Marck Espejo and FC Tokyo failed to stretch their winning streak in the Japan V. League after falling prey to the JT Thunders Hiroshima in four sets on Friday, November 12, at the Sumida Ward General Gymnasium.
Coming off back-to-back victories over Bryan Bagunas and Oita Miyoshi, Tokyo absorbed a 25-27, 15-25, 28-26, 20-25 loss to Hiroshima in the first of their back-to-back matches.
Espejo delivered 13 points off 11 attacks as he wound up tied as the second-leading scorer for Tokyo, which dropped to 2-7 for eighth place.
Norwegian import Jonas Kvalen delivered 19 points behind 16 attacks and 2 blocks, but Tokyo had trouble containing the Thunders’ Australian reinforcement Thomas Edgar.
Edgar dominated in the win with 31 points – all coming from attacks.
Hiroshima improved to 3-6 for seventh place.
The two teams will lock horns again on Saturday, November 13, with Tokyo seeking a bounce-back win to create separation from the bottom two teams, who are in danger of losing their Division 1 spots. – Rappler.com
