The Crossfire team which had to grind its way to get a shot for the gold medal through the lower bracket ended up with the same fate after also losing to Vietnam, 3-0.

The crew of Dennis “ZDD” Ramos Jr, Aldrin “Aldrin” Borabon, John Kenneth “zYK” Alde, Matthew “EL1” Arnaez, and Christian “Revenge” Amorea earlier defeated Indonesia, 3-0, in the lower bracket to secure the silver but couldn’t exact its revenge against Vietnam which also defeated them in the upper bracket finals, 2-0.
