PVL: Petro Gazz ignites quarters streak at expense of BaliPure

Petro Gazz is nothing but confident that it is doing better and better just as the competition gets hotter and hotter in the quarterfinals of the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference Season 2. It’s hard to argue with the Angels following a straight sets shellacking of BaliPure-National University, 25-23, 25-18, and 25-14 on Saturday at the Filoil Flying Centre. “Good yung chances ng team. Hopefully, magtuloy-tuloy,” head coach Jerry Yee told reporters after his girls won for the second time in a row following a loss to open the round robin quarterfinals. “Sa umpisa, ‘di pa magkakakilala e, pero ngayon, unti-unti, nagkakakilala na.” Indeed, Petro Gazz counted four players who contributed at least seven points led by Ukranian reinforcement Anastasiia Trach who had 17 points. Olena Lymareva-Flink, another Ukranian, and Cherry Nunag contributed eight points each and Paneng Mercado also chipped in seven markers. After handling the Water Defenders easy in the first two sets, the Angels found themselves chasing down a 4-7 deficit in the third. The balanced attack returned for them following the first technical timeout in the set, however, and they uncorked an 18-4 burst that put them up, all of a sudden, 22-11. That run only took the fight out of young BaliPure-NU and the Angels soared to a share of second in the standings at 2-1. Yee and his girls try for a third straight win when they take on Iriga-Navy next. For the Water Defenders, Janisa Johnson led the way with 14 points points. She was their lone player in double-digits as fellow import Alexis Matthews only had six markers to her name. Their return to the win column would have to come at the expense of defending champion Pocari Sweat-Philippine Air Force. Alongside Petro Gazz and BaliPure-NU, disputing the last two spots in the semifinals are BanKo-Perlas, Iriga-Navy, Pocari Sweat-Air Force, and Tacloban The top two finishers in the round robin quarterfinals will move on to the next round. Already there are Creamline and PayMaya who secured the top spots in the Final Four after their respective impressive runs in the preliminary round. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PVL: Lady Warriors rise to top spot in quarters

Pocari Sweat-Philippine Air Force took another step forward in making sure its title defense goes through at least the semifinals of the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference. Dropping the first set before regrouping and resoundingly taking the next three, the Lady Warriors sank Iriga-Navy, 23-25, 25-18, 25-20, and 25-22, on Wednesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Reinforcements Maddie Palmer and Ari Love showed the way with 19 and 18 points, respectively. Skipper Myla Pablo was also right there with them with 14 markers to her name. The defending champions took time to get going, though, and allowed Macy Ubben and the Lady Oragons to claim the first frame. “Parang diesel (kami). Yun nga, siguro, kailangan muna nilang masaktan siguro,” head coach Jasper Jimenez shared post-game. From that point, Love took charge and led Pocari Sweat-Air Force to an 8-5 start in the second set that blew up to a lead of as much as eight, 19-11. Both the lead and the momentum would stay with the Lady Warriors for the remainder of the match. Pablo and company are now 2-0 in the round robin quarterfinals – putting them closer and closer to the semifinals. “We need two more wins. Siguro, kung makadalawang panalo pa kami, that’s it, semifinals na,” Jimenez said. Disputing the last two seats in the semifinals along with Pocari-Sweat-Air Force and Iriga-Navy are BaliPure, BanKo-Perlas, Petro Gazz, and Tacloban. “Sana, magtuloy-tuloy ‘tong ganitong performance namin,” Jimenez also remarked. The Lady Oragons fell to 0-2 in the quarterfinals even after a 27-point performance from Ubben. Lauren Whyte also added 18 markers. The top two finishers in the round robin quarterfinals will move on to the next round. Already there are Creamline and PayMaya who secured the top spots in the Final Four after their respective impressive runs in the preliminary round. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PVL: Lady Warriors survive Angels scare

Defending champion Pocari Sweat-Air Force shook off a bad start to clip Petro Gazz, 18-25, 25-20, 26-24, 25-21, Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference quarterfinals opener at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Veteran setter Wendy Semana came up big in her return from an ankle injury that forced her to skip a match as she tallied 36 excellent sets for the Lady Warriors. American Ari Love finished with 23 points while Myla Pablo had 19 for Pocari Sweat, which frustrated Petro Gazz's hitters with 11 kill blocks. American Maddie Palmer posted 15 markers while Angel Antipuesto added eight for the Lady Warriors.    Pocari Sweat joined early round robin quarterfinals winners BaliPure-National University and BanKo. Creamline and PayMaya secured the first two Final Four spots.   The Lady Warriors exacted revenge on their preliminary round tormentor to end a two-game slide while dealing the Angeles their second straight loss. Ukranian Olena Lymareva-Flink had 22 points while Anastasiia Trach posted 16 markers for Petro Gazz.   ---      Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Hope Solo says don t vote for US World Cup bid

