Perez makes sure Jawbreakers stop three-game slide

Zark’s Burger-Lyceum of the Philippines University finally put an end to its three-game slump, holding off Go for Gold 108-94 in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup on Monday at the JCSGO Gym in Quezon City. CJ Perez poured 23 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and two steals to spearhead the Jawbreakers while Cameroonian Mike Nzeusseu tallied a double-double in the tune of his 21 markers, 11 boards, and three dimes. MJ Ayaay contributed 16 points, six rebounds, and six assists while Jaycee Marcelino added 15 markers, six of which coming in the fourth quarter where Zark’s-LPU put down Go for Gold for good. The Jawbreakers lost hold of a 27-point lead, 81-54, with 3:04 remaining in the third quarter before Matt Salem waxed hot for the Scratchers, helping his side cut the lead down to eight, 83-91, at the 5:35 mark of the fourth. But that was when twins Jaycee and Jayvee Marcelino went to work, scoring six straight points to give Zark’s-LPU a 14-point lead, 97-83, before Ayaay put on the finishing touches late. “Nawala yung joy sa laro namin,” said coach Topex Robinson as the Jawbreakers remain alive for playoff contention at 5-4. “Joy means that you'll make mistakes and learn from those mistakes. I just let them play today.” “Again, we're happy that we got back in our winning ways. We just have to play our game, nothing is gonna change. What’s important is we learn from our mistakes and try to get better all the time.” Salem uncorked 24 points powered by six triples while also grabbing six rebounds and Yankie Haruna just missed out on a double-double with his 22 markers and nine rebounds. Go for Gold bowed for the third straight time and dropped to a 4-6 card. BOX SCORES ZARK’S BURGER-LPU 108 — Perez 23, Nzeusseu 21, Ayaay 16, Jc. Marcelino 15, Pretta 9, Jv.

UAAP VOLLEYBALL: Adamson gets payback win over UE

Adamson University flirted with disaster before eking out a hard-earned 19-25, 25-11, 16-25, 25-16, 15-12, win over first round tormentors University of the East to end a two-game slump Sunday in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. One hitter less after rookie Chiara Permentilla skipped the rematch due to a left ankle sprain she suffered during their training, the Lady Falcons banked on veterans Jema Galanza and Mylene Paat in the crucial stretch of the fifth frame to improve to 4-5 win-loss record. Galanza scored 22 points off 18 attacks,three aces and a kill block while Paat scored all but one of her 18 markers on attacks including the match-clinching kill to close the two-hour, nine-minute match. Eli Soyud had 11 points while Joy Dacoron got 10 markers for the Lady Falcons.         Adamson snapped the Lady Warriors’ two-game winning run and avenged its five-set loss to UE at the close of the first round. “Well, we've battled a lot of adversity,” said Adamson coach Air Padda. “Chiara sprained her angle pretty bad this week, that's why she wasn't in the line-up. Eli's home is not in the open, she would rather play as an opposite.” “But we just told them, I don't know. When things are falling apart, maybe it's for us, so that we can fall into place. And we knew today coming into this game that UE has the confidence. I'm pretty sure that they expected to beat us. Um, I just told them, it's not gonna be easy,” she added. The Lady Falcons broke a 4-4 deadlock early in the fifth with a sizzling rally for a 9-5 gap. Adamson went ahead, 12-8, before the Lady Warriors fought back breathe down the Lady Falcons' necks, 12-11, capped by Mary Anne Mendrez's back-to-back hits. Adamson got a lucky break on the next play when Mendrez mistimed an attack attempt. On that play, the Lady Falcons thought they already scored a point when Le-Ann Perez smashed an attack but the officials allowed the play to continue after UE made a pancake save. They were already celebrating before Mendrez's attack error off an overset by Lai Bendong. Galanza pushed Adamson at match point, UE saved a point on a Lady Falcons' net touch error before Paat sealed the win with a kill.          Mendrez posted 17 points off 15 kills, Shaya Adorador got 12 while Judith Abil had 10 for UE, which dropped to 2-7 slate.   ---       Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Petron survives Klisura s 38-point explosion, keeps unbeaten slate

