Mac Begornia bested Yonas Belo of Indonesia in 4 sets 14-12 / 9-11 / 11-9 / 11-5 to take the plate series of the 2014 Kijono Cup Men's Open. Focused and determined from the start, Mac started strong racing to 7-1 score. However, 4 straight errors allowed Yonas to come back and level the score 10-10 forcing a tie breaker. Recomposing himself, Mac's form again came back to win the first set. In the second set, Mac had momentary lapses that caused him the set allowing Yonas to level the score at one set apiece. In the third set, a see-saw battle ensued but in the later stages Begornia saw his second wind and powered his way to an 11-9 win. In the 4th set, Yonas couldn't not find an answer to Begornia's continued power shots and in the end had to bow to the Filipino. Mac wins 3 sets to 1.
