The Dutch team

Today, the Dutch team defeated the Dominican Republic in three sets (25-19, 25-16, 25-14) and Lonneke Sloetjes scored a match-high 23 points while Anne Buijs finished with 13 points. On the Dominican side, Yonkaira Pena scored 10 points and Eve Mejia 7 points.

The Dutch attack proved too much for the Dominicans on this day as they passed and set the ball with fluidity. They also did well on reception and counterattack.

The Dominican Republic was unable to mount a challenge or get together a run of several points throughout the contest.



The Olympic champions were without mercy against Azerbaijan who couldn’t win even single set. China celebrated a victory 25-17, 25-16 and 25-17 thanks to Xinyue Yuan who scored 17 points and Xiangyu Gong who added 13 points.

For Azerbaijan, Polina Rahimova won 11 points and was the only player in her team with double effect.
