Powerhouse Thailand showed the Philippines and the home crowd that filled the Alonte Sports Arena here that it is still the Southeast Asian volleyball giant, defeating the host team, 25-21, 25-14, 25-20, in the knockout quarterfinals Tuesday night.

The Thais advanced in the semifinals of the 19th AVC Asian Senior Women's Volleyball Championship, while relegating the Philippines to the classification round for 5th and 8th spot.

Thailand will face South Korea in the Final Four Wednesday. The Filipinas will square off with Chinese-Taipei in the classification round.
