Jet Spikers outlast Nationals; HD Spikers take semis top seed

Philippine Air Force showed its might as it overpowered Rebisco-Philippines, 25-23, 9-25, 23-25, 25-23, 16-14, Tuesday in the 2019 Spikers’ Turf Reinforced Conference at the Paco Arena in Manila.   Ranran Abdilla uncorked 24 points coming off 17 attacks, six aces, and a block while also adding 21 receptions and six digs for an all-around performance for the Jet Spikers, who tied Cignal with a 10-1 win-loss record. Fauzi Ismail added 14 markers for Air Force, which sent the Nationals to an 8-3 slate a day before the squad flies to Thailand for a weeklong tournament. Ismail scored off a kill as the Jet Spikers broke a 14-14 deuce in the deciding frame. Madz Gampong then delivered the final blow with a kill from the right wing. “Tinry ko ‘yung Air Force team ko kung hanggang saan sila aabot kapag wala yung sila Bryan [Bagunas], sila Kim [Malabunga], saka Francis [Saura], so ‘yun ginawa naman [nila] yung dapat nilang gawin,” said Air Force head coach Rhovyl Verayo. “[Pinahiram] ko muna ‘yung ibang players ko doon sa National Team kasi they’re going to Thailand tomorrow ‘di ba, kasi alam ko hindi pa rin sila buo eh,” he added. Bagunas collected 26 points on 22 attacks, three blocks, and an ace with his 17 excellent receptions for the Nationals. The National Team is set to fly out to Thailand on Wednesday for the 2019 Sealect Tuna Volleyball Championships. Meanwhile, after a disappointing loss to Sta. Elena last Sunday, Cignal vented its ire on the Animo Green Blazing Spikers, 25-21, 25-16, 25-17. Ysay Marasigan paced Cignal with 12 points while Marck Espejo added 11 points for the HD Spikers, who took the top seed in the semis by virtue of higher tiebreak over Air Force. Animo, who bowed out of competition with a 5-6 card, was led by Kieffer Reyes with six points. In a battle of also-ran squads, the Phoenix Volley Masters ran past the Philippine Coast Guard Dolphins in four sets, 27-25, 25-21, 20-25, 25-20, to notch their second win in nine outings. Razzel Palisoc fired 11 points on nine attacks and two blocks while Mark Enciso and Lorenze Santos had nine points each for IEM. Jonarth Molinyawe and Esmail Kasim both scored 14 points for Coast Guard, who remained winless in nine starts......»»

