HÀ NỘI — Vietinbank ended their hope of defending their title, the VTV9-Bình Điền Cup, at the International Women’s Volleyball Tournament, after their loss yesterday.
Vietinbank was defeated 28-30, 17-25, 17-25 by the North Korean 4.25 Club in a Group B match at the Tây Ninh Province’s Gymnasium.
The loss means that Vietinbank will stay in the bottom position without a single point after two matches. They have no chance of advancing to the next round.
The first qualifying spot in the semi-finals went to Thailand’s Bangkok Glass, who beat China’s Fujian Club 25-18, 25-22, 10-25, 25-18 in an earlier match.
Second-place 4.25 and third-place Fujian will complete for the second qualifying spot in their meeting on tomorrow.
Today in Group A, VTV Bình Điền Long An will play Lienviet Postbank. The winner will go through to the semi-finals. Kazakhstan’s Altay will play China’s Yunnan in an earlier match. — VNS
