Toray raised its win-loss standings to 22-10 atop every squad in the 10-team league.

Jonas Kvalen led the fight for FC Tokyo with 25 points founded on 22 attacks, two blocks, and a service ace.

Hayata Yanagimachi chalked up 18 points while Ayato Kuroda collected 13 points of his own.

FC Tokyo absorbed its third-straight defeat and sank to 8-19 at eighth place.

Espejo and FC Tokyo will try to bounce back on Saturday when they meet cellar-dweller VC Nagano, 1 pm, at the Swan Dome in Okaya.
