Philippine team dominates Super Cup opening day rival

The national women’s volleyball team flexed its muscles, pulling off a 25-14, 25-18, 25-16 win over PSL Shine in the Philippine Superliga (PSL) Super Cup Tuesday night at the Filoil Flying V Centre Arena in San Juan City Alyssa Valdez and Jia Morado didn’t see action, but it hardly mattered as the Nationals uncorked a well-balanced assault to register a win in the pocket tournament that serves as a warm-up for the 30th Southeast Asian Games that the country will host from 30 November to 11 December. Mylene Paat finished with eight points to lead the way while Ces Molina and Majoy Baron tallied seven markers apiece for the Nationals, who got some help from middle blocker Maddie Madayag. "Syempre kung ano man yung nabigay namin kanina, gusto pa namin madagdagan yun, ma-improve pa namin nang ma-improve kasi syempre may gusto pa rin kaming gawin para sa team namin,” said national team coach Shaq Delos Santos. Delos Santos was pleased to see that his wards stepped up despite the absence of Valdez and Morado, who missed the first match of this three-game pocket tourney as they need to prepare for their finals game for Creamline against PetroGazz in the Premier Volleyball League. Jovelyn Gonzaga and Eya Laure had six points apiece while Madayag contributed three attacks, one block and one service ace and Rhea Dimaculangan had 13 excellent sets and three aces in the match that took an hour and 13 minutes to finish. “Kasi yun din naman yung isa sa mga pinag-uusapan namin na kailangan naming ma-cover up din yung mga pagkukulang,” said Delos Santos. “So yun din ang goal namin, syempre lahat naman nagkakaroon ng mga conflict or mga challenges,” he added. “Ginagawan lang namin ng solusyon para hindi siya maging mabigat and at the same time mas nakakapag-isip kami ng ito pala ang magandang way para maging OK ang lahat.” MJ Philips scored seven attacks and one block for Team Shine......»»

PVL: Angels keep pace for back-to-back Finals bid

PetroGazz is on the right track for a second straight Finals appearance in a possible rematch with a familiar foe. The Angels barely broke a sweat as they annihilated BanKo, 25-22, 25-15, 25-20, Saturday to draw first blood in the best-of-three Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference semifinals at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Jonah Sabete and Jovielyn Prado did most of the damage on offense for PetroGazz, which could be looking at back-to-back championship showdown with defending champion and unbeaten Creamline, which the Angels brought down in the Reinforced Conference Finals a few months back. Creamline won against Motolite in four sets in the other semis paring. Game 2 of the Final Four is on Sunday. Sabete had 12 points while Prado posted 10 markers as the two accounted for 18 of the Angels’ 41 attack points. Cherry Nunag and Jeanette Panaga added eight markers each for PetroGazz. “Naunahan lang namin yung BanKo. Yung momentum eh on our side. Maganda yung laro pero hindi naman sa mataas yung expectations ko with my players but alam ko kasi nakita ko na yung kaya namin ipakita but kanina medyo nagkonting chill lang kasi na-demoralize na yung kalaban,” said PetoGazz coach Arnold Laniog. “But again, hindi dito natatapos. Tomorrow, kung ano yung pinakita natin ngayon mas higitan pa natin,” he added. The Perlas Spikers never got a chance to recover as the Angels jumped in them early. It didn’t help that BanKo gave away almost a set with 23 errors. Dzi Gervacio and Kathy Bersola had 14 and 10 points for the Perlas Spikers while Nicole Tiamzon had a quiet nine-point outing.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

PVL: Cool Smashers aim for rare elims sweep

Only Motolite stands in the way of defending champion Creamline in completing a rare elimination round sweep of the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan Wednesday. Even without its star players Alyssa Valdez and setter Jia Morado, who are both in Japan for training camp with the national team, the Cool Smashers were able to sustain their hot win streak as they swept BanKo last Sunday for a 15-0 win-loss record. Already assured of the no. 1 seed in the best-of-three Final Four, Creamline is just looking to build momentum for the next round where they will face the no. 4 ranked team. Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream. Jema Galanza, Michele Gumabao, Risa Sato, Pau Soriano and playmaker Kyle Negrito are holding the fort in the absence of Valdez and Morado. They are again expected to be at the forefront of the Cool Smashers’ drive to stay unbeaten. But Motolite won’t be an easy target as the squad is looking to land with a better seeding in the semis. Motolite sports a 10-5 win-loss record at the third spot ahead of BanKO (10-6) and a straight sets or four-set win will give the team a chance to avoid crossing paths with Creamline in the semis. A loss will put Motolite into a Final Four collision course with the Cool Smashers, who by then will already have Valdez and Morado back in the fold. ---    Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Angels shoot for Final Four seat anew

Twice denied of a spot in the Final Four, PetroGazz tries again on Wednesday but the Angels will have to hurdle an Air Force squad also in dire need of a win to fuel its own semis drive, guaranteeing a fierce duel in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan. Game time is at 6:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream. The Angels looked headed to a trouble-free ride to the semis by racking up eight straight victories for a 9-2 card last week but the 10th win that would’ve assured their stint in the next round proved elusive as the Reinforced Conference champions dropped their last two games to the Motolite and unbeaten defending champion Creamline. PetroGazz’s losses enabled PacificTown-Army and Air Force, who are tied at 6-7 slates, to stay in the hunt for a playoff for the last Final Four seat. Army and Air Force need to sweep their last three games and hope that PetroGazz (9-4) and Motolite (9-5) won’t go over nine wins to force a playoff for the last semifinal seat. Jovielyn Prado and Paneng Mercado, who combined for 26 hits in PetroGazz’s losing 1-3 stand to Creamline in Iloilo last Sunday, are again expected to lead the Angels drive along with Cherry Nunag, Jeanette Panaga and Cai Baloaloa with top hitter Jonah Sabeh also out to atone her mediocre four-hit showing the last time out. But the Jet Spikers are also coming into the match upbeat following a four-set win over the Choco Mucho Flying Titans over the weekend that kept the former in the playoff race......»»

PVL: Angels go for semis playoff, ninth straight win

PetroGazz has its eyes on clinching at least a playoff for a semifinals berth on Wednesday in a rematch with sputtering Motolite in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Holding the second-longest winning streak at eight games behind Final Four-bound and unbeaten repeat-seeking Creamline (12-0), the Angels will try to duplicate its first round win over Motolite when the two teams meet inside the court at 4:00 p.m. The match will air live on SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream. PetroGazz sports a 9-2 win-loss record behind the Cool Smashers and head of five other teams still in the hunt for a semis berth. Facing a team with a young core, the Reinforced Conference champions hope to bring back the same intensity and aggressiveness they displayed in their previous conquests and avoid the same pace that almost cost them the game on Saturday in Iloilo, where the Angels needed five sets to frustrate PacificTown Army. But Motolite will come into the game raring to get back on the winning track after back-to-back losses that hampered its semis drive and at the same time gave the other teams within striking distance of the top four. Motolite holds a 7-5 mark at fourth spot just ahead of Army (6-6), Air Force (5-7) and ChocoMucho (6-7).     ---       Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Perlas Spikers out to draw closer to a semis spot

BanKo looks to capitalize on its firepower and experience when it meets winless Chef’s Classics on Sunday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan City.

BanKo snapped a two-game slide with straight sets conquest of Motolite for a 7-5 win-loss record tied with its victim at joint third and fourth spots behind semifinals bound defending champion Creamline (12-0) and PetroGazz (9-2). Chef’s Classics is still in search of elusive win after dropping all of its first 14 games.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»
