MANILA, Philippines — Rebisco-Philippines suffered a heartbreaking loss to Diamond Food, 34-36, 26-24, 28-26, 19-25, 12-15, in the 2021 Asian Men’s Club Volleyball Championship Monday at Terminal Hall in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.

With the loss, the Filipinos wrapped up pool play with a 0-4 record and will play in the classification phase for ninth to 10th places on Wednesday.


Rebisco, missing two of its best players in Marck Espejo and Bryan Bagunas who are currently playing overseas, pushed the Thailand side to the limit.

Mark Alfafara and Jao Umandal led the Nationals’ gallant stand, which was highlighted by furious fightback in the third set.


Down, 17-22, Rebisco gained the upper hand after a blistering 6-0 run punctuated by an Alfafara block.

Diamond Food, however, gave Rebisco a taste of its own medicine with its own rally from 2-1 set deficit and a 9-6 hole in the decider.
