Then Dinh Thi made 24 points for Vietin Bank, while Kim Hue Pham Thi added 15, Thur Le Thanh had 14, Xuan Doan Thi chipped in 12.

Although Rebisco-PSL had a better distribution from setter Kim Fajardo, who had 48 of the team’s 52 excellent sets compared to Vietin Bank, which only had a total of 28 excellent sets, it did not translate more points as the Vietnamese team scored more on attacks (66-44).
