Australia ended their two match series with host team East Asian University in Shimonoseki earlier this evening with a 3 set to 1 loss.

The young Aussies played some very good volleyball in the first set,totally dominating their Japanese opponents at the net with their block and controlling the aggressive Japanese serving with some very consistent passing. However, the team struggled to find consistency in attack, missing numerous transition for point opportunities due to a lack of ball control and inaccurate setting. Australia won the set 25-23 after leading 21-15.

The second set again saw Australia creating many opportunities to score points on their own serve through some very good blocking and defence. However setting accuracy was again a key issue for the team and despite recording 5stuff bocks for the set, and leading 18-13, the team could only manage to kill 2 balls from 13 attacks in the last part of the set as they lost all momentum. East Asian University played well to get back into the set and defended 1 set point from Australia before taking the lead and winning the set 25-27.

This proved to be a pivotal turning point in the game as the young Australians completely lost focus and confidence and continued to struggle in attack for the remaining two sets. Despite numerous personnel changes, the team could not find their rhythm and lost the match 3 sets to 1.

The team was given a good lesson this evening in the importance of side out offence and attacking high and long against smaller opponents.

The team attended a post match dinner with the Shimonoseki organising committee and the East Asian University team in good spirits and were very thankful for the opportunity to play and be hosted in such friendship and camaraderie.

Australia travels to Hiroshima tomorrow for a further 2 days of practice and competition at a Japanese University All Stars camp.
