The 4th round of contests in Group B of 2009-2010 Anta National Women’s Volleyball League started at 19:30 on December 12, 2009.

Irrespective of a loss in the first set, EWVT came back strong to take the next three sets and clean up on the opponent 3:1 (23:25, 25:20, 29:27, 25:17).  

Since the start of the league, every game of EWVT was warmly sought after by fans. The first three away courts of EWVT actually became its “home court”. When it returned to its own real home court, the warmth of the fans exploded so that the venue that can accommodate nearly 1500 people was crowded with people. The warmth of the fans was also a powerful drive for EWVT in its first home game.

Derby in the volleyball circles has been rare traditionally. Thus, the “Guangdong derby” between EWVT and Taishan Women’s Volleyball Team became a highlight of the league.

After the second technical timeout, EWVT continued to grow in momentum and enjoyed a run of 6:0 to lead 21:12. Then, EWVT did not give the opponent much chance and took the set 25:20 hands down.

The third set was the most brilliant focus of the game. After kickoff, the two teams fell into a jigsaw of scoring, raising the enthusiasm of fans and the atmosphere of the venue to a climax. Taishan Jianlong led 8:6 when the first technical timeout came. Then, the two sides tied at 11:11 and Taishan team requested its first timeout.
