A surprising start of Toray Arrows Ōtsu and their unbeaten streak at the start of the Japanese V-League has been interrupted!



The league silver medalists, Hisamitsu Springs Kobe were those to spoil Toray’s plans to remain invincible after five rounds 3-1 (25-23, 25-19, 20-25, 25-23) in the match played in front of 3,100 viewers in Okayama’s „Zip Arena“.

Hisamitsu’s Miyu Nagaoka with 23 points and Yuki Ishii with 22 outplayed Saori Sakoda, who scored 24 points and Saki Minemura who had 14 on the other side.

Reigning champions NEC Red Rockets Kawasaki have finally found their play from the last season as they scored second win in a row and now have 2-3 score.

As hosts in Suzuka, Red Rockets defeated Denso Airybees Nishio 3-1 (18-25, 25-23, 25-21, 25-17) with 22 points from Risa Shiragaki. Croatian Mia Jerkov collected 19 in the losing team.

Twenty-three points from Azeri girl Polina Rahimova weren’t enough for Toyota Auto Body Queenseis Kariya to score win over Okayama Seagulls.

Ageo Medical Group Medics suffered another defeat, fourth so far, after tiebreaker against Hitachi Rivale Ibaraki.

Hisae Watanabe scored 25 in Hitachi, American Lauren Paolini added 23. On the other side, American Kelly Murphy noted 28, Erika Araki had 27.
