Sanka Dilshan Jayarathna and Vidura Perera carried the fight for the winless CEB with 18 and 17 points, respectively.

Needing just two points to clinch ninth place, Rebisco got help from the Sri Lankan club as they committed an error before Umandal ended the match with a down-the-line kill, 15-11.

Three straight kills from the Filipinos pumped some life in their fourth period, 21-24, but a crosscourt hit from CEB sent the game to a decider, 25-21.

Rebisco did not waste any time bouncing back in the third canto, zooming to a 7-2 advantage before running away completely, 25-18, to move a set away from the win.

Trailing 20-21 in the second salvo, the Sri Lankans netted four straight points to reach set point, but a quick kill from Kim Malabunga halted that run, before Mahanthi’s off-the-block kill to equalize, 25-22.
