Petron, Foton secure semis slots

Defending champion Petron breezed past Marinerang Pilipina, 25-18, 25-13, 25-11, to make its way to the semifinals of the Philippine Super Liga All-Filipino Conference on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Aiza Maizo-Pontillas finally caught fire for the Blaze Spikers, who stretched their winning streak to 12. Maizo delivered 15 points on top of 12 digs while Bernadeth Pons and skipper Frances Molina combined for 24 markers for Petron, which need only one hour and 25 minutes to wrap up the contest. The Blaze Spikers will clash with the survivor in the other quarterfinal battle between Generika-Ayala and Cignal, who will clash on Saturday. "Siyempre sobrang laki kasi lahat naman ng teams ito yung goal makarating sa ganitong status,” said Petron head coach Shaq Delos Santos. “Ngayon nandito na kami kailangan mas maging eager pa kami na pagandahin yung takbo ng team namin kasi siyempre pinaghirapan naman namin," he added. Meanwhile, Foton recovered from a set down to boot out PLDT Home Fibr, 16-25, 25-17, 25-17, 25-12, in the other quarters pairing. Jaja Santiago dropped 20 points off 14 spikes, five kill blocks and an ace while Dindin Santiago-Manabat and Marian Buitre added 15 and 12 markers, respectively, for the Tornadoes, who will take on the winner between no. 2 seed F2 Logistics and Sta. Lucia Realty in the Final Four. The Power Hitters, who played sans Aiko Urdas because of a knee injury, got 22 points from Grethcel Soltones while Jerrili Malabanan and Shola Alvarez got 13 and 10, respectively. The Blaze Spikers had the game in full control that allowed Delos Santos to field in seldom-used players, including Mary Anne Esguerra, Mela Tunay and Toni Basas. Dimdim Pacres and Judith Abil finished with seven points apiece for Marinerang Pilipina, which ended its campaign without a single win to show.    .....»»

Tornadoes take no. 3 seed, Cargo Movers end skid

MALOLOS  CITY -- Foton made a short work of winless Marinerang Pilipina, 25-15, 29-27, 25-14, to end the preliminary round on a high note in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Tuesday at the Malolos Sports and Convention Center here. The Tornadoes finally arrested a three-game skid with sisters Jaja Santiago and Dindin Santiago-Manabat delivering 16 points apiece to send the Lady Skippers into a winless campaign in the 14-game preliminaries. Manabat tallied 13 kills, two aces and a block laced with 11 digs, while Santiago nailed 14 kills and a pair of blocks. Wing spiker Mina Aganon and Elaine Kasilag were also instrumental with nine and eight points, respectively, as well as setter Gyselle Sy, who had 20 excellent sets on top of five markers. Eya Laure, who replaced injured Maika Ortiz, also made her PSL debut for Foton, but only played late in the second and third set finishing with two markers as she was obviously still adjusting to the team’s system. Foton finished the elimination round with an 8-6 win-loss record with idle Generika-Ayala, but the Tornadoes won the quotient with 25 points, two markers ahead of the Lifesavers. The Tornadoes secured the No. 3 spot in the knockout quarterfinals and will face No.6 PLDT on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan City. Nobody scored in double figures for Marinerang Pilipina with Dimdim Pacres and Judith Abil leading the way with nine and eight markers, respectively, as they head into a titanic battle with No.1 Petron (13-1) in the knockout quarterfinals. Meanwhile, F2 Logistics snapped a two-game skid with a dominating 25-18, 25-14, 25-22, victory over Cignal to close the prelims with a 12-2 slate at no. 2 spot. Fil-American Kalei Mau registered 20 points off 16 attacks, two aces and two kill blocks while Majoy Baron and Ara Galang got 14 and 10 markers, respectively, for the Cargo Movers, who will face Sta. Lucia Realty in the quarterfinals. Rachel Anne Daquis was the only HD Spiker in double figures with 14 points. Cignal, which dropped to 7-7, will face Generika-Ayala in the knockout phase......»»