Lloyd s tiny golf clap delivers big message from US women

By Ronald Blum, Associated Press PARIS (AP) — Carli Lloyd had just scored on an 18-yard volley to put the United States ahead 11 minutes in against Chile. After leaping, pumping a fist and hugging teammate Lindsey Horan, she raised both hands chin high and made four tiny pitter-patter claps, the type seen more frequently at Pebble Beach than Parc des Princes. A message? You bet. I made a gif of @CarliLloyd’s celebration golf clap after her first goal in #USACHI because I needed this to exist for every time someone tone polices a #USWNT celebration. #USWNT #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/Sw7rUA3ID2 — Phil (@ALazyJellyfish) June 16, 2019 Easy wins and lots of goals are par for the course when it comes to the U.S. women's soccer team. "I can't take credit for it. I'm not sure if Lindsey is taking credit for it," Lloyd said after a 3-0 victory Sunday night advanced the U.S. to the round of 16. "She had told me if we score, that's what we're going to do so I just went along with it after I did my little celebration But it was fun. I think it made a statement on the sideline there. It was cool." A record-setting 13-0 rout of Thailand that opened the tournament for the Americans sparked a debate back home. Celebration had not been discussed this much since Kool & the Gang. Some cried poor sportsmanship. Others argued players shouldn't be asked to let up on soccer's biggest stage. All the harrumphing was heard across the Atlantic. "I guess we could have just passed it around the back for a million times, but that's boring. That's disrespectful to everyone: fans, ourselves" said 33-year-old Megan Rapinoe, the pink-haired veteran famous for running to a corner flag and screaming "Born in the USA" into a television microphone after goal against Colombia in the 2011 World Cup. "The only thing you ask of an athlete really is to put it all out there and do the best you can. It's not in our DNA ever." Coach Jill Ellis speculated Lloyd's inspiration was her spouse, professional golfer Brian Hollins. "I'm guessing it was a shout-out to her husband," Ellis said. Horan said Emily Sonnett, a 25-year-old defender at her first World Cup, suggested responses. Trolling critics was the goal. "We decided to do something different today," Horan said with an impish smile. "Handshakes were part of it. Golf clap was part of it." Only the standout play of goalkeeper Christiane Endler lowered the Americans' offensive output from Wonder Woman levels to the mere mundane. The U.S. peppered Chile with 26 shots to one for the South Americans, raising the U.S. margin to 65-3 over two matches that seemed more training than tests. Alyssa Naeher, the Americans' new World Cup goalkeeper, was noticeable only when an unmarked Carla Guerrero redirected Claudia Soto's free kick past her midway through the first half. Guerrero was called offside. More Americans were in the tournament-high crowd of 45,594 that filled Parc des Princes than walked around Sunday in Paris, Kentucky, or Texas. Quite different from the stands 21 years and one day earlier, when Germany beat the U.S. men 2-0 on the very same field in the Americans' 1998 World Cup opener on goals by Andreas Möller and Jürgen Klinsmann. Fans clad in red, white and blue jammed the Metro hours before kickoff, streaming on the No. 9 line at Trocadero, Republique and Richelieu-Drouot and emerging on at Porte de Saint-Cloud on the sunny afternoon. "We're in France, and yet we felt like we had a home game," said Lloyd, at 36-year-old the oldest woman with a multi-goal World Cup match. Despite their second easy win, the Americans maintained there was no reason to chill: Thailand is ranked 34th in the world and Chile is 39th. The Americans need a win or draw against No. 9 Sweden on Thursday in order to win the group. A victory likely means a second-round matchup against No. 13 Spain or No. 16 China, which would put the U.S. on track for a quarterfinal matchup against fourth-ranked France in Paris. Ellis would not speculate whether her team would be better off finishing second and winding up in the other half of the bracket. "There's a lot of grass to navigate between now and potential matchups," she said. "This game is a crazy game, and you have to bring it every single match." No team has won consecutive Women's World Cups since the event began in 1991, a reason for sangfroid. "We're climbing up a mountain now," Lloyd said, "and it's only going to get harder.".....»»

For Love of Game: Valdez takes lower paycheck to play in Thailand

Local volleyball superstar Alyssa Valdez will be receiving less than what a club in the Philippines can offer her as salary playing for 3BB Nakornnont but the experience of playing and carrying the country’s pride in the Thai League is more than enough compensation. The two-time UAAP champion is more focused on learning from her stint and going back to spread the knowledge and experience she gained at home. “I think this is really big (playing abroad). It’s well known na here sa Philippines yung volley. I think we need to level up and I think one way of getting it is for players going to different countries to play and go back here and share everything,” said the 23-year-old open hitter in an earlier interview. “’Yun naman din ang goal and para maging inspiration din sa mga bata na aspiring volleyball players.”    The former Ateneo de Manila Queen Eagle was formally welcomed by the Thai squad by presenting her the team’s jersey where she will wear the no. 9 uniform – the same jersey number she wore while playing and winning three titles for University of Sto. Tomas high school in the UAAP. As for the specifics of her contract, a source from Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc., which processed her release paper to play abroad, Valdez will earn 30,000 Baht (P42,000) as monthly salary while playing for the club in the Thai League and the Thai-Denmark Super League.                 Valdez’s monthly paycheck will be way below what she had earned with her last local team Bureau of Customs during the V-League Reinforced Conference few months back. The three-time UAAP Most Valuable Player reportedly received a six-digit contract from the Transformers for the two-month tournament. Valdez flew to Thailand last Sunday and will stay there until early April. She’ll debut for 3BB Nakornnont on January 29 against King-Bangkok. Valdez also vowed to return next month to join either the Cebu or Davao tryouts for the national team that will see action in the 29th Kuala Lumpur Southeast Asian Games.     The local volleyball phenom was a part of the national squad during the Singapore edition of the biennial meet where she was also chosen as Team Philippines flag-bearer during the traditional parade of nations.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles     .....»»

