Foton bounces back, sweeps SLR

Games Tuesday: (Filoil Flying V Centre) 4:15 pm – Generika-Ayala vs Victoria Sports-UST 7:00 pm – Cignal vs F2 Logistics   LIPA CITY --- After suffering a sorry setback, defending champion Foton vented its ire on Sta. Lucia Realty as it pulled off a masterful 25-16, 25-11, 25-16 bounce back victory in the 2017 Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga (PSL) Grand Prix Saturday at the La Salle Lipa Sentrum here. Jaja Santiago had a brilliant performance while imports Sara Klisura and Dragana Perunicnic carried the cudgels for the Tornadoes. With the win, Foton is now bunched with rival Petron at the second spot with a 5-1 win-loss card behind unbeaten F2 Logistics, which sports a 4-0 slate. Based on the official league format, the top team after the single-round elimination will take on the eighth seeded squad while the second seed will meet the seventh seed; the third seed will clash with the sixth seed; and the fourth seed will battle the fifth seed in the sudden-death quarterfinal encounter. The survivors in the quarters will advance to the semis to determine the protagonists in the best-of-three finals series, which starts on Dec. 12. Foton head coach Moro Branislav knows that every match is important and clinching the top seed will definitely make their road to a three-peat much easier. “This is a very tough tournament and every game is very important,” said the seasoned Serbian mentor. “For my opinion, we can’t take anybody lightly. We always have to be at our best, work hard and go for the win. Today, the girls showed that they really want another title.” Santiago, the reigning Most Valuable Player, delivered 11 kills, two aces and a block to finish with 14 points while Klisura and Perunicnic delivered 17 and 14 markers, respectively, for the Tornadoes, who crushed the Lady Realtors at the attack zone, 42-24. Ukrainian Bodhana Anisova was the lone bright spot on offense for Sta. Lucia with 15 attacks. The Lady Realtors suffered their fourth setback in five matches......»»

Petron stays unscathed, extends win streak to six

Petron tightened its grip of the top spot in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Tuesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Blaze Spikers made short work of struggling Sta. Lucia, 25-9, 25-12, 25-6,  to remain on top of the heap. Mika Reyes finished with a game-high 11 points, including five aces while Ging Balse-Pabayo added 10 markers for the Blaze Spikers, who captured their sixth win in as many games. Petron had a dominant performance as it registered twice as much Sta. Lucia’s attacks (37-15) and blocks (5-0) while capitalizing on the Lady Realtors’ poor reception with 12 aces. Meanwhile, veteran Mina Aganon re-asserted her dominance as she towed the Tornadoes back to the winning track after dominating Cocolife, 25-23, 26-28, 25-21, 25-19. The Tornadoes moved to solo second spot with a 5-1 win-loss card. Foton coach Aaron Valdez said their previous loss to F2 Logistics fueled them to work harder and regain their bearings. “I think our loss to F2 Logistics made us better as a team,” said Velez, who took the helm from Rommel Abella in the off-season. “Despite the loss, the team still radiated positive energy and I did not look at it (loss) as a setback.” He added that it was a wakeup call that gave them a chance to identify their weaknesses, especially now that towering Jaja Santiago and Dindin Manabat are seeing action in the prestigious V. Premier League in Japan. “It served as a wake up call for the team for us to improve on our weaknesses,” he added. “I’m happy that my players responded although they were hesitant at first, it’s normal, but I’m really glad that they exerted effort rather than nothing.” Carla Sandoval also had 18 points while playmaker Gyzelle Sy registered 24 excellent sets for Foton in a match that lasted for two hours and 15 minutes. Filipino-American spiker Kalei Mau led the way with 21 points, 16 digs and six excellent receptions for the Asset Managers, who absorbed their fifth loss in six matches. In the night cap, Cignal walloped its sister-team Smart, 25-20, 25-20, 25-20, for a 4-3 slate. Rachel Anne Daquis and Mylene Paat registered 15 points each and combined for 24 of the HD Spikers' 41 attack points. The Giga Hitters dropped to 2-4 mark......»»

