Petron blazes to 3-0 card, holds solo lead

MALOLOS CITY –-- Petron kept its clean slate intact with a 20-25, 25-19, 25-21, 25-21 win over the listless Cocolife Asset Managers Saturday in the Belo-Philippine Superliga (PSL) Invitational Conference Saturday at the Malolos Sports and Convention Center here. The Blaze Spikers bagged their third straight win in as many outings to keep its solo hold of the league.  Cocolife dropped to 0-3 card.   Meanwhile, Cignal took its sweet time before blasting away with an emphatic performance on both ends to pull off a 20-25, 25-10, 25-20, 25-10 win over Sta. Lucia. Rachel Anne Daquis had an impressive all-around performance while Honey Royse Tubino spearheaded a sizzling run in the deciding set to lift the HD Spikers to an easy win. In the second match, Foton flirted with disaster before hammering a 25-19, 25-16, 23-25, 26-24 win over Generika-Ayala. Dindin Santiago and Gretchel Soltones played like a two-headed spiking machine, finishing with 19 and 18 points, respectively, for the Tornadoes, who started out slow but caught fire in the crucial stretch of the fourth set to conquer the victory. With the win, the HD Spikers and the Tornadoes are now tied at the second spot with a 2-1 win-loss mark behind unbeaten Petron. The Blaze Spikers, however, are still playing neophyte Cocolife as of press time. Daquis, a fresh recruit from RC Cola-Army, delivered seven kills, three aces and two blocks for 12 points while Tubino finished with 11 markers for the HD Spikers, who fielded their second unit early in the game before veterans like Daquis, Tubino, Jovelyn Gonzaga and Chie Saet restored order in the second and third sets. “We managed to cut down our errors unlike last game,” said Cignal coach George Pascua, admitting they can’t afford to relax as they’re setting their sights on making it to the semifinals. “We have a very good chance of making it to the top three. We just need to work hard and treat each game as if it’s a championship match.” Daquis said their performance may be impressive, but they still remain a work in progress. “We’ve been together for only a month. We’re still working on making some adjustments,” said the comely open spiker, who was named Most Valuable Player of the PSL All-Filipino Conference two years ago. The HD Spikers emerged with less errors compared to the Lady Realtors, 24-31, while having a huge advantage in the attack points, 50-31, and aces, 9-4. One of the two new teams this year, the Lady Realtors came out firing in the opening set as 6-foot-1 Lourdes Clemente and hard-hitting Rachel Austero took turns in piercing the defensive blanket of Cignal in the first set. But after Cignal equalized the match at one set apiece, the fire in the eyes of Sta. Lucia slowly dwindled as the HD Spikers turned a 16-all deadlock into a 24-18 lead to capture the third set and gain a sky-high morale entering the fourth. Clemente finished with eight kills for 10 points while Jonah Sabete had eight kills for the Lady Realtors, who have yet to win in two starts.       .....»»

