PVL: Perlas Spikers win three in a row

Dzi Gervacio played the hero’s role in the closing stretch of the fifth set to power BanKo to its third straight win in a 19-25, 25-18, 25-21, 23-25, 15-12, escape over BaliPure in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The veteran hitter delivered crucial back-to-back hits to finish off the feisty Water Defenders and improve to a 5-2 win-loss record despite losing Nicole Tiamzon in the fourth set. Tiamzon had to leave late in the fourth to catch her flight to Korea for a UNESCO event. The Perlas Spikers pounced on the opportunity to take the win after BaliPure hitter Grazielle Bombita sent her attack long that broke a 12-12 deadlock. Gervacio then put matters in her own hands and delivered the game-clinching hits.      “’Yung sa ganoong dikdikan na laban those who will make the errors ang matatalo. Ang sabi lang namin basta itaas lang namin ang bola tapos gagawan lang ng paraan even if it’s not a perfect set, a perfect pass, a perfect hit tapos coverage lang especially knowing na si Tiammy umalis siya in the middle of the game,” said Gervacio, who scored 19 points with all but one coming off attacks and added 14 excellent receptions. Kathy Bersola had 15 markers while Tiamzon, who will return on Monday, added 13 points and 12 digs for BanKo, which will take on Motolite next week to end its first round campaign. The Water Defenders fell to a 2-4 slate. Bombita saw her 31 points go down the drain while Menchie Tubiera got 18 markers in a lost cause for BaliPure.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles   .....»»

F2 Logistics weathers Cignal’s challenge, draws first blood

F2 Logistics got a big scare after squandering a two-set lead before hanging tough in the deciding frame to weather a determined Cignal side, 25-22, 26-24, 18-25, 17-25, 15-8, in Game 1 of the 2019 Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Finals on Saturday at the Big Dome. The Cargo Movers drew first blood in the best-of-three series but not after sweating it out in five sets to move a step closer to claiming their first AFC crown since winning it all in 2016. Kalei Mau poured in 27 points with 25 coming off kills and added six excellent receptions for F2 Logistics. Ara Galang and Majoy Baron finished with 11 markers each.    F2 Logistics took advantage of the HD Spikers’ unforced errors and difficulty in controlling the first ball in the deciding frame to open 9-4 gap. “Nu’ng nag-8-4 medyo kontrolado na namin na sitwasyon,” said F2 Logistics head coach Ramil De Jesus, whose wards will try to close the series on Tuesday at the MOA Arena.    The Cargo Movers went up 10-6 before Cignal coach Edgar Barroga burned his two challenges that were unsuccessful as F2 Logistics extended its lead to 12-6. Rachel Anne Daquis stopped the bleeding before Desiree Cheng put the Cargo Movers at match point. Jovelyn Gonzaga saved a match point before F2 Logistics finished off the HD Spikers. “Wala akong ini-expect na madaling laban. Ini-expect talaga namin na hindi madaling laban ang pagdadaanan namin,” said De Jesus. Janine Navarro scored 16 points while Jovelyn Gonzaga had 12 markers for Cignal. Setter Alohi Robins-Hardy tallied 17 excellent sets on top of 11 points. Meanwhile, Sisi Rondina delivered big as she came through with clutch hits to power Petron to a 28-26, 25-27, 25-21, 24-26, 15-12 win over Foton in the bronze-medal match. Rondina, the reigning UAAP Most Valuable Player, scored five of Petron’s last six points for the Blaze Spikers, who were relegated to the consolation round following a pair of semifinal setbacks to Cignal. Down, 5-9, in the fifth set, the Blaze Spikers inched to within two, 9-11, as Rondina put Petron at match point, 14-11. Dindin Santiago-Manabat saved a match point, 12-14, before Rondina sealed the win for Petron. Rondina finished with a game-high 33 points, built on 30 attacks, in the match that took almost three hours to finish. Team captain Ces Molina had 15 points for Petron, while Mika Reyes and Remy Palma each added 11 markers. Dindin Santiago-Manabat led the way for the Tornadoes, with 26 points, while Jaja Santiago chipped in 22, Mina Aganon had 11, Eya Laure scored 11 and Shaya Adorador contributed 10 markers......»»

The Flying Titans opened their campaign on a winning note only to be shot down by PacificTown Army on Wednesday in a record-setting match that saw ChocoMucho walk away with a disappointing result.

PVL: Cool Smashers manhandle Red Spikers, win third in a row

Still flawless. Defending champion Creamline annihilated hapless newcomer Chef’s Classics, 25-12, 25-5, 25-15, on Sunday to remain unscathed in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Alyssa Valdez showed her steady service game in a long trip at the service line while Jema Galanza had a field day picking her attacks against the Red Spikers' brittle defense to power the Cool Smashers to their third straight victory in as many games without dropping a single set. The Creamline kept a tight hold of the solo lead.   Valdez had 16 points off 8-of-12 attacks, seven aces and a kill block for the Cool Smashers, who finished the game in just 66 minutes. Galanza had 11 markers with all but one off spikes and added four excellent receptions while Michele Gumabao and Celine Domingo posted 10 and seven points, respectively, while combining for seven of Creamline's 11 kill blocks.   “In today’s game, this is the first game din na nakalaban namin Chef’s Classics yung mystery on how to play against them nandoon kami,” said Valdez. “Kasi every time, parang most of the teams na nakalaban namin laging first game nila except Chef’s Classics kasi they had a game yesterday.” “Mas nakapag-aral din kami at mas napaghandaan namin, napanood din namin game nila kahapon so mentally we’re also prepared,” she added. “Nangibabaw mental toughness na tapusin yung game.” Creamline head coach Tai Bundit had the luxury of trying new rotations as the Cool Smashers displayed a volleyball clinic in their short work of Chef’s Classics. Creamline cruised in the third frame much like in their emphatic demolition of the newbie squad in the first two sets. The Cool Smashers started their beat down early with Valdez having a long stay at the service line as Creamline built a 16-1 separation before Jingay Bangad stopped the Red Spikers’ bleeding with a hit. Chef’s Classics was able to reach double-figure output before Galanza closed the frame with a kill block       Valdez continued her long stay at the service line in the second frame, this time serving 20 times in a row as the Cool Smashers opened a 19-1 gap before Nieza Viray gave the Red Spikers a respite with a tip. Chef’s Classics scored two attacks, a kill block and two free points off Creamline’s errors in the Red Spikers’ forgettable second set outing.     Chef’s Classics absorbed its second straight defeat after suffering a sweep at the hands of Motolite on Saturday. Viray scored seven points while Bangad got five markers for the Red Spikers.    --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

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.

"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.