We're just waiting for the championship kung sino man but still yung job namin is not yet done. We hope na we get the championship, that's the most important thing this season," said NU head coach Pat Aquino as his squad enjoyed their advantage. As they wait for their opponent in the finals, Aquino said that their team will be having a series of practice games and a team building. "We'll have a team building this next weekend and we'll continue working hard. Then we'll have practice games again with the boys like we did last few years back yung mga past season, yun ginagawa namin. There will be a Taiwan team na baka mag practice game kami, series of practice games," Aquino added. Valerie Mamaril and Fatima Quiapo produced nine points each to lead the way for the Lady Tamaraws. With a 9-5 record after the elimination round, FEU is tied with Adamson University and is set to have a playoff for the second seed and twice-to-beat advantage in the step-ladder semifinals. Adamson secured a spot in the step-ladder semifinals berth and a playoff for the twice-to-beat bonus in the process following an 80-65 romp of Ateneo. The University of Santo Tomas lost a 10-point third quarter lead but regrouped late in the game to nip De La Salle, 68-65, to extend its season and tie its victims at 8-6. With their ninth win in 14 contests, the Lady Falcons will play the Lady Tamaraws in a playoff for the No. 2 ranking in the semis on Wednesday.

Petron downs F2 Logistics to keep unbeaten streak

BIÑAN CITY --- Reigning champion Petron brushed off a sluggish start to beat archrival F2 Logistics, 22-25, 25-16, 25-16, 25-20, and remain unscathed after four outings in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Saturday at the Alonte Sports Center here. Aiza Maizo-Pontillas led the Blaze Spikers’ charge with 19 points highlighted by 17 kills while Bernadeth Pons displayed her all-around game with 16 markers, 21 digs and five excellent receptions. Sisi Rondina added 11 markers including an incredible four-kill block performance for Petron. “Alam namin na importante 'yung game ngayon para makita namin kung nasaan na kami as a team. Naging maganda na 'yung execution namin noong huling tatlong set kaya happy kami,” said Blaze Spikers coach Shaq Delos Santos.   The Cargo Movers slid to 3-1 card despite the 12-point effort of Cha Cruz and libero Dawn Macandili’s incredible 31 digs and 10 excellent receptions. Meanwhile, Cignal hung on tight to survive gritty Generika-Ayala in thrilling five sets, 26-24, 17-25, 25-22, 20-25, 17-15, to regain its winning ways. Despite squandering a 2-1 set lead and trailing in the fifth set, the HD Spikers never wavered, especially skipper Rachel Anne Daquis, who erased the two match point advantages of the Lifesavers to tie the decider, 15-all. Then, Bang Pineda committed an attack error before AC Masangkay delivered the final blow that helped Cignal escape the cardiac game. The HD Spikers were emotional after improving their record to a 2-2 win-loss record as they bounced back from a frustrating setback to Foton last Wednesday, where head coach Edgar Barroga was slapped with a red card and sent to the penalty box. In the Collegiate Grand Slam, University of the Philippines (UP) and Far Eastern University (FEU) avoided an upset ax to pluck their second victory. The Lady Maroons suffered a second-set meltdown, but recovered just in time to pull off a 25-6, 21-25, 25-16, 25-22 victory over Colegio San Agustin (CSA)-Binan while the Lady Tamaraws brushed off a first-set scare to tally a 25-21, 25-16, 25-11 win over De La Salle University-Dasmarinas. Rookie Nicole Magsarile shone with 15 points built on 12 attacks and three aces while fourth year Justin Dorog dropped 14 hits for UP, which claimed its second win. Aie Gannaban and Marist Layug also chipped in 11 and 10 hits, respectively, while skipper Tits Carlos had nine points laced with 10 digs to underscore the Lady Maroons fluid, well-balanced offensive execution. After being limited to only six points in the first set, the Eagles drew strength from their home crowd as they erected a 20-13 lead in the second set. The Lady Maroons managed to slice it to within two, 20-22, but Dorog committed an attack error that gave the Eagles the set point, 24-20. Dorog tried to atone for that blunder with a successful hit before Lency Duarte scored a block to give the Eagles their first set win in the tournament. The Lady Maroons got their acts together in the third set and convincingly took the 2-1 set lead, but the Eagles continued to put up a gallant fight in the fourth set as they turned 17-21 cushion to a one-point lead. Fortunately for UP, Layug and Magsarile delivered the crucial blows to reach match point, 24-21, until Gannaban hit the game-winning quick attack......»»

