HÀ NỘI — North Korean 4.25 Club won 25-15, 25-19, 22-25, 25-20 against Thailand’s Bangkok Glass for the last semi-final ticket in the International Women’s Volleyball Tournament being held in Tây Ninh Province.

The Korean side met with a little difficulty in the third set before winning the match, maintaining hopes of defending their top position at the Việt Nam’s annual event.

In a later Group B match, China’s Fujian beat former champions Vietinbank 2-1 in a game where both teams had no chance of advancing to the next stage.

In the semi-finals tomorrow, Yunnan Club of China will play 4.25 while Bangkok Glass will meet VTV Bình Điền Long An.

The final is on Sunday with a total bonus of VNĐ1 billion (US$45,000) to be given to the teams, in which the champions will receive $15,000. — VNS
