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......»»

Kelly Williams rides ‘Angkas’ to beat traffic for TNT game

There's a first time for everything. Even for someone as punctual as TNT forward Kelly Williams, who has never been late coming into a game throughout his 12-year career, his time was up. As iftraffic along C-5 Road in Taguig City wasn't already horrible as it is, what made thingsworse on Wednesday night was a fire that razed a residential area around the time when Williams was on his way to Araneta Coliseum in Cubao coming from his home in Alabang for a 7 p.m. game against Blackwater.

'Angkas' saves Kelly Williams from traffic on his way to the PBA

In one of the most random things to happen this season, ride-hailing app "Angkas" came through in the clutch for veteran TNT forward Kelly Williams. Coming from his home in Alabang, Williams got caught in heavy traffic along C5 and was acutally late for TNT's Philippine Cup matchup against the Blackwater Elite Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum. Already in panic, Kelly had to go the unconventional route and got help from the "Uber for motorcycles." "Yeah, oh my God. I was having a panic attack in my car. Coming from the south, I got to Taguig and about two and a half hours, I heard there was a fire in C5 and I was just like 'oh my God what am I gonna do.'" Williams said, detailing the entire incident. "So my driver said check Angkas so I was like okay, Uber for motorcycles. I got out of the car in the middle of C5, in the middle of traffic, and found this guy under the overpass. He was surprised to see me, I put my helmet on, jumped on the motorcycle and we got here. We were on the road for about 40 minutes," he added. Williams, who didn't play in the first half but still managed to get six points, six rebounds, and four blocks, said that it was a fun experience overall. However, that was the first and last time for him. "It was fun, it was actually pretty fun but, gosh, never again. Plan ahead guys," the 2008 PBA MVP said. "Initially I was scared, because he was swerving pretty well. But I got used to it, we got to the open air and it was fun. I was more worried about what coach would say," Williams added. "Coach said 'don't do it again.'" Overall, the entire thing can be charged to experience Kelly said. More importantly, he added that he tipped his driver pretty well for coming through in the clutch. "I considered running, I considered jogging. Whatever you gotta do. It was a good experience though, thank you to the cyclist. I think his name was Richard. He was a life saver," Kelly said. "I tipped him very handsomely. it was about a hundred [fee] but I'm sure I paid whatever was in my pocket because I was very grateful," Williams added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