PLDT, Petron survive cliffhanger battles

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY -- Fans inside the jampacked Corpus Christi Gym here were treated to a night of thrill and excitement as Petron and PLDT Home Fibr carved out amazing five-setter victories in the 2019 Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference on Saturday. Sisi Rondina delivered a performance to remember after dropping 32 points in the defending champion Blaze Spikers’ 25-23, 24-26, 24-26, 25-22, 19-17, win over Foton to lock the no. 1 seeding in the quarterfinals. The 5-foot-6 hotshot towered over the giants of the Tornadoes to fill up the stats sheet with 27 attacks, a game-high four kill blocks and an ace laced with 20 digs and 10 excellent receptions for Petron’s 11th straight win to end preliminary round. The Blaze Spikers closed the round with a 13-1 record at the top spot. “Grabe! Grabe! Bilib ako sa puso ng team. Ramdam na namin yung pagod nila pero siyempre sabi ko nga sa kanila wag maggigive up,” said Petron head coach Shaq Delos Santos. “Talagang grabe sila (Foton). Grabeng effort yung ginawa nila at yung eagerness nila na talunin kami.”         Foton controlled the fifth set early before Petron stepped on the gas to engage the Tornadoes in a mad dash to the finish. Rondina made amends on an earlier error with an off the block kill to put Petron at match point before Bernadeth Pons sealed the deal with a cross-court hit. Skipper Ces Molina and Mika Reyes finished with 13 points each while Pons had 12 markers all coming off attacks for Petron, which will take on Marinerang Pilipina in the knockout quarterfinals. Dindin Santiago-Manabat led Foton, which fell to 7-6 card tied with Cignal, with 31 points anchored on 28 kills and three kill blocks. Jaja Santiago had 26 markers while Elaine Kasilag had 11 for the Tornadoes. Meanwhile, Jerrili Malabanan and Grethcel Soltones rose to the occasion as PLDT Home Fibr shocked powerhouse F2 Logistics, 25-21, 26-28, 15-25, 25-19, 15-11, in the curtain-raiser. Down 1-2 in the match as the Cargo Movers dominated them in the resumption of the third set, the duo of Malabanan and Soltones lifted the Power Hitters to force a decider, where both squads fought toe-to-toe lasting for three hours and 31 minutes due to air-conditioning malfunction. Tied at nine in the fifth set, Malabanan scored three of the team’s four straight points to reach match point, 14-10, before Kalei Mau saved a point. But Soltones soared to close out the match and sent F2 Logistics to its second straight defeat. Malabanan and Soltones finished with 21 points apiece with the San Sebastian College standout also putting up 24 digs and 19 excellent receptions. PLDT finished the preliminary with a 6-9 win-loss card, locked in at No.6. Game officials decided to temporarily stop the match with F2 Logistics holding an 8-7 lead in the third frame. It took almost an hour for the venue to reach a cool temperature before referees resumed the game with the Cargo Movers blazing hot dominating the third set for a 2-1 match advantage. But the Power Hitters caught fire in the last two sets also drawing a great game from setter Jasmine Nabor, who had 31 excellent sets on top of six points, as well as Aiko Urdas adding 10 markers. Mau erupted with 28 points including 19 digs and 10 excellent receptions while Ara Galang and Majoy Baron had 19 and 18 points, respectively, for the Cargo Movers, who suffered their second straight setback. Aby Marano added 12 markers while Kim Fajardo returned to action from a fracture finger last conference with 15 excellent sets as F2 Logistics slid to No. 2 with an 11-2 card......»»