Brazil 1st to qualify for World Cup, Argentina in danger

MAURICIO SAVARESE, Associated Press br /> SAO PAULO (AP) — A resurgent Brazil squad under new management became the first team to qualify for the World Cup on Tuesday, the same day archrival Argentina heightened its risk of missing a spot at Russia 2018. The five-time World Cup champions had a 3-0 victory over seventh-place Paraguay in Sao Paulo, moving to 33 points from 14 matches in South American qualifying. The Brazilians secured a direct spot for Russia 2018 after third-place Uruguay lost 2-1 to Peru in Lima. Argentina, playing without suspended star Lionel Messi, lost 2-0 to Bolivia in the altitude of La Paz earlier and slipped from third to fifth with four matches remaining. The top four in South America earn direct places at the World Cup. The fifth-ranked South American team goes into a playoff against a team from Oceania for a spot in Russia. Argentina has 22 points from six wins and four draws, putting coach Edgardo Bauza under intense pressure to step aside. While Argentina struggled, Colombia had a 2-0 win at Ecuador, posting its first win in Quito in 20 years and ended the day in second spot in qualifying with 24 points. Ecuador dropped out of the top five for the first time, slipping to sixth with 20 points. Also on Tuesday Copa America champion Chile beat last-place Venezuela 3-1 in Santiago and climbed back to fourth spot with 23 points. ____ ARGENTINA Argentina's best chance of qualifying for the next World Cup seemingly relies on winning an appeal to have Messi's suspension shortened. The Barcelona star made offensive remarks to a Brazilian linesman in the 1-0 victory against Chile last Thursday and, if the FIFA ruling prevails, will only return to the team in their last match for qualifiers in October against Ecuador. From a TV set in the locker room, Messi saw Argentina little by little fade into an average side outrun by the Bolivians at the 3,600 meters of altitude. The last time the Argentines managed to win in La Paz was in 2005. Of the five defenders Bauza wanted to field against the ninth-place Bolivians, only left-winger Marcos Rojo was available. Still, the Argentinians seemed to be handling the Bolivians, creating the best opportunities in the first 30 minutes. But then striker Juan Arce headed home a cross from Pablo Escobar in the 32nd minute to open the scoring for the hosts. The Argentina started losing condition at altitude and Bolivia capitalized via striker Marcelo Moreno, who fired home from close range after a cross from Flores to make it 2-0 in the 52nd. 'We are alive and we want to qualify for the World Cup. This is a fight that we will keep fighting,' Bauza told a post-match news conference, before admitting there were big concerns within the squad. 'Yes, the players are worried because no one likes to lose.' The coach also said 'it is strange' that Messi's ban was decided so quickly. 'It is regrettable that he could not play, but even more so that there was no time for me to work with someone else,' Bauza said. 'I am a little surprised with the time they gave me to make the change.' Argentina's next games will be in August at Uruguay and in Buenos Aires against Venezuela. In October, the World Cup finalists will face Peru at home and Ecuador in Quito. ____ BRAZIL The atmosphere in Sao Paulo was party-like for the 44,000 fans in attendance for another Brazil masterclass. All three goals that took Brazil to the next World Cup showed either great skill or consistent teamwork and showed more evidence that it will be one of the favorites for the title. It was also in Sao Paulo as Corinthians coach that Tite became a serious candidate for the Brazil job, after winning multiple national and international titles. The opener was scored at 33 minutes when midfielder Philippe Coutinho ran to the right flank, counted on Paulinho's dummy pass to give him space so he could poach it from the edge of the box. In the second half, Brazil had the chance to make it 2-0 after a superb run by Neymar that ended in a controversial penalty. But the Brazilian missed his first clear opportunity to score. He didn't miss in the 63rd, leaving three adversaries behind as he made it 2-0. In the 85th, Neymar and Coutinho exchanged passes, found Paulinho at the edge of the box and the midfielder used his heel to find Marcelo in front of the goalkeeper. The crowd at Arena Corinthians ended the game chanting Tite's name, which put tears in the eyes of the Brazil coach. After he learned the result in Lima and that Brazil had secured the World Cup spot, Tite raised his hands to the sky at the end of his press conference and said: 'Thank you, dear God.' ____ COLOMBIA Midfielder James Rodriguez, the best player of the match in Quito, was only 5-years old the last time Colombia had an away win at Ecuador. He started to break the Colombian drought at 20 minutes. Almost accidentally, Rodriguez touched the ball with his back after a low cross from Borja and it slowly went inside. At 32 minutes he started a play that finished in a similar goal scored by striker Juan Cuadrado — with his feet, though. In the second half, Rodriguez helped Colombia control a match that could have ended with an even bigger goal difference in favor of the visitors. Ecuador's chances of a comeback were diminished when defender Luis Caicedo was sent off after a rough challenge on the hour. That means Ecuador won't have one of their best defenders against Brazil in August. Colombia now has 24 points and could end the round in second or third, depending on Uruguay's result in Peru. In August coach Jose Pekerman's team will play at Venezuela and then hosts leaders Brazil. In October, they will play against Paraguay at home and away at Peru. .....»»

NLEX trades for Rabeh Al-Hussaini

Yeng Guiao finally made a trade. Needing all the help they could get, the NLEX Road Warriors have traded for big man Rabeh Al-Hussainin, reuniting the former UAAP Most Valuable Player with the coach that drafted him to the PBA seven years ago. The transaction, first reported by Tempo, the Meralco Bolts first sent Al-Hussaini to Blackwater for a 2018 second-round pick. The Elite then shipped the former Ateneo star to NLEX for a 2017 second-round selection. Blackwater facilitated the swap as conduit since NLEX and Meralco can't make direct trades as sister teams. Al-Hussaini was drafted second overall by Guiao to the now defunct Air21/Burger King franchise back in 2010. He won Rookie of the Year that season despite getting traded to the then Petron Blaze Boosters. Al-Hussainin joins an NLEX team in shambles as the Road Warriors have started the 2017 Commissioner's Cup with a 0-3 mark. .....»»