Petron downs Smart to keep share of lead

Defending champion Petron struggled in form early but recovered its bearing just in time to turn back Smart, 25-23, 25-14, 25-18, Thursday in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Blaze Spikers needed to comeback from six points down in the opening set before settling down and cashing in on their vaunted net defense and deep arsenal to claim their third win in as may outings for a share of the lead with F2 Logistics and Foton. Ces Molina displayed her scoring prowess with 11 kills, three aces and two kill blocks to finish with game-high 16 points for the Blaze Spikers, who will take on F2 Logistics on Saturday. Aiza Maizo-Pontillas played an all-around game with 12 points laced with 11 digs and four excellent receptions while Mika Reyes feasted on quick attacks to score 10 of her 11 markers on kills for Petron.   The Blaze Spikers started out slow, letting the Giga Hitters control most of the opening set. Petron behind energizer Sisi Rondina, who scored nine points, slowly chopped down their 21-16 deficit before crushing the confidence of Smart with a closing rally to steal the frame. With the Blaze Spikers heating up, the second set easily went to Petron as they built a 12-point advantage, 23-11, before sealing the set.   Smart played with urgency in the third and kept the game close until midway in the frame before Petron saw an opening to complete the sweep. Aiko Urdas led the Giga Hitters with 15 points while Jerrili Malabanan and Grethcel Soltones added 12 and 10 markers, respectively, for Smart, which dropped to 1-1 slate. Meanwhile, Foton crushed Sta. Lucia, 25-14, 25-21, 19-25, 25-13, to remain unscathed. Mina Aganon and Arriane Layug powered the Tornadoes with 19 and 17 points, respectively, while CJ Rosario had 10. Jho Maragunot was the only Lady Realtor in double figures with 11 points as SLR suffered its third loss in as many games. .....»»

Foton, Petron, F2 Logistics share top spot

F2 Logistics and Foton sustained their blazing starts as they clobbered their respective foes in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Cargo Movers crushed Sta. Lucia, 25-19, 25-20, 25-18, while the Tornadoes devastated Cignal, 25-15, 18-25, 25-22, 25-20, to clinch their second straight victory in as many outings. They were joined at the top spot by Petron after the Blaze Spikers defeated Generika-Ayala, 25-18, 25-22, 25-13. Aiza Maizo-Pontillas finished with 11 points while Remy Palma added nine for Petron, which sent the Lifesavers to their second loss in as many games. Meanwhile, Majoy Baron led the charge with 14 points and added seven digs, while former Most Valuable Player awardee Ara Galang and Kianna Dy chipped in 12 markers apiece for the Cargo Movers, who came up with a fitting follow-up to their impressive win over the HD Spikers in the opener. But F2 Logistics head coach Ramil de Jesus remains far from satisfied.  “We often start slow, especially whenever we play against opponents who just came from a tough loss,” said de Jesus, noting that they are still searching for their killer instinct. “We should get away with it because it gives momentum to other team. We have to be at our best from start to finish regardless of whom we are facing.” CJ Rosario delivered 13 kills, two blocks and two aces to finish with 17 points while Mina Aganon tallied 14 hits for Foton, which hardly missed the presence of towering frontliners Jaja Santiago and Dindin Manabat. Santiago and Manabat opted to sit out the season-ending conference to see action in the prestigious V.Premier League of Japan. Foton head coach Aaron Velez stressed that they remain a work in progress. "I think we were able to get back to our system,” said Velez, who took the helm from John Abella in the off-season. “We're still trying to figure out how to be consistent. But, I also think were able to tap our energy and momentum down the stretch.” Velez said they made some changes in their position to thwart the vaunted defense of the HD Spikers. "We were always training in the match,” said Velez, who also drew solid performance from new recruits Arianne Layug and Shaya Adorador that gave Ateneo de Manila ace blocker Bea de Leon the luxury of seeing limited minutes. “We wanted to win this one very badly so I thought of a plan in which we can take advantage of our positions and turn the game around. Fortunately, it worked.”  Rachel Anne Daquis, the newly-crowned league ambassador, sizzled with game-high 21 points laced with 13 digs while national team stalwart Mylene Paat added 17 hits for the HD Spikers, who suffered their second setback in three games. .....»»

Cold-shooting Philippines turns to defense in win over Qatar

After another rough shooting night, the Philippines found that its best offensive weapon was its defense. The Filipinos' offensive struggles continued on Monday, four nights after firing blanks in a loss to Iran. Only this time, they pulled out the stops to complete a big turnaround and beat Qatar despite making only three out of their 32 tries beyond-the-arc.