ONE: Filipino Roel Rosauro feels like a World Champion after first win

Filipino striker Roel “Akiyama” Rosauro is on cloud nine after getting his first victory in The Home of Martial Arts. The Yaw-Yan Ardigma Cebu representative used every facet of his striking to emerge victorious over Yohan "The Ice Man" Mulia Legowo at ONE: A NEW TOMORROW this past Friday, 10 January, at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand. He went home with a winner’s medal for the first time in his ONE Championship career, but he feels like a World-Title winner already.  “I’m really, really happy. I feel like I’ve won the belt even though it’s only a medal,” Rosauro said after the bout.  “Now I plan to train harder and if there’s a chance to compete again, I’ll jump on it.” Rosauro opened the bout guns blazing as he launched a wide array of strikes that targeted Legowo’s head and body. "The Ice Man" was persistent and pressed forward the whole time, but it was the Cebuano who got the better of the exchanges. He dominated for fifteen minutes and managed to stuff the Indonesian’s takedown attempts. After the final bell, all three judges saw the contest in favor of Rosauro. “He did not do anything [that] surprised me. I really studied his game,” Rosauro said.  It was a win like no other for Rosauro after he started with consecutive losses in the world's largest martial arts organization. After all, he had to muster every ounce of his warrior spirit to live up to his believers' expectations. “That was big. What brought me to victory was the belief of my countrymen, my family, my manager, and my master.” Rosauro realizes he has a long way to go before he gets a sniff of his dream of vying for a ONE World Title. For now, he gives himself a pat on the back for making the Philippines proud, though he believes there is still a lot to work on.  “I’ll give my performance a grade of nine or eight out of ten,” Rosauro said. “I still have a lot to work on, particularly my cardio.” Meanwhile, ONE Championship returns to Rosauro’s home country for ONE: FIRE & FURY on 31 January at the Mall Of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines.  Six of the Philippines’ local heroes will battle foes from all over the world in ONE’s first offering in the country.    Catch ONE: FIRE & FURY on Friday, January 31st LIVE at 8:30 PM on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»

