Lady Realtors end slump, whip Tigresses in three sets

Games Thursday: (Filoil Flying V Centre) 4:15 p.m. – Cocolife vs Iriga City 7:00 p.m. – Generika-Ayala vs F2 Logistics   Sta. Lucia Realty finally long drought as the Lady Realtors schooled Victoria Sports-University of Santo Tomas, 25-19, 25-21, 25-19, Tuesday in the 2017 Chooks to-Go-Philippine Superliga (PSL) Grand Prix at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lady Realtors gifted head coach Jerry Yee his first win in the league after dropping their first three games. Ukranian reinforcement Dana Anisova led SLR’s assault with 13 points anchored on 11 attacks while Canadian Marisa Field and local star Pam Lastimosa chipped in 11 markers apiece for the Lady Realtors. Rialen Sante added nine points while Rebecca Rivera tallied 20 excellent sets for SLR.     Still, Yee was from satisfied with their win against the collegiate squad.  “Madami pa rin kaming errors and lapses then, hindi pa rin nagko-connect ang setter at middle hitters natin,” he said pointing at their 23 errors. “Buti nalang nandiyan ‘yung ibang imports natin na kayang-kaya ‘yung outside hits.” “Ang hirap noon kapag natalo pa kami. So, kahit papaano may konting pressure doon. We needed a win so we got a win,” he added. “Ito ang mga baby steps namin so we’ll take it.” Dimdim Pacres scored nine points while Carla Sandoval and Caitlyn Viray tallied eight markers each for the Golden Tigresses, who remained listless in three outings......»»

PSL Grand Prix to showcase record nine-team field

Philippine Superliga will cap off its fifth season with an explosive nine-team field Grand Prix, which will unfurl on Saturday at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The competition gets even hotter with teams allowed to field up to three foreign players each. Two new teams will also be introduced in this edition of the season-ending conference with Iriga City and collegiate team University of Sto. Tomas joining the fray. “With a record of nine teams, this is going to be the biggest PSL ever,” said PSL president Ramon “Tats” Suzara during the press launch graced by PSL chairman Philip Ella Juico and Bounty Agro Ventures president Ronald Mascarinas Wednesday at Vikings Luxury Buffet at MOA in Pasay City. “We have a very competitive field and all teams are capable of coming up with a very good fight,” he added. “This is going to be a very great season and we know that only the strongest will survive.” Defending two-time champion Foton remains to be one of the teams to beat with Serbian coach Moro Branislav bringing in compatriots and tested talents Sara Klisura and Katarina Vukamanovic as well as Montenegrin Dragana Perunicnic. Giving the Tornadoes a run for their money are perennial powerhouse squads Petron, Cignal and F2 Logistics. Powering the Blaze Spikers this time is seasoned reinforcement Lindsay Stalzer, who led Foton to its two titles, with another American Hillary Hurley and Japanese libero Yuri Fukuda. The HD Spikers addressed their needs at the defensive end with the recruitment of Beth Carey of Australia, Alexis Matthews of United States and Mami Miyashita of Japan while the Cargo Movers will rest injured spiker Ara Galang, but her absence will be hardly felt with the acquisition of Kennedy Bryan of USA and former Olympian Maria Jose Perez of Venezuela. Also seeing action are regulars Generika-Ayala, Sta. Lucia Realty and Cocolife. The Lifesavers will parade Katarina Pilepic of Croatia, Penina Snuka of Hawaii and Darlene Ramdin of Trinidad and Tobago, who is just fresh from leading her country to the FIVB World Championship in Japan next year. Sta. Lucia, meanwhile, will have Canadian national team members Marisa Field and Kristen Moncks and Ukrainian Bodhana Anisova at the forefront while Cocolife will bank on Tai Manu-Olevao and Taylor Milton of the United States. Iriga City would also be a force to be reckoned with despite being the league’s newest member. The Lady Oragons will parade Tamara Kmezic of Serbia, who is the tallest import ever to play in the PSL at 6-foot-6. Kmezic will be assisted by Japanese libero Minami Yoshioka as well as local star Grethcel Soltones. The Tigresses, meanwhile, is the only team without an import as they would be competing as a guest team in preparation for the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) women’s volleyball tournament next year.   .....»»

Ping wants Ginebra in the playoffs but he'll have to wait until Finals

There's no going around it, Marc Pingris wants defending champion Brgy. Ginebra in the Governors' Cup playoffs. However, Ping will have to wait a while as the final playoff picture has the Hotshots at no. 4 and the Gin Kings at no. 3. This development was made possible after Meralco's stunning win over San Miguel Sunday. If the Beermen managed to hold on, a Manila Clasico quarterfinals would have been in order. 'Mas gusto ko Ginebra. Kahit twice-to-win kami basta Ginebra,' Pingris said Sunday after their win over NLEX and the final playoff pairings still undecided. 'Maraming tao eh, masarap maglaro kasi napakalakas ng team na yun. Kung di mo kayang talunin, paano ka magcha-champion? Mas maganda na mas malakas ang makalaban kaagad,' he added. However, Ping might actually want to step back and reconsider since Ginebra owns the Manila Clasico matchup so far this season. In 10 Clasico games, the Gin Kings have won seven of them and all Star wins came during the semifinals of the Philippine Cup, a series that Ginebra won in seven games. Despite that however, Ping wants Ginebra. It's just that competitive nature to seek out and try to beat your greatest rival. 'Every time na Ginebra ang kalaban namin, para kamin nasa Finals. History kasi nandiyan ang Manila Clasico, maraming fans na nanonood,' he said. 'Pakiramdam ko talaga nasa Finals kami. Sabi ko nga, mas maganda na malakas na ang kalaban mo,' Pingris added. Well, with the current picture, the next Clasico game this season will definitely be in the Finals as both Ginebra and Star can only meet in the championship round. That is if they both make it there. Star starts its playoff run against the Road Warriors in a quick rematch while the Gin Kings take on the Grand Slam-seeking Beermen. Can Pingris' wish be realized? We'll find out soon enough.   --- Follow this writer on TWitter, @paullintag8 .....»»
