Canada to play for 9th place at U21

SOFIA, Bulgaria, October 1, 2021 - Canada outclassed Thailand to claim a 3-0 (25-20, 25-16, 25-17) victory and progress to Sunday’s match for the ninth place.

With minor exceptions early into the sets, the North Americans were well in control of the scoreboard and cruised to an emphatic win.

Their servers contributed as many as nine aces to the victory, against none for the Asian team. Canada outplayed Thailand in spiking and blocking as well.

Sub-in Jonathan Pickett hammered the winner to tally a match-high 14 points. His teammates Cory Schoenherr and Samuel Cooper added 12 points apiece, while none of the Thai players managed to reach the double digits.