Games Saturday: (Muntinlupa Sports Center) 1:45 p.m. -- Foton vs F2 Logistics 4:10 p.m. -- Cignal vs Smart   Petron continued with its winning ways to keep its pristine record intact while defending champion F2 Logistics kept its hold of the second spot in the Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga (PSL) Grand Prix at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Blaze Spikers collected its seventh straight win in as many outings after snapping Cocolife’s four-game winning streak with a 26-24, 25-18, 21-25, 25-20, decision. Ces Molina stepped up in the absence of injured American import Hilary Hurley (right foot sprain) as the former San Beda University star dropped 21 points while American reinforcement Lindsay Stalzer had 22 markers for Petron, which survived the 38-point explosion of the Asset Managers’ Serbian sensation Sara Klisura.   Aiza Maizao-Pontillas got 13 points while Mika Reyes had nine for the Blaze Spikers.   “Cocolife, expect namin na lalaban talaga rin kasi ang ganda ng performance nila eh so para sa amin parang naisip ko nga kanina na wala pa ang isang import naming. Pero excited naman si Ces para doon sa posisyon niya na outside hitter hindi naman ako binigo, na-maximize namin ang strength niya so para sa amin malaking bagay,” said Petron coach Shaq Delos Santos. Cocolife dropped to 4-3. Meanwhile, the Cargo Movers cruise to an easy 25-21, 25-17, 25-14 victory over Cignal. With Venezuelan import Maria Jose Perez and Kim Fajardo at the helm, the Cargo Movers asserted their dominance early on before going for the kill en route to this impressive victory. Perez, the reigning Most Valuable Player awardee, delivered 15 kills to finish with game-high 16 points while Fajardo uncorked five aces on top of 18 excellent sets to help the Cargo Movers solidify their hold at the second spot with a 4-1 card. Kennedy Bryan and Aby Marano were also on fire as they knocked down nine points apiece while playing solid defense at the net, leaving HD Spikers’ prolific imports Jeane Horton of United States and Sonja Milanovic struggling for form. Milanovic finished with 12 points while Horton had only 10 markers for the HD Spikers, who suffered their third loss in five matches......»»

Petron tops Cignal to grab early lead; F2 sweeps Cocolife

STA. ROSA CITY – Petron overcame a massive second-set meltdown and pulled off a 25-17, 8-25, 25-20, 25-17 victory over Cignal in the Philippine Superliga  Grand Prix, Saturday at the Sta. Rosa Sports Center. American imports Lindsay Stalzer and Hillary Hurley led the Blaze Spikers' hot start and fast recovery from a dismal second set. Stalzer and Hurley, the duo that spearheaded Petron to the finals of last year’s Grand Prix, combined for 27 of the Blaze Spikers’ 44 attack points while providing leadership down the crucial stretch. They finished with 18 points apiece on top of eight combined aces as the Blaze Spikers took an early lead with a 2-0 win-loss card. “We had some troubles in the second set,” said Petron head coach Shaq Delos Santos. “It’s good that we were able to recover and finish strong.” After trailing by just two, 8-10, the vaunted floor defense of the Blaze Spikers conked out, allowing the HD Spikers to uncork 15 consecutive points to claim the second set, 25-8. But Stalzer and Hurley connived in the attack zone to give Petron an early lead, 8-5, entering the first technical timeout. Cignal import Jeane Horton connected on a backrow attack to pull the HD Spikers closer, 14-17, but the American reinforcements caught fire anew, giving Petron a third-set victory, 25-20. Sonja Milanovic of Bosnia finished with a team-high 23 points while Horton chipped in 20 markers for the HD Spikers, who suffered their first loss after a rousing debut against Cocolife last Tuesday. Meanwhile, F2 Logistics kicked off its title-retention bid in style as it made short work of Cocolife, 25-21, 25-15, 25-16, in the second match. Veteran Cha Cruz unleashed her deadly form while last year’s Most Valuable Player Maria Jose Perez of Venezuela stood out, spearheading the Cargo Movers at the attack zone of this match that lasted for 84 minutes. Cruz punched in six of her 16 points off aces while Perez chipped in 14 markers for the Cargo Movers, who are missing the services of head coach Ramil de Jesus and the stars of De La Salle University this season. They joined opening-day winner Foton with a 1-0 slate while rival Petron is ahead after crushing Cignal in four sets early in the day. Serbian Sara Klisura and American Taylor Milton were the lone bright spots on offense with 17 and 12 points, respectively, for the Asset Managers, who have yet to win in two matches. .....»»

Hyundai vehicle sales slowed in Jan

Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. (Hari) started the year with a "modest" 3-percent growth in sales volume in January 2018 after surging at two digits in the same month last year. In a statement, Hari said it had sold 2,903 units of vehicles in January compared to 2,817 units previously as the take up of passenger cars dropped while sales of commercial vehicles grew by almost half year-on-year. "January's performance provides a jump-start to 2018," Hari president and CEO Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo said.