ABAP closely monitoring pneumonia outbreak in Wuhan ahead of Olympic qualifier

The Association of Boxing Alliances in the Philippines (ABAP) is closely monitoring the situation in Wuhan, China following an outbreak of pneumonia just weeks ahead of the Asia and Oceania boxing qualifier for this year’s Tokyo Olympics. Ed Picson, secretary-general of ABAP, said those from the host city and the participating countries are keeping their fingers crossed before the event is held Feb. 3 to 14. Picson told the PSA Forum at Amelie Hotel Manila on Tuesday that apprehensions remain despite a letter they received on Monday from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Boxing Task Force, saying, “no travel restrictions and extra measures are needed.” The IOC letter also said that the World Health Organization (WHO) has outlined that “China has strong public health capacities and resources to respond and manage respiratory disease outbreaks,” and that the WHO does not recommend measures for travelers to Wuhan, which is 1,152 kms north of Beijing. Picson said a couple of countries have expressed willingness to take over the hosting of the Olympic qualifier, including Thailand and even the Philippines, which recently hosted the 30th Southeast Asian Games. “With our recent hosting of the SEA Games, we have the mechanics in place,” said Picson. However, he doubted if China would give up the hosting since it has other venues nationwide that can stage the multi-nation event. Chinese authorities have ruled out any relation to the deadly SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and MERS and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) to the new type of coronavirus that has struck Wuhan, as well as human-to-human contact as a way of transmitting the disease. If the event pushes through in Wuhan, Picson said the Philippine delegation would still take the necessary measures to ensure the safety of its boxers and officials. Picson said ABAP would field as many as eight boxers to the Asia and Oceania qualifiers, including five male and three female boxers, most of them gold medal winners in the recent SEA Games. They include entries in the men’s 52 kg, 57 kg, 63 kg, 69 kg and 75 kg divisions, and the 51 kg, 57 kg and 69 kg in the women’s side. Picson said the Asia and Oceania qualifiers is the best way for Filipino boxers to qualify to this year’s Olympics because of the number of slots being offered. In the men’s 52 kg, 57 kg and 63 kg and women’s 51 kg, six slots are at stake, including the four semifinalists and the two boxers that will lose to the eventual gold and silver medalists. The rest of the divisions will offer five slots to Tokyo. For those who fail in Wuhan and the three other continental qualifiers (the Africas, Americas and Europe), the World qualifying tournament in Paris in May will be their last chance.  .....»»

Ceres Negros downs Shan United to move on to AFC Champions League Preliminary Round 2

Filipino football club Ceres Negros FC survived Myanmar-based club Shan United FC 3-2, Tuesday evening at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium to advance to the Preliminary Round 2 of the 2019 AFC Champions League Group Stage. It didn’t take long for the Pinoy side to take control of the match, as Robert Lopez Mendy put the Busmen ahead in just the 5th minute.  Star striker Bienve Marañon doubled the Ceres Negros lead with in the 41st minute.  The visitors tried to make things interesting in the second half, as Shan United pulled one back courtesy of a Zin Min Tun header in the 73rd minute.  OJ Porteria responded by restoring the home side’s two-goal advantage with a conversion inside the box in the 79th minute.   Things began to get a bit tense in the final ten minutes of the match as Shan United, playing with a heightened sense of urgency, began to get a little too physical.  The aggression paid off for Shan United, as Djawa Maximin scored easily in the 87th minute to make it 3-2 and once again put the pressure on Ceres Negros.  With four minutes of added time, Shan United desperately searched for the equalizer, but Ceres Negros was able to hold on for the win.  With the victory, Ceres Negros moves on to face Thailand’s Port FC on January 21st at the PAT Stadium in Bangkok.

FIBA: TNT’s Dickel leads coaches listed for Gilas in Asia Cup

Gilas Pilipinas’ head coach will be on an interim basis when the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup qualifiers kick off February with the Philippines taking on Thailand and Indonesia. The 24-man pool is set but the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) is yet to make an official announcement on the team’s coaching staff. [Related: FIBA: Pingris makes Gilas return in FIBA Asia Cup team pool] However, it appears that FIBA’s official website is first to the news as the Asia Cup lists the trio of Mark Dickel, Sandy Arespacochaga, and Nenad Trunic as coachs for Gilas Pilipinas. Dickel is TNT’s active consultant and has been with the KaTropa since the 2018 Governors’ Cup. This would be his first official stint with the Philippine national team. Meanwhile, Coach Sandy is one of the top deputies not only for TNT but for the Ateneo Blue Eagles in the UAAP. He’s also a veteran assistant coach for many of our national teams. Trunic is a Serbian mentor who had previous stints in Iran. “We’re not ready to announce a full-time coach in February for sure,” SBP President Al Panlilio said in a previous interview. “But we’re hoping that… the next window is November, so it gives us time to get the right coach moving forward. It has to be full-time coach,” he added. — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

ONE Championship: Pinoy Roel Rosauro victorious at ONE: A NEW TOMORROW in Bangkok

