Amid scorching heat, Castillo gives BaliPure time to recover before Pocari match

As the summer heat continues to hit fever pitch, so does the race in the Premier Volleyball League. BaliPure is locked in a three-way tie with Creamline and PayMaya atop the standings of the Reinforced Conference and head coach Babes Castillo plans an unorthodox way of preparing his team for its Sunday's game. Castillo is well aware of the summer temperatures in Metro Manila and he plans to rest his players before their match against Pocari Sweat to avoid overworking them under temperatures that constantly reach the high 30s. "I need to make them rest," said Castillo Wednesday at Filoil Flying V Centre after their 25-22, 25-22, 22-25, 32-30 win over BanKo Perlas.

Cargo Movers draw first blood in Invitational Finals

F2 Logistics showed nerves of steel in the cliffhanger fifth set to outlast archrival Petron, 18-25, 25-23, 20-25, 29-27, 16-14, Thursday in Game 1 of the best-of-three Philippine Superliga Invitational Conference Finals at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Majoy Baron delivered the crushing blows to seal the Cargo Movers’ victory that pushed them closer to their third title. With the Blaze Spikers threatening to steal the match after erasing a 14-12 deficit in a thrilling rally to force a deuce, Baron stepped up and played the hero’s role with a crucial running attack to give the lead back to F2 Logistics. Baron then buried the dagger to the hearts of Petron and its faithful that trooped the arena with a service winner that went past Blaze Spikers Aiza Maizo-Pontillas and libero Buding Duremdes. Baron finished with 15 points highlighted by four blocks including the denial against Petron’s fireball Sisi Rondina in the extended fourth set that forced the decider. The UAAP Season 79 MVP had eight attacks and three aces. “Well ah, sabi ko nga sa inyo, ‘yung team ng Petron mahirap mahanapan ng butas kasi madalang ‘yung unforced errors hindi basta-basta dumadating. Unlike noong mga first set namin and third set sobrang ang daming unforced errors lalo na ‘yung service and isang naging factor siguro medyo nahirapan kaming pumasa noong first set and third set,” said F2 Logistics coach Ramil de Jesus, who rued his squad’s 39 errors. Ara Galang led F2 Logistics’ offense with 18 points built on 13 attacks while Aby Marano scored nine of her 10 points on kills for the Cargo Movers, who are looking to end the series on Saturday at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.    F2 Logistics took control of the fifth set after rallying from a 7-6 deficit to take a 10-7 lead. The Cargo Movers moved at match point, 14-12, only to see Petron tie it after Desiree Cheng’s service error and a kill block by Blaze Spiker setter Rhea Dimaculangan. Then, Baron took over. Mika Reyes and Bernadeth Pons posted 14 points each, Maizo-Pontillas had 13 while Rondina and Ces Molina got 12 apiece for Petron, who gave away 12 points to the Cargo Movers from the service line.           --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Lady Warriors near bronze medal finish

Pocari Sweat-Air Force displayed great teamwork in the absence of injured local hitter Myla Pablo to eke out a rousing come-from-behind, 25-22, 17-25, 16-25, 26-24, 15-11, win over BanKo to inch closer to a bronze medal finish in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference Sunday at the MOA Arena. The Lady Warriors drew first blood in best-of-three battle for third behind the superb game of American import Maddie Palmer. Palmer finished with 24 points built on 22 attacks and a pair of aces for Pocari Sweat, which played without Pablo after the open spiker was ruled out for the rest of the conference because of a lower back injury she sustained in the Game 3 semis loss of the dethroned Lady Warriors against Creamline. Game 2 is on Wednesday at the same venue. “We didn’t have our good attitude in the first couple of sets, we played like we’re gonna lose,” said Palmer, who had 17 digs and 10 excellent receptions. “The change is that we played we wanted to win instead of playing not to lose, it’s just a different mindset and I think that was our improvement.” American Ari Love had 17 markers while Del Palomata fimished with 13 markers for the Lady Warriors. Elaine Kasilag punched in eight points including the game-clinching tip to seal the one-hour, 47-minute win.  Pocari Sweat recovered from an 1-2 match deficit and held a 9-5 lead in the deciding frame. The Perlas Spikers closed the gap, 10-9, but the Lady Warriors countered with a 5-2 scoring spurt capped by Kasilag's winner off a misreception. American Kia Bright uncorked 30 attacks in her 33-point performance while Thai import Jutarat Montripila and Amy Ahomiro posted 17 and 14 markers, respectively, for BanKo.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Petro Gazz ignites quarters streak at expense of BaliPure

Petro Gazz is nothing but confident that it is doing better and better just as the competition gets hotter and hotter in the quarterfinals of the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference Season 2. It’s hard to argue with the Angels following a straight sets shellacking of BaliPure-National University, 25-23, 25-18, and 25-14 on Saturday at the Filoil Flying Centre. “Good yung chances ng team. Hopefully, magtuloy-tuloy,” head coach Jerry Yee told reporters after his girls won for the second time in a row following a loss to open the round robin quarterfinals. “Sa umpisa, ‘di pa magkakakilala e, pero ngayon, unti-unti, nagkakakilala na.” Indeed, Petro Gazz counted four players who contributed at least seven points led by Ukranian reinforcement Anastasiia Trach who had 17 points. Olena Lymareva-Flink, another Ukranian, and Cherry Nunag contributed eight points each and Paneng Mercado also chipped in seven markers. After handling the Water Defenders easy in the first two sets, the Angels found themselves chasing down a 4-7 deficit in the third. The balanced attack returned for them following the first technical timeout in the set, however, and they uncorked an 18-4 burst that put them up, all of a sudden, 22-11. That run only took the fight out of young BaliPure-NU and the Angels soared to a share of second in the standings at 2-1. Yee and his girls try for a third straight win when they take on Iriga-Navy next. For the Water Defenders, Janisa Johnson led the way with 14 points points. She was their lone player in double-digits as fellow import Alexis Matthews only had six markers to her name. Their return to the win column would have to come at the expense of defending champion Pocari Sweat-Philippine Air Force. Alongside Petro Gazz and BaliPure-NU, disputing the last two spots in the semifinals are BanKo-Perlas, Iriga-Navy, Pocari Sweat-Air Force, and Tacloban The top two finishers in the round robin quarterfinals will move on to the next round. Already there are Creamline and PayMaya who secured the top spots in the Final Four after their respective impressive runs in the preliminary round. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
