TEHRAN, Sep. 18 (MNA) – Iranian women’s national volleyball team gained a deserved 3-0 win against Australia at the 6th Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) Women’s Cup.

In a Tuesday match held at the Chartchai Hall, the Iranian squad made a clean sweep against Australia to gain its third consecutive win in the event, advancing to the quarterfinals.

Led by 15 points Maede Borhani, Iran won three straight sets (25-17, 25-22, 25-20) and secured top spot in Pool C with 7 points while Australia finished second.

“We had a good game plan in this match against Australia and my players played according to the plan. We made a good rotation including the change of libero.

We will try our best again in the next match,” Iran head coach Javad Mehregan commented after the match, AVC reported.

The 6th edition of AVC Women’s Cup kicked off on September 16 in Thailand’s Nakhon Ratchasima and goes through September 23.