BANGKOK, THAILAND - The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), put together another electric martial arts extravaganza at Bangkok’s sprawling IMPACT Arena last Friday night, 10 January. ONE: A NEW TOMORROW featured the absolute best in local and international martial arts talent, who all showcased their incredible skills inside the ONE Championship ring. Kicking off the action at ONE: A NEW TOMORROW were featherweights Roel Rosauro of the Philippines and “The Ice Man” Yohan Mulia Legowo of Indonesia. Rosauro, a Filipino national Muay Thai champion, put together a clinical display of striking for three rounds, tagging Legowo with punishing combinations to the head and midsection. Although Legowo would give Rosauro a good challenge, he was a step behind constantly throughout the bout. All three judges saw the bout in favor of the Filipino to win by unanimous decision. In the main event, Thailand’s own Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnon put on a striking clinic, needing just three rounds to finish off former world champion Jonathan “The General” Haggerty of England to retain the ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Championship.  Rodtang closed the show in impressive fashion, stopping Haggerty via technical knockout behind staggering body shots and his usual forward aggressiveness. Rodtang set the tone early in the bout, landing a shot to the body that sent Haggerty down to the canvas in round one. Rodtang continued to put the pressure on Haggerty in the third round as the Thai star scored three consecutive knockdowns to put the challenger away and successfully defend his title. In the co-main event, two-sport world champion Stamp Fairtex of Thailand remained perfect in her mixed martial arts career after defeating India’s Puja “The Cyclone” Tomar by first-round technical knockout. A botched takedown attempt from Tomar led to Stamp taking her back and eventually getting to back-mount. From there, Stamp began to punish Tomar with punches and elbows to get the stoppage victory and move one step closer to the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Championship. Thailand’s own “The Million Dollar Baby” Sangmanee Sathian Muaythai put on a kicking clinic as he punished Japan’s Kenta Yamada en route to a unanimous decision win in a ONE Super Series Muay Thai contest. From the opening bell, Sangmanee peppered Yamada with a barrage of kicks to the legs, body, and head. Yamada remained game and kept coming forward, but that did little to stop Sangmanee from unloading even more kicks, as the seven-time world champion cruised to a dominant decision victory in his home country.  Vietnamese-American Thanh Le continues to steamroll through the featherweight division after knocking out Japan’s Ryogo “Kaitai” Takahashi in the first round. Le connected on a thunderous right hand that dropped Takahashi and spelled the beginning of the end. Le, sensing a finish was within reach, turned up the aggression and swarmed on Takahashi, landing punches and knees to end the bout midway through the opening round.  England’s Liam “Hitman” Harrison opened the main card in spectacular fashion, scoring a first-round knockout win over Malaysia’s Mohammed “Jordan Boy” Bin Mahmoud in a Muay Thai bout. Harrison, an eight-time Muay Thai world champion, scored the first knockdown early in the first round after connecting on a well-placed left hook. Mohammed answered the count, but would be sent right back down moments later, courtesy of a succession of elbows from Harrison. “Hitman” then took “Jordan Boy” out with a flurry of punches that forced the referee to step in and end the bout.  In a ONE Super Series Muay Thai contest, three-time Muay Thai World Champion “The Elbow Zombie” Muangthai PK.Saenchaimuaythaigym put on a show in front of his hometown fans, eking out a split decision win over Algerian former ONE World Title challenger Brice “The Truck” Delval. Muangthai got off to a slow start but picked up steam in the second round, as he began to walk through Delval’s shots while landing punches and kicks of his own. Muangthai continued to push the action in the final round, coming forward and landing strikes as Delval tried to evade the contact. The continuous pressure was enough for Muangthai to earn the hard-fought unanimous decision.  