 Tunis, Tunisia, March 23, 2017- Bafia of Cameroon fought for more than 2 hours to overcome Congo's Espoir in epic five setter 3-2 (22-25, 25-19, 25-22, 26-28, 18-16) in the quarterfinal 9 to 16 places match at 2017 Men's African Club Championship at Ben Arous Hall in Tunis, Tunisia on Thursday.

 Again the tiebreaker was a thrilling face off until Bafia settled the match 18-16 to play for 9 to 12 positions, leaving Espoir to compete for the 13 to 16 places.
