F2 Logistics captures breakthrough Grand Prix title

F2 Logistics captured its breakthrough 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix title but not after surviving a tough battle against Petron, 25-20, 25-19, 20-25, 25-18, in the decider of their best-of-three Finals series at MOA Arena on Saturday.    Conference Most Valuable Player Maria Jose Perez led the Cargo Movers' assault as the Venezuelan import unleashed all of her 24 points off attacks to pulverize the defense of the Blaze Spikers but it was skipper Cha Cruz who hurt Petron the most. Cruz, who was instumental in F2 Logistics impressive comeback in Game 2, scored 16 points from 13 spikes and three aces while spoiling the attacks of the Blaze Spikers with great floor defense, tallying 12 excellent receptions and eight digs. American Kennedy Bryan and reigning UAAP MVP MAjoy Baron finished with 12 points each.       The Cargo Movers pounced on the cold Blaze Spikers early before staving off Petron’s comeback attempt with a strong fourth set blitz to bag their first import-laden crown since joining the league last year. The Ramil de Jesus-mentored squad returned the favor against the same team that kicked then off the throne in the All-Filipino Conference four months ago and completed an amazing comeback from a 0-1 series deficit. "Masaya kasi 'yun na lang 'di ko na-achieve," said a very jubilant De Jesus, a many-time UAAP champion and 2016 PSL All-Filipino Conference titlist. De Jesus stuck to the same rotation that saved them in Game 2, putting Bryan at opposite and switching Cruz's position to open. Petron was slow to adjust. "'Yung rotation  na 'yun di nila na-solusyunan, very effective naman," he said. "Nu'ng thirrd set balik lang sa normal possession, nag-relax lang mga bata pero di ko binago 'yung rotation." The Blaze Spikers avoided a sweep after taking the third set but again saw themselves trailing 11-16 in the fourth frame. Petron never recovered from their deficit as Perez sealed the win with a kill straight to the backrow that went off the hands of American import Hillary Hurley.   F2 Logistics won its second league title after ruling the the 2016 All-Filipino Conference  and became the first team to climb out of an early series deficit and take the throne since the implementation of the best-of-three championship back in 2015. The Cargo Movers forced a decider after a morale-boosting 25-20, 24-26, 14-25, 25-19, 15-4, victory in Game 2 last Thursday. Petron drew first blood, 25-14, 25-21, 25-16, Tuesday but was denied of adding another Grand Prix crown after winning it all back in 2015. Hurley scored 25 points while compatriot Stalzer was limited to only nine markers for Petron.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

Postcard from the Pines: Revisiting Baguio after 35 years

BAGUIO -- It was past five in the morning when I found myself waiting at that ungodly hour for the first-class bus to Baguio. It had been 35 years since I last visited the city, zigzagging up Kennon Road on a Dagupan Bus that had its windows open as it swerved up the sliver of a street. On a recent vacation, I hopped on a Victory Liner, still bleary-eyed to catch the first bus up to the City of Pines and away from the already traffic-choked roads of Manila. First class on Victory meant a cubicle of a bathroom in the middle of the bus. A stewardess with matching cap and uniform, like they have on the airlines, welcomed us for the ride. An hour into the ride, the stewardess distr...Keep on reading: Postcard from the Pines: Revisiting Baguio after 35 years.....»»

Eze keeps Perpetual s playoff flame flickering

University of Perpetual Help stayed alive in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup while also eliminating AMA Online Education in the process with an 89-81 win on Monday at the JCSGO Gym in Quezon City. Nigerian big man Prince Eze captained the Altas with 22 points, 20 rebounds, and four blocks as they halted their three-game losing slide. Rey Anthony Peralta poured 12 of his 17 markers in the telling third quarter, as Perpetual jumped on AMA after the halftime break and built a lead as high as 25, 69-44. John Rey Villanueva also drilled 13 points powered by three triples while Edgar Charcos wound up with 13 markers, eight assists, and six rebounds. It almost looked like an easy win for the Altas after building a sizable lead in the third frame, but James Martinez put AMA on his back and got the Titans within five, 79-84, with 1:57 remaining. Luckily for Perpetual, Villanueva connected with an open three before Eze glided for the easy layup to stave off the uprising and clinch the victory. “Nag-relax eh tsaka nag-iisip ng puntos yung mga players. So we just have to be unselfish pagdating sa ganoon and just try to get the win instead,” said coach Frankie Lim. At 3-5, the Altas still have a remote chance to make a late run to the top six if they sweep their remaining games. For Lim, that’s exactly what he needs as he eyes to continue building his wards in preparation for the collegiate season. “We'll try to come up with a game plan for our next few games and hope we make it. It’s good for the team,” he said. Robbie Manalang paced AMA with 23 points, four rebounds, and four assists while Martinez unfurled 18 markers, 13 coming from the fourth quarter.

Baron, Dy save the day for La Salle vs FEU

Like a couple of caped heroines, Kianna Dy and Mary Joy heeded the De La Salle's pleas of desperation. The Lady Spikers scrapped it out against Far Eastern University in the first four sets of their second round matchup in the UAAP Season 80 women's volleyball tournament, and needed one more set to finish of the Lady Tamaraws. And that fifth set was when Dy and Baron switched from Lady Spikers to superheroes and led La Salle to a 25-17, 21-25, 16-25, 25-20, 15-5 victory. The Lady Spikers scored 10 of their own in the fifth, five came off FEU's errors, and seven of those were the handiwork of the partnership between Dy and Baron.
