VNL: Kokram, Moksri power Thailand’s straight set beating of Canada

Thailand exhibited its strong form after cruising to a straight-set sweep over Canada, 25-19, 25-22, 26-24, in the curtain-opener of Week 2 of the FIVB Volleyball Nations League, Tuesday afternoon, at the SMART Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

Canada began the contest on the wrong foot after committing 10 total errors in the opening set. The Thais made sure to capitalize on their opponents’ lapses as they secured the first set by way of a 25-19 decision.

Pimpichaya Kokram then sustained Thailand’s momentum in the second set after producing six points of her own en route to a 25-22 victory.

Shannon Winzer’s squad fought hard in the third set but a block at the net by Bamrungsuk Hattaya sealed the game for her team with a 26-24 win.

“Just like the last time we played the Philippines, we prepared for the Canada team,” claimed Pimpichaya with the help of a translator. “In our team, we play as we can and try our best.”VNL-2022-Canada-vs.-Thailand-Chatchu-on-Moksri-4013-1 VNL: Kokram, Moksri power Thailand's straight set beating of Canada 2022 VNL Season News Volleyball  - philippine sports news