UAAP Football: DLSU squeaks by pesky UE

The DLSU Green Archers survived a gritty UE Red Warriors squad to get a hard-earned 3-2 victory at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium in the continuation of the UAAP Season 80 Football tournament action Thursday morning. Paolo Perez scored the go-ahead goad early in the second half, as he slid his way inside the penalty box, went left and fired the goal in the 49th minute. It was all chaos in the first half as the two teams scored all of the first four goals of the game in a 15-minute span. Jed Diamante drew first blood for the Green Archers, receiving a great pass from midfield, launching it from just inside the boundaries of the box in the 31st minute for a 1-0 La Salle lead. UE found a stroke of luck, two actually, as striker Mar Diano exploited the helpless Green Archer defense, taking advantage of a wide-open goal, scoring the equalizer for UE in the 38th minute. The Red Warriors then managed to get the ball back and utilized great passing to pass it to Regil Galaura, who scored just outside the goalkeeper's box to give UE a 2-1 lead in the 40th minute. "That was because we were too eager to defend. Yung gigil, that's what had happened. We had left them open, and there were three, four attacking against two of us. Thre were mistakes, because of too eagerness, too anxious to defend. They were not thinking too straight," La Salle coach Hans-Peter Smit said after the game. Perhaps stunned by the turn of events, La Salle scrambled to score quickly, as Chris Lawless again tied the game at 2-all with a goal fired from the left side of the UE defense in the first minute of the added extra time. "[The team] had to make some adjustments. It's just, like I said, like in previous games, even after the loss [vs Ateneo], they showed some something else, much different, which is what I want, and which I like now," Smit said. The longtime coach added that the scintillating weather conditions made it much harder for the two teams to play better, as some were already cramping up by halftime. But the team's confidence rose as Lawless scored the game-tying goal jsut before the end of the first half, which provided for Perez to make the go-ahead goal. "I was thinking if we scored before the halftime, I had a feeling we would win the game. The chances that we had, we had allowed the chances, then more than UE, we just had to finish it." DLSU, which had a dismal sixth-place finish last year, has already shown strides of improvement since the start of Season 80, and their coach has already been noticing it. "Attitude. That's it. They had showed much more better attitude than last year. And I'm much more satisfied with that." Due to the win, La Salle obtained their 9th point, moving to three wins and a loss, while UE sits at a win, a draw, and two losses for 4 points. -- Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»

Ebondo proves to be too much as CEU downs Zark’s-LPU

Centro Escolar University once again leaned on Rod Ebondo as his game-high 33 points towed his side to a 91-85 win against Zark’s Burger-Lyceum of the Philippines University in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup on Tuesday at the Marikina Sports Center. The Congolese bruiser was superb as always, hauling down 20 rebounds and also collecting three assists, two steals, and two blocks to preserve the Scorpions’ 3-0 card. “We’re so happy dahil nanalo kami against LPU,” said coach Yong Garcia. “I’m very thankful sa kanila. Tinrabaho talaga nila yung panalo.” Art Aquino also chipped in 18 markers and six boards, while Orlan Wamar churned out nine points, five rebounds, and three assists. CEU banked on its experience late as Aquino broke the 84-all deadlock with a drive in the final 1:20. Nino Ibañez split his freebies on the other end in the last 32.5 seconds, but though Jaycee Marcelino secured the offensive rebound, he would throw the ball away and lead to an Orlan Wamar and-one play with 25.9 ticks on the clock. CJ Perez still tried to keep Zark’s-LPU in the game, but he continued to misfire from the field before Ebondo sealed the game with a thunderous dunk. It was a frustrating night for Perez, who had 17 points and eight rebounds but went 7-of-20 from the field. Jaycee Marcelino got 15 markers and seven rebounds as they kept the ship for the Jawbreakers afloat despite the limited minutes from Mike Nzeusseu, who sprained his ankle in the first half. Zark’s-LPU saw its four-game winning streak halted as it dropped to 4-2. BOX SCORES CEU 91 — Ebondo 33, Aquino 18, Wamar 9, Arim 6, Cruz 6, Fuentes 6, Caballero 4, Guinitaran 3, Manlangit 2, Opiso 2, Veron 2, Saber 0. ZARK’S BURGER-LPU 85 — Perez 17, Jc. Marcelino 15, Jv.
