China defeated Puerto Rico in straight sets on Saturday in the 2006 women's volleyball World Championships.

The Olympic and World Cup dual champion defeated the opponents 28-26, 25-14 and 25-22 in one and a half hours.

"China is really strong for us, so the game was good experience for us to learn many lessons. China's power is consistently strong and that is the difference with us." said Puerto Rico's head coach Juan Carlos Nunez

China came across a scary moment when Puerto Rico led 8-6 at the start of the opening set and extended the lead to 18-16. But China soon tied the game at 19-19 with a 4-1 run. After both sides tied at 26-26, Purto Rico had two errors and allowed China to take the set 28-26.

Chen Zhonghe, head coach of China, expressed his dissatisfaction on China's performance in the first set and said: "We didn't play well in the first set. We couldn't even reach our normal level, especially our younger players who need more stability. So it is a tough first set."

China took the overall charge from the second set after both teams tied at 5-5 and pulled away to 19-13 and never looked dangerous. China ended the set with 25:14 with an 8-1 run concluded by Wang Yimei.

Wang led the Chinese game with 17 points, Yang Hao and Liu Yanan both added 11.

Leading by Tatiana Encarnacion, who scored 10 points, Puerto Rico put up a fight in the third set to lead 11-8 but the Chinese didn't save their spiking fire power. After leading 22-21, China finished the match with an excellent 3-1 run.

"After a good second set, we made too many mistakes in the third. Puerto Rico blocked well, but our blocking was not so successful," said Chen.

China will face the Netherlands on Sunday, the last day of the group round second stage.
