MANILA, Philippines—Choco Mucho settled for sixth place after losing to Kazakh powerhouse Zhetysu, 25-14, 25-11, 25-23, in its final game in the 2021 AVC Asian Women’s Club Volleyball Championship Thursday in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.

The Filipinos were already on the brink of a loss with Zhetysu taking a 22-15 lead in the third set but the Filipinos made a last ditch rally to extend the match with an 8-1 run.
