FC Tokyo delivered another win as they claimed dominance over Miyoshi by giving no chance to win in their series games.

In the fourth set win of FC Tokyo, Marck Espejo scored nine points off seven attacks, one block, and an ace.

However, the Filipino star spiker got subbed out in the third frame with 13-lead in favor of FC Tokyo by Kuroda Yato, who played until the end of the game.

FC Tokyo won despite the absence of Espejo in the last frame, thanks to 22 points from Norwegian immigrant Jonas Kvalen and Yuga Nagamoto.

With the win, the eighth-ranked Tokyo improved to an 8-16 record as Nagamoto recorded 21 of his 38 attack attempts and nailed an ace, while Kvalen scored 19 spikes and three blocks.

Meanwhile, Bryan Bagunas had a pretty decent game for Weisse Adler, scoring double digits with 21 points off 19 attacks, 1 block, and 1 ace, but it wasn’t enough as Oita Miyoshi fell for the third time in a row, falling to 5-19.

Oita Miyoshi, which has lost all four elimination round matches against Tokyo, will take a two-week break before facing No.3 Toray (16-8) on February 19 and 20.

On the same dates, Espejo and Tokyo will assert their supremacy over Nagoya, which is now in fifth position (13-7).
