Strength takes Chinese Taipei closer to next round at Pool G


Maunabo, Puerto Rico, September 16, 2015 – Chinese Taipei outclassed Czech Republic 3-2 (25-23, 15-25, 24-26, 25-13, 15-9) at their second game at FIVB Women’s U20 World Championship Pool G in Maunabo. Chinese Taipei’s team fierceness traced a route for an important success over a tired side of Czech Republic.

Chinese Taipei maintained their ground in five sets by implementing a great streak of services, while Czech Republic, after gaining a 2-1 advantage, struggled in reception and attacking. This gradual decay in attacks by the Czechs was surprising because they started a very energetic match. 

That break during the game was created by low defenses of the Czech side and frightening offensive strategies by Chinese Taipei, guided by a captain that empowered them every step of the way, as Lee Yu was the lighthouse of the team.

The most prolific players of the match were Ya Tzu Chen from Chinese Taipei, who nailed 18 points, and teammate Tseng Wan-Ling who followed her three points behind. For Czech Republic, Gabriela Kopacova made 15 points, being 13 attacks, 1 block and 1 service, as the leading scorer on her side.
