Petron stays unscathed, extends win streak to six

Petron tightened its grip of the top spot in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Tuesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Blaze Spikers made short work of struggling Sta. Lucia, 25-9, 25-12, 25-6,  to remain on top of the heap. Mika Reyes finished with a game-high 11 points, including five aces while Ging Balse-Pabayo added 10 markers for the Blaze Spikers, who captured their sixth win in as many games. Petron had a dominant performance as it registered twice as much Sta. Lucia’s attacks (37-15) and blocks (5-0) while capitalizing on the Lady Realtors’ poor reception with 12 aces. Meanwhile, veteran Mina Aganon re-asserted her dominance as she towed the Tornadoes back to the winning track after dominating Cocolife, 25-23, 26-28, 25-21, 25-19. The Tornadoes moved to solo second spot with a 5-1 win-loss card. Foton coach Aaron Valdez said their previous loss to F2 Logistics fueled them to work harder and regain their bearings. “I think our loss to F2 Logistics made us better as a team,” said Velez, who took the helm from Rommel Abella in the off-season. “Despite the loss, the team still radiated positive energy and I did not look at it (loss) as a setback.” He added that it was a wakeup call that gave them a chance to identify their weaknesses, especially now that towering Jaja Santiago and Dindin Manabat are seeing action in the prestigious V. Premier League in Japan. “It served as a wake up call for the team for us to improve on our weaknesses,” he added. “I’m happy that my players responded although they were hesitant at first, it’s normal, but I’m really glad that they exerted effort rather than nothing.” Carla Sandoval also had 18 points while playmaker Gyzelle Sy registered 24 excellent sets for Foton in a match that lasted for two hours and 15 minutes. Filipino-American spiker Kalei Mau led the way with 21 points, 16 digs and six excellent receptions for the Asset Managers, who absorbed their fifth loss in six matches. In the night cap, Cignal walloped its sister-team Smart, 25-20, 25-20, 25-20, for a 4-3 slate. Rachel Anne Daquis and Mylene Paat registered 15 points each and combined for 24 of the HD Spikers' 41 attack points. The Giga Hitters dropped to 2-4 mark......»»

PBA: Coach Leo sees no reason why Beermen should be ashamed after early exit

The season is over for the dynastic San Miguel Beermen.  Just like last year, they once again have a quarterfinals exit in the Governors' Cup, this time at the hands of the Alaska Aces, who have never won against coach Leo Austria until now. Call it an underwhelming season, but the reality is they're still a good team. MVP frontrunner June Mar Fajardo was unavailable for the majority of the final conference, but returned in time to virtually secure his fifth straight MVP award, the most in history.  For Austria, there's no crying over spilled milk, calling the 2017-18 PBA campaign a rousing success.  "You win some, you lose some. But I’m still proud of the team. Kasi in the last 4 years, 12 conferences, we’ve been in the Finals 7 times, and won 6 championships. I think we have nothing to be ashamed of." The Beermen dipped to as low as a 2-4 record this season and AZ Reid to injury, before enlisting the services of spitfire scorer Kevin Murphy and getting import-like performances from #1 Christian Standhardinger to gather themselves and end up with a sixth-place finish. Snipers Marcio Lassiter and Alex Cabagnot, along with Standhardinger were called for Gilas duty, and that left the team missing key players in some parts of the conference.  The four-time PBA Coach of the Year is not blaming that, but said that it had played a part in their preparation moving forward. "Well, I think everybody’s expecting us that we’ll get into the next round. We failed to do it. Congratulations to Alaska. They are deserving to win this quarterfinals." Now that the season is over, the team will be zeroing in on defending the Philippine Cup title, gunning for their fifth straight plum next season. Before that, five of coach Leo's players will be suiting up the nation's tricolors, namely Lassiter, Cabagnot, Standhardinger, Fajardo, and Arwind Santos. Those five will practice for the squad, and will fight for the coveted 12 slots.  Also in their minds for next year is how to improve through the draft. "We will try to improve our team dahil nowadays, every team in the PBA keeps on improving and improving and we could not be overconfident dahil alam natin na a lot of people are telling us, the All-Filipino is our conference."   "Of course, those four All Filipino championships are already in the past." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»

Cargo pre-shipment inspection could thwart drug smuggling –Atienza

  Buhay Rep. Lito Atienza urged President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday to order the compulsory pre-shipment inspection (PSI) of all containerized imports to prevent the large-scale smuggling of illegal drugs into the country.   Atienza renewed his call for the mandatory PSI after the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) said around P11 billion worth of "shabu" slipped past the Bureau of Customs (BOC) in July.
