Bagunas falls to injury as Oita bows to Toray in V.League

Bryan Bagunas suffered a right knee injury in the first set as Oita Miyoshi dropped its third straight game.

Weisse Adler yielded to Toray, 21-25, 17-25, 18-25, in the 2020-21 Japan V.League Division 1 men’s tournament, Saturday at the Kanaoka Park Gymnasium in Osaka.

The 6-foot-5 star got hurt during the first set and was immediately rushed to the hospital.

“Pag depensa ko tapos may tumunog. Akala ko wala lang pero nung tumalon ako wala na,” Bagunas told Tiebreaker Times, recalling what happened.

“As of now x-ray pa lang ang ginawa sa akin. Wala naman damage ang bone ko pero possible daw na MCL, pero need ko pa mag-MRI.”

The National University product has already ruled out a return tomorrow and next week for the V Challenge match.

Kota Yamada and Curtis Stockton carried the fight for the short-handed Oita with 12 and 11 points, respectively.

The defeat was Weisse Adler’s 32nd loss in 35 outings this season.

Krizstian Padar led the Arrows with 21 points built on 19 attacks and two blocks.

Shoma Tomita chipped in 13 markers as Toray moved to .500 at 16-16.

The two teams will meet again tomorrow, 2 pm, at the same arena, to end their respective campaigns.
