Thailand’s Piyarat Buddawong gathered 15 points and emerged as the main scorer of the game, well supported by teammate Aonanong Saisri, who came from the bench to complete 10 shots. The same number was capped by Mexico’s Uxue Amaya Guereca and Melanie Parra Quintero added 9, all of them from successful spikes.
The first set wasn’t decided until the two final rallies, as the point-by-point basis was rock-solid with Buddawong and Castro leading their sides. An unforced error gave Thailand a 25-23 score and the Mexican remained out of focus until a Thai 11-7 right next, a gap that Buddawong transformed into a 25-20. Still haunted by errors, Mexico slowly deflated and Thailand marched to the three-nil win with a final 25-19.
