UPDATE: Indonesia wins in 4 sets!


With the sweet and historic victory over Hong Kong on Thursday, 25-18, 25-21, 25-22, that ended a win drought in 36 years, the Philippine national women’s volleyball team are oozing with confidence to claim third spot in Pool A, with Thailand and Japan on top seats.

“If we’re going to display the same kind of grit and power we showed last Thursday, winning over Indonesia is very possible," Coach Shaq Delos Santos told ABS-CBN News.

A win by Filipinos in this game would mean they will face either South Korea or Kazakhstan in the next round. Otherwise, they will battle with the powerhouse and world top-ranked China.

The Philippine squad must stop Indonesia's spiker Aprilia Manganang, who made 28 total points in their good outing against Hong Kong.

Delos Santos said the one set loss of Indonesia to Hong Kong is a sign that they are beatable.

Game time at 8:00 pm.
