Bagunas drops 21 as Oita Miyoshi absorbs meltdown vs JTEKT

AICHI, JAPAN — Bryan Bagunas and Oita Miyoshi suffered a five-set meltdown, 25-20, 25-21, 23-25, 24-26, 9-15, at the hands of JTEKT in the 2020-21 Japan V. League Division 1 Men’s Tournament, Sunday afternoon at the Kariya City General Athletic Park Gymnasium.

Bagunas delivered 21 points on 16 hits and five block kills, but was not enough from preventing his team’s collapse in the last three sets.

Fellow import Curtis Stockton also brought the goods for Oita Miyoshi with 34 points on 30 attacks.

Weiss Adler were on its way to its first win after nabbing the first two sets. Unfortunately, though, the Stings pulled out all the necessary stops to extend the match to a deciding fifth set.

From there, it was all JTEKT to complete the come-from-behind victory and hike its record to 6-2.

Oita Miyoshi remained winless in eight games.

Yuji Nishida lifted the Stings with 27 points built on 24 hits, two service aces, and a block.

Bagunas and Oita Miyoshi look for their first win on Saturday, 4:00 pm against the Toray Arrows at the Sumida Ward General Gymnasium.
