The Dominican Republic defeated Pool 11 hosts Thailand in a breathtaking encounter in Bangkok that lasted five sets (31-29, 13-25, 30-28, 20-25, 16-14) to tie their win-loss ratio in the 2019 FIVB Women’s Volleyball Nations League at 4-4.



The Dominican Republic players made a huge number of unforced errors compared to Thailand (30-19) on their Day 2 encounter of the third week in the 2019 VNL but redeemed themselves by out-blocking the rivals (14-8) and won a tie-breaker. Brayelin Martínez shone for the Caribbean side with 36 points (3 kill blocks). Chatchu-On Moksri made 23 for Thailand (3-5 record), while Pleumjut Thinkaow set up 4 kill blocks. The fourth victory gives the Dominican Republic one more than its 3-12 total last season. Thailand have already won more Volleyball Nations League matches in 2019 (3) than in 2018 (2).



Turkey still have great momentum in the tournament as they achieved their fourth win in a row, seventh in total, to claim the provisional top spot in the overall Preliminary Round standings. Driven by a teenager outside hitter Ebrar Karakurt (18 points), Kübra Çalışkan (4 kill blocks), and powerful team’s serving effort (11 aces), Turkey swept Bulgaria, who remained the only winless team in the tournament (0-8 record), in Pool 11. It was the first ever meeting between these two in the VNL. Gergana Dimitrova scored 11 points for the losing side.
