The Monarchs secured the top spot in Pool B with eight points off a perfect 3-0 standing.

With Sabong International knocking to within one, Team Dasma secured a block to put a 24-22 advantage in the third frame.

Charles Absin pulled Sabong International back to one, 23-24 with a quick. Then a net touch secured the win for the Monarchs.

Mark Calado added 11 markers, while team captain Jayvee Sumagaysay had nine points.

Team Dasma is planning to use its one-day break to work on the team’s conditioning ahead of the Champions League semifinals.

“We just have to work on ‘yung, ano… Obviously nakita niyo naman nag-cramps ‘yung ibang players namin. So we have to work on that sa kanilang conditioning,” bared Miguel.
