Cargo Movers add more woes to reeling Lady Realtors

Games Thursday: (FilOil Flying V Centre) 4:15 p.m. –- Iriga City vs. Generika-Ayala 7:00 p.m. –- UST vs. Petron   F2 Logistics recovered from a four-point deficit late in the third set to complete a 25-16, 25-23, 25-23 sweep of listless Sta. Lucia Tuesday for the Cargo Movers’ second straight win in the 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. American import Kennedy Bryan posted 13 points, all from attacks, while Venezuelan reinforcement unleashed 12 markers anchored on 10 attacks as F2 Logistics scored back-to-back victories after a four-set romp of erstwhile unbeaten Petron Saturday in Bacolod City. “Itong Sta. Lucia hindi madaling kalaban. Siguro naunahan lang namin or matter of breaks lang siguro,” said F2 Logistics coach Ramil De Jesus. “Hindi biro ‘pag nasa harap mo na ‘yung mga imports then three imports sila actually four pa nga andyan pa ‘yung (Mar-Jana) Phillips. So hindi madaling kalaban, hindi mo pwedeng biru biruin so talagang disiplina dapat pagdating sa loob ng court.” The Cargo Movers controlled the opening set but needed to mount a rally from 20-22 down in the closing stretch of the second frame. F2 Logistics again fell behind 18-22 in the third set before sparking a closing 7-1 rally. Perez tied the frame at 22 after a kill block on Rialen Sante followed by an attack error by Lady Realtors’ Ukranian import Bohdana Anisova that gave the Cargo Movers a one-point lead. Desiree Cheng sent his service short in the next play but Canadian Marisa Field smashed his serve straight to the net as F2 Logistics took match point, 24-23. Kim Dy blocked Anisova to seal the win in the 88-minute duel.  Anisova scored 14 points while Pam Lastimosa and Field combined for 15 markers for the Lady Realtors.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Also-ran Perpetual pulls off shocker on defending champ Malayan

strong>STANDINGS /strong> br /> Malayan 12-3 br /> CSB-LSGH 11-5 br /> San Beda 10-5 br /> Letran 9-6 br /> San Sebastian 8-6 br /> Arellano 7-8 br /> LPU 7-8 br /> JRU 5-10 br /> Perpetual 5-10 br /> EAC 1-14 Malayan High School of Science is well on top of the six-squad mixup below them in the NCAA 93 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Still, the defending champions cannot afford to lose some separation. That’s just what happened on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, however, as the Red Robins were at the wrong end of an upset by University of Perpetual Help, 64-69. Esvin Inliwan and Errol Bongay combined for 13 points in the decisive final frame all while standing at the forefront of a defense that suffocated their opponents in the same timeframe. Inliwan and Bongay wound up with 17 and 16 points, respectively, while Jielo Razon contributed 14 points, nine rebounds, three assists, and three steals in inarguably their biggest win of the season. The upset improves the Junior Altas’ standing to 5-10, but doesn’t do much in the playoff hunt as they have long been eliminated. Still, they played their part to perfection, ruining the win run of Malayan which now falls to 12-3. Clint Escamis was the lone bright spot for them with 22 points, five rebounds, and four assists. Without the injured Will Gozum, however, they had a hard time stopping the attack fronted by physical players like Inliwan and Bongay. They remain at the top spot, but have 11-5 College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills and 10-5 San Beda High School creeping up behind them. BOX SCORES SECOND GAME PERPETUAL 69 – Inliwan 17, Bongay 16, Razon 14, Rocero 4, Gallano 4, Umali 4, Cuevas 3, Siegue 3, De Leon 2, Maneze 2, Duka 0, Sta.
