SEA VLeague: Philippines falters vs Indonesia in 4, ends tournament winless


Just like in the first leg, the Philippine women’s national volleyball team concluded the 2023 Southeast Asian VLeague second leg without a win, falling to Indonesia in four sets, 25-22, 21-25, 22-25, 24-26, at the Chiang Mai 700th Anniversary Sports Complex.

Wilda Siti took charge after the Filipinas threatened to force a decider, contributing six of Indonesia’s last eight points to complete their comeback from a four-point deficit, securing their second consecutive bronze medal.

With the scores tied at 17-all, Alyssa Solomon, Minerva Maaya, and Bella Belen initiated a scorching 5-1 run, giving the Philippines a comfortable 22-18 lead in the fourth set.

Siti then successfully blocked Alinsug twice and executed a quick hit, propelling Indonesia’s four-point swing that equalized the score at 22-all. Alinsug responded with a down-the-line hit, and Camilla Lamina blocked Aulia Suci, pushing the Philippines to a match point advantage.

From that point onward, it was all Siti, as she secured three of the teams’ last four points to repel the determined Filipinas.

The Philippines commenced the game on a strong note, holding off the Indonesians until a service error from Tisya Amallya Putri granted the Filipinas a crucial separation at 24-22.

Ara Panique, who had just entered the game, subsequently blocked Putri in the following play, granting the Filipinas an early 1-0 lead over Indonesia before eventually surrendering the next two sets.

The Philippines concluded the second leg with a winless record of 0-3.
