Germany defeats Thailand for their first victory in Pool B

Key Points

  • ·      Christiane Furst top-scored with 16 points, five of which came from blocks – more than the entire block output of Thailand.
  • ·      The German service game worked well – seven players had at least one service ace.
  • ·      All Thai players at some point played in the match.
  • ·      Germany finished third in Pool B.

Germany opened the first set with Maren Brinker’s block. Thailand tried to counter with strong attacks from Wilavan Apinyapong, Nuekjang Thatdao and Onuma Sittirak, while their libero Piyanut Pannoy guarded their backcourt. Germany showed enthusiasm on court as their offensive power grew stronger enough to pressure the Thai players to look for creative ways to bridge the gap. Thailand managed to score on little scoring spurts but could not really spark a total run. Germany took the first set 25-21 on a block by Stefanie Karg on Onuma and an attack by Margareta Kozuch from the left flank.

The Thai fans were once again present to cheer on their team and were a big help as Thailand began the second set with a lead. Germany made few unforced errors after and trailed Thailand by a slim margin, until a total take over by the former happened mid-set. Kozuch and Furst great game on the attack and defence ignited more fire for other German players to join in. Although Thailand still had some firepower and closed the gap, Germany still took the second set 25-22 on another block on Onuma, this time by Heike Beier.

The third set started with a series of lead changes and deadlocks until Onuma slammed a powerful attack to give the lead to Thailand at the second technical timeout. After the break, Germany made few unforced errors that put them in the position to attack better. Germany gained momentum to protect their lead even though Thailand made some last minute surges. Germany closed the third set 25-21 to earn their first World Grand Prix victory this season.
