And it took an FIVB no. 79 ranked team to force the no. 10 in the world Koreans to use their main weapon.

The Philippine national women’s volleyball team gave South Korea a scare in Pool E quarterfinals classification round Sunday inside the jam-packed Alonte Sports Arena in Binan, Laguna.

South Korea defeated the gritty Filipinas, 25-23, 25-18, 25-12, to improve its carryover record to 2-0 and get in a good position for the top seed in the knockout crossover quarterfinals starting Tuesday.

The Pinay spikers, who slid to 0-2 carryover slate, were undaunted facing KYK and the unbeaten Koreans.