PBA Finals: SMB-TNT championship history

The 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup marks only the fifth time that the league’s two flagship teams have squared off for the title. As the winningest team in PBA history, the San Miguel Beermen, the SMC group’s flagship squad, lead the head-to-head showdown with three Finals wins to TNT’s one. Before part 5 of this rivalry begins, here’s how both teams fared during the previous four Finals meetings.   2004-05 Fiesta Conference: SMB def. TNT, 4-1. TNT made both Finals this season back when the PBA was in its two-conference format. The then-Phone Pals lost the Philippine Cup to Ginebra in six games and tried to recover by taking on the Beermen in the Fiest Conference. However, despite the Best Player of the Conference in Willie Miller and the Best Import in Jerald Honeycutt, top-ranked TNT suffered a gentleman’s sweep at the hands of the no. 2 Beermen, who then broke a four-year title drought.   2011 Philippine Cup: TNT def. SMB, 4-2 TNT’s dynasty was built with this championship. The then-Tropang Texters were in a tight race against the Beermen all conference long, with both teams finishing with the same record at the end of the elimination round. TNT got the no. 1 seed after all tiebreaks and then welcomed the no. 2 Beermen in the Finals. The All-Filipino Finals was tied at two games each when the Tropang Texters, led by co-Finals MVPs Jimmy Alapag and Jayson Castro, completely overwhelmed the Beermen in Game 5 and 6, winning by a combined margin of 35 points. It was the first of three straight Philippine Cup titles for TNT, the first team to ever do the feat to win the Perpetual Trophy. The Beermen would later match — and surpass — the feat later in the decade.   2011 Governors’ Cup: Petron (SMB) def. TNT, 4-3 TNT literally came one win away from a Grand Slam in 2011 until San Miguel (then called Petron) ended the dream. Practically TNT’s handpicked Finals opponents, the Blaze Boosters sure made the Tropang Texters pay with a rousing seven-game win for the championship. It’s the only San Miguel championship, out of the current 26, that was won under the Petron name.   2017 Commissioner’s Cup: SMB def. TNT, 4-2 After two Finals series in 2011, the two flagship teams wouldn’t meet each other for a title until six years later. In 2017, the Beermen overcame a TNT winner in Game 1 and a huge KaTropa run in Game 5 to seal the championship in six games, setting up their own run for a Grand Slam. Unfortunately, San Miguel failed to cash in its momentum from the 4-2 Finals win against TNT in the Commissioner’s Cup and failed to complete the triple crown.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Blaze Spikers escape HD Spikers in five

Sisi Rondina came up big to power Petron to a come-from-behind 17-25, 21-25, 25-11, 25-17, 15-10 win over Cignal in the 2019 Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. After missing their previous game against Generika-Ayala, Rondina went full blast as she lit the scoreboard with 23 kills, two blocks and ace off the bench to lift Petron to its eighth win in nine games. Remy Palma chipped in 12 points while Bernadeth Pons put up 10 markers and 22 digs as the Blaze Spikers avoided the upset ax of the HD Spikers after losing the first two sets. Petron stepped on the gas late in the fifth set for a 13-9 lead before Rondina delivered back-to-back hits to finish off the HD Spikers. Mylene Paat and Jovelyn Gonzaga tallied 17 points apiece while Rachel Anne Daquis had 12 markers for Cignal, which fell to 3-5 win-loss card. Meanwhile, F2 Logistics brushed off a rusty start before catching fire in the second set to massacre Sta. Lucia Realty, 25-22, 25-3, 25-12. With Kalei Mau anchoring the offense, the Cargo Movers turned a 10-19 deficit in the first set into a rout to remain flawless in eight games. Mau finished with 13 points while Ara Galang had 11 points and 15 digs and Majoy Baron asserted her might at the defensive end with five blocks for nine markers for the Cargo Movers. Dawn Macandili was also instrumental with 24 digs and seven excellent receptions for F2 Logistics, which committed only four errors in the entire ballgame. After trailing by nine, 10-19, F2 Logistics stepped on the gas and captured the first set at 25-22. Then, it was all Cargo Movers from there as they destroyed the sluggish Lady Realtors on both ends to finish the second set with 25-3 count – the biggest margin ever tallied in the six-year history of this tourney. Sta. Lucia’s three points in the second set came from an ace by Andrea Marzan, a successful challenge by head coach Babes Castillo and an attack from skipper Pam Lastimosa. Andrea Marzan and Roselle Baliton came through with eight and seven points, respectively,  for the Lady Realtors, whose lone win in nine matches came from rookie team Marinerang Pilipina.  .....»»