Russian Hand-to-Hand Combat World Champion Raimond Magomedaliev impressed in his second appearance on the ONE Championship stage, dominating American newcomer and COGA Welterweight Champion Joey “Mama’s Boy” Pierotti. Pierotti was certainly a game challenger for the duration of the contest, however, Magomedaliev picked this evening to show off his impeccable striking. He sliced the American with a plethora of sharp elbows to start the bout. Pierotti tried to fall back on his wrestling, but Magomedaliev proved his ring savvy by avoiding a war on the mat with great takedown defense. Just under four minutes in, Magomedaliev swept Pierotti from underneath and then quickly sunk in the bout-ending guillotine choke. In a ONE Super Series kickboxing bout, 2-time IFMA Muay Thai World Champion Adam Noi of Algeria delivered a thorough three-round performance, defeating Victor “Leo” Pinto of France by decision. Noi shocked Pinto in the first round, catching him with a question mark kick that put his opponent on the canvas. Pinto, however, beat the count and was back on his feet to end the frame. Action continued in the second round, with both men going back and forth with powerful combinations. The third round was again close, as the two warriors traded strikes at the center of the ONE Championship ring. Though Pinto showed great defense, Noi’s attacks were on point, enough for the judges to award him the unanimous nod. ONE Warrior Series contract winner Shinechagtga Zoltsetseg of Mongolia made his ONE Championship main roster debut in spectacular fashion, knocking out top-rated Chinese featherweight “Cannon” Ma Jia Wen of China in under a minute. Shinechagtga was aggressive from the opening bell, actively seeking to finish with explosive striking combinations. At the 55-second mark, Shinechagtga caught Ma coming in, connecting on a thudding overhand right that turned the lights out on the Chinese athlete. Shinechagtga threw 29 total strikes, seven of which were significant strikes to the head. In a ONE Super Series Muay Thai contest, ISKA and WBC World Champion Mehdi “Diamond Heart” Zatout of Algeria took on Top King Muay Thai World Champion and former ONE World Title challenger Han Zi Hao of China. Zatout was aggressive to start the bout, but Han was slightly more accurate with his shots. In the second round, Han started off strong, while Zatout came on late with a flurry. By the end of the frame, Han began to fall behind as Zatout picked up the pace. In a close final round, Zatout pulled away in the last minute with accurate combinations to earn a close split decision. Japanese female strawweight Ayaka Miura continued her run of excellence with a dominant showing against Brazilian newcomer and Pan American Sanda Champion Maira Mazar. Miura, a 3rd degree Judo Black Belt, showcased her tremendous grappling skills early, scoring on a spectacular headlock takedown. On the mat, Miura went to her favorite scarfhold position to do damage. In the second round, another headlock takedown from Miura led to an Americana submission, which forced Mazar to tap.

FIBA: Pingris makes Gilas return in FIBA Asia Cup team pool

New year, new Gilas Pilipinas. The pool for the national team set to play in the upcoming FIBA Asia Cup qualifiers has been unveiled, with a mix or pro and amateur players completing the 24-man lineup. There will be 13 amateur players in the pool, led by Isaac Go, Rey Suerte, Allyn Bulandi, and twins Matt and Mike Nieto from the Gilas Draft last December. After those five, the rest of the non-PBA players in the list are Thirdy Ravena, Jaydee Tungcab, Juan Gomez De Liano, Kobe Paras, Dave Ildefonso, Javi Gomez De Liano, Dwight Ramos, and Justine Baltazar. There are 11 PBA players in the pool with Kiefer Ravena, Poy Erram, RR Pogoy, Japeth Aguilar, Christian Standhardinger, CJ Perez, Mac Belo, Matthew Wright, Troy Rosario, Ray Parks, and the returning Marc Pingris. Curiosly enough, June Mar Fajardo is not on the initial pool. Also absent is the name of the Gilas Pilipinas coach, which should be on an “interim basis” for the February window where the Philippines will take on Thailand and Indonesia. After that, that FIBA Asia Cup qualifiers will resume come November for Gilas Pilipinas. — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
