Foton claims seventh spot, Cherrylume upsets Cocolife

Foton settled for a seventh place finish after making a short work of University of the Philippines-United Auctioneers Inc. (UP-UAI), 25-14, 25-14, 25-14, Thursday in the Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga (PSL) Invitational Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Jaja Santiago and Dindin Manabat carried the Tornadoes to a strong finish with three straight wins, capped by an impressive win over the Lady Maroons in just 64 minutes. Santiago and Manabat poured 13 and 12 points, respectively, while Bea De Leon chipped in seven hits for Foton, which only had eight errors compared to the 21 miscues of UP-UA. Isa Molde was the lone bright spot for the Lady Maroons with 14 points in a losing effort as her team settled for eight-place. UP-UAI had only one win in the tourney beating Cocolife last Tuesday in the first phase of the classification round. Meanwhile, University of the East-Cherrylume hung on tight to upset the Cocolife in five sets, 22-25, 26-24, 25-19, 21-25, 22-20, and capture the ninth place. The Iron Lady Warriors saved the best for last as they survived five match points before dispatching the Asset Managers in two hours and 12 minutes and settle for the ninth place.  Mary Anne Mendrez provided the clutch blows for UE-Cherrylume denying Cocolife‘s last three match points of the seven deuces.  Down from 19-20, Mendrez nailed the equalizer and Cocolife’s Justine Tiu overcooked her attack giving the Lady Warriors the set point, 21-20, before Mendrez hit the game-winning service ace. Mendrez erupted for 27 points off 24 kills and three service aces, including 28 digs. Juliet Catindig was also impressive with 18 points, including 18 digs and 12 excellent receptions, while Judith Abil and Mariella Gabarda added 13 and 11 markers, respectively. “‘We gave our all in our last game” said UE-Cherrylume head coach Rod Roque after getting a gracious exit in the midseason conference. “When we joined, our only aim is to gain experience, learn from the senior players and adapt their strategy, mindset and communication in this exposure and preparation for UAAP.” The Iron Lady Warriors squandered a 2-1 set lead but did not back down in their neck-and-neck duel in the fifth set with the Asset Managers.  UE-Cherrylume reached match point first with a precarious 14-13 lead but Cocolife forced six more deuces before Mendrez’s heroics sealed the victory. Cocolife crashed down in the last place of the 10-team Invitational conference. Gyra Barroga and Tiu finished with 15 points each and had 19 digs and 13 receptions, respectively. Denice Tan and Marge Tejada were also instrumental with 13 and 10 markers, while libero Denden Lazaro had 34 digs......»»

Inflation hit new over 5-year high of 5.2% in June

Inflation jumped by 5.2 percent year-on-year in June, a new over five-year high, due to sustained elevated prices of food and "sin" products, the government reportedThursday. In a report, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) said the faster inflation last month was "primarily brought about by higher annual rate posted in the heavily-weighted food and non-alcoholic beverages index at 6.1 percent."
