University Women’s Volleyball Team, which was spearheaded by Sutadta Chuewulim and Jutarat Montripila.

On the other hand, the three losses were dealt by the Under-23 and Seniors squads of Thailand, and the Japanese club team, Arrows. Meanwhile, the rematch against Thailand’s U-23 also ended with a draw.

The Philippines now sets its sight on the first leg of the SEA Grand Prix that starts on September 20, Friday.

The 14-strong lineup that will compete in the regional meet consists of team captain Aby Maraño, Jia Morado, Alohi Robins-Hardy, Eya Laure, Majoy Baron, Maddie Madayag, Roselyn Doria, Kalei Mau, Ces Molina, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, Mylene Paat, Jovelyn Gonzaga, Dawn Macandili, and Kath Arado.