By Rob Harris, Associated Press LONDON (AP) — A World Cup winner and Olympic champion with the United States, Hope Solo now wants her country to lose one of its biggest soccer contests: FIFA's vote on the 2026 World Cup host. "I can't say it should be awarded to Morocco," Solo told The Associated Press. "But I don't think it should go to the United States, and that's hard to say." Concerns about the financial dealings of the United States Soccer Federation and the closed men's league system led Solo to that conclusion. By choosing to actively campaign against the U.S.-led North America bid, Solo risks alienating herself further from the soccer community in her homeland. The bid leadership was exasperated when informed Solo was undermining their efforts heading into Wednesday's vote, dismissing her criticism of the governance of soccer but declining to go on the record in detail. This is not an isolated eruption against U.S. Soccer. Solo has reason to be disgruntled. After 202 international appearances — a record for an American goalkeeper — Solo was fired over an outburst at the 2016 Olympics against the opposition and a series of off-the-field controversies. In an attempt to take control of the organization that ostracized her, Solo ran for the U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) presidency in February. There was a resounding verdict: Solo garnered only 1.4 percent of the vote to finish last out of five candidates. Solo still wants to be heard to try to secure equal pay and equal treatment for the U.S. women's team, and force Major League Soccer to open up the closed competition. Her gripes provide a counterpoint to the loyal championing of the American World Cup bid by David Beckham in a video released by MLS, where the former England captain is launching a team in Miami. That is only possible because Beckham secured a cut-price deal for an expansion franchise as part of his contract to play for the Los Angeles Galaxy. "That is not helping the sport in America," Solo said. "I want to see promotion-relegation in the NASL and the MLS. Right now it's true, you have rich ownership groups owning MLS teams and they're only getting richer and they're alienating everybody else. "A new ownership group can't just come in and purchase a team even though they have the financial security, even though they have the commitment. It's controlled by those single individuals at Soccer United Marketing, MLS in particular, (Commissioner) Don Garber." FIFA's statutes enshrine the principle of a system of promotion and relegation in domestic competitions to ensure participation "shall depend principally on sporting merit." The regulations then say that qualification can be subject to other criteria including "financial considerations." MLS stridently defended itself against Solo's criticism, saying team owners have invested more than $3 billion in stadium and training facilities to grow the sport because it's a closed league. "The structure that we have has given owners certainty to make that type of investment," MLS President and Deputy Commissioner Mark Abbott told the AP. "Had we had a system of promotion and relegation it would not have been possible to generate that level of investment from owners, local communities or private banks that help to fund some of these facilities." Solo also questioned Garber's role overseeing MLS and Soccer United Marketing, which is the exclusive marketing partner of U.S. Soccer, while also sitting on the USSF board. "There are too many conflicts of interest that need to be addressed immediately," Solo said. Garber represents MLS on the U.S. Soccer board but recuses himself from discussions about the "sanctioning of other professional leagues in the U.S.," Abbott responded on behalf of the commissioner. Turning on the USSF, Solo said the organization lacks integrity and highlights the absence of an independent ethics committee, which FIFA has. She also filed a claim with the U.S. Olympic Committee, saying the USSF violates a law that offers protections for athletes, alleging improper conditions for soccer players. "If you're an Olympic sport, your national governing body, every NGB has an obligation to give resources and funds to all of its members, not just professional and amateur players or Paralympic team women's teams or youth teams," Solo said. "But what U.S. Soccer does is they give the money directly to the pro teams. So it's in violation of the Ted Stevens Act and I have a hearing in a couple weeks in front of the Olympic Committee. "I also met with Congress members recently. I went to Capitol Hill, met with Republicans and Democrats, and there's a lot of interest to make sure that U.S. Soccer is an organization that actually is run transparently, has integrity and is an open and honest national governing body." Up to 207 soccer federations will vote next Wednesday in Moscow on whether North America or Morocco should host the 2026 World Cup, or the bidding should be reopened by choosing "none of the above." In FIFA's inspections report, North America's bid, which includes Canada and Mexico as minority partners, scored 402 out of 500, while Morocco was marked 275 in part due to a lack of infrastructure. "Hopefully FIFA can stand up and step in and say, 'If we're going to reward you, let's look at everything and point out where you can fix certain things,'" Solo said. Her call for greater transparency from the USSF came after speaking at the London launch conference for the Foundation for Sports Integrity, which has one named official who would not disclose the source of funding for the group or who paid to hire lavish facilities at a Four Seasons hotel. "I want to put my faith and trust in people," Solo said. "Who's funding it? That's no different from the way a lot of organizations are run.".....»»
