Bryan Bagunas, Oita Miyoshi see win streak snapped in V.League

Oita Miyoshi saw its two-game winning streak abruptly cut, Saturday.

Weisse Adler suffered a 25-21, 18-25, 17-25, 21-25 loss against JT Thunders in the 2020-21 Japan V.League Division 1 men’s tournament at the Hiroshima Green Arena.

The Filipino import had a relatively silent performance, contributing 14 points on 12 attacks, a block, and an ace.

The surprise leader for Weisse Adler was 23-year-old Kota Yamada with 21 markers, scattered through 17 spikes, three aces and a block. He was also ultra-efficient in his attacks, going 17-of-23, good for 73.9 percent.

Australian Curtis Stockton also had 15 points to his name, but went 12-of-37 in the attacking department.

Oita Miyoshi slipped to 2-21, still at 10th place but just 1.5 games below VC Nagano at ninth.

Six-foot-11 opposite spiker Thomas Edgar led Hiroshima with 19 points, including three aces as they rose to 11-12.

Taishi Onodera and Yudai Arai manned the net with three blocks apiece, as they finished with 16 and 14 markers, respectively.

Weisse Adler will have another shot against Hiroshima tomorrow, 10:45 am, at the same venue.
