    THE Philippine national team recovered from a slow start to beat Fine Chef Phitsanulok, 17-25, 25-12, 25-22, 25-20, to keep its semifinals hope alive in the 2019 Thailand Open Sealect Tuna Volleyball Championships on Saturday at the Sisaket Gym.

    Bryan Bagunas scored 22 points off 18 attacks, two blocks and two aces as the Philippines bounced back from a four-set loss to Thai Air Force to finish the preliminary round with a 1-1 record.

    Marck Espejo made 12 spikes and three blocks for 15 points, while Kim Malabunga scored 11, delivering six of the 11 blocks made by the Rebisco-backed Philippine team, which would advance to the knockout semifinals if Thai Air Force beats Fine Chef on Sunday.

    Kittithad Nuwaddee scored 26 points, all coming from attacks, for Fine Chef, which committed 27 errors.
