In this match, the Vietnamese women’s team welcomed the return of Truong Thao My after a long absence. This is a quality supplement in these difficult times. The Vietnamese women’s team entered the match with the task of winning to raise hopes of competing for a medal. But it was those pressures that made them enter the game quite badly and were overwhelmed by Malaysia. The Vietnamese women’s team only scored 10 points after the first half while letting the opponent have 19 points.

However, after a disappointing first half, the Vietnamese women’s team returned strongly in the second half. The coordination and defense have become more coordinated and coherent. Since then, accurate throws also appear with increasing frequency. After the first half of the match, Malaysia temporarily led 36-31.
The impressive comeback in the second half was a springboard for the Vietnamese women’s team to sublimate in the second half of the match. The effective attacks of Thao My, Mailee Jones or Tieu Duy helped the Vietnamese women’s team from chasing to become the leading team.

However, difficulties continued to surround the Vietnamese women’s team when Tran Thi Anh Dao and Truong Thao My respectively left the field due to injury. This caused the Vietnamese women’s team to lose their physical strength in the late game.
Malaysia took advantage of this loophole to counterattack. From a distance of 11 points, the gap between the two teams is only 2 points. However, the Vietnamese women’s team promptly woke up and defended effectively. Thao Vy scored the decisive point of the match with a successful basket phase, creating a safe distance when the match had 10 seconds left.
