China's women's volleyball team went looking for answers to an inconsistent run at the women's world volleyball championships. The team met Peru on Wednesday, but a victory would not guarantee a spot in the quarterfinals for the Chinese side.

Peru took an early lead at the start of the match, but the two-time champions and current world number 3 China soon took control. Peru saw China tie the first set at 5-5 on Wang Yimei's big-time spike. But the Peruvians would keep it close. The score stood at 14-11 when China took command by notching nine of the next 11 points. Peru got its shots-in, but could not catch up. Wang Yimei came through with some more timely hits...and teammate Xue Ming demonstrated China's soft-power game as well. China cruised to a 25-17 first set victory.

Peru again saw an early lead evaporate in the second set. China collected three points in a row to go up 8-5. Peru rebounded to lead 12-11, but then the South Americans went off-target with their power game, and committed a slew of unforced errors to give China the set 25-22.

17th-ranked Peru fought hard early in the third set, and took an 8-7 lead before China built another big advantage. Peru struggled to cut the lead to one, but could not match China's power at the end. The Chinese team finished the match with an ace, and a 25-21 third set triumph. The Chinese women marched to their 11th win in 12 matches against their South American opponents.
