Yosvani poured in 39 points, including 13 kills, to go along with four blocks and four service aces to complete her third triple crown of the season (at least three kills, blocks and service aces each).
Yosvani was held back in the first and second sets by two crucial blocks from 온라인카지노 KB Sonbo’s foreign-born outside hitter Andres Biyena (real name Biyena).
Trailing 20-21 late in the first set, Bijena scored a timed attack point followed by a block to turn the tide.

Late in the second set, with the score tied at 22-21, Bijena blocked a quick open attack from Joswani on the left side. The ball hit Bijena’s hand and fell to the court, and Samsung Fire players failed to pick it up, making it a two-point game.
KB Sonbo quickly closed out the second set with an open goal by Bijena and an interception by Bae Sang-jin.
Yosubani, whose attack success rate in the second set dropped to 30 percent, came alive in the third set.

Samsung Fire was down early in the fifth set, but finally broke through on the serve of Mongolian Eddie, who was selected as the Asia Quarterfinalist.
Eddie hit a service ace from the end of the court to tie the score at 4-4, and on his next serve, he forced KB Sonbo setter Hwang Seung-bin to commit an over net error.
When Bijena’s opening attack was blocked by Kim Jun-woo, Samsung Fire took a 6-4 lead.
Afterward, Yosubani’s cool back-attack attack helped Samsung Chemicals to accumulate pure points, and the team maintained its three-point advantage until the end.
