Air Force star Bryan Bagunas was left disappointed after pointing out what cost them the chance of closing out their semifinals series against PLDT last Sunday.

A win away from another finals berth, the Go For Gold-backed squad squandered their advantage and fell to the Power Hitters in five-sets, 24-26, 25-20, 21-25, 25-20, 13-15, which extended the series to a win-or-go-home match on Tuesday.

“Para sa akin, yung errors talaga namin e. Kasi talagang lagpas isang set  yung binagay namin eh,” rued Bagunas.

The Jet Spikers amassed a total of 35 errors in the game, which technically handed PLDT an entire set.

The 6-foot-5 hitter, who is set to play for Oita Miyoshi Weisse Adler later in the year, tried to salvage the game as he unleashed six points in a 7-2 rally to give his squad the lead, 11-10, in the final set.

However, a couple of errors spelled out the doom for the Jet Spikers.

“Umabot ata ng thirty-five yung errors namin e, kaya siguro nagkaganun yung laro,” the UAAP Season 81 MVP added.

Bagunas’ 25-point performance went for naught as the Power Hitters also halted Air Force’s nine-game winning streak in the tournament.

For them to have a fighting chance against a motivated PLDT squad, the 21-year-old Batangas-native bared that the team will have to work on their receives as it will help them to dictate the game’s tempo.

“Siguro, yung service receive namin, ‘yun lang naman talaga yung kulang e.

“Talagang doon nagsisimula yung tempo ng laro so kapag nakuha namin yung service and receive namin talagang okay yung situation namin sa loob ng court,” said Bagunas.
