2019 ASEAN Grand Prix: Philippines aims for silver medal finish

STA. ROSA, Laguna --- A full force Philippine national team marches into battle against Indonesia with its sights focused on a possible silver medal finish in the ASEAN Grand Prix second leg on Sunday. The Nationals will have a complete line-up with top hitter Alyssa Valdez, setter Jia Morado, Maddie Madayag and Jovelyn Gonzaga returning from their club duties in a rematch with the Indonesians at 5:0 p.m. at the Sta. Rosa Multi-purpose Gym here. The game is available on iWant and via livestream. Both teams sport 1-1 win-loss cards heading into the final playdate of the four-nation tournament’s stop in the Philippines. The Indonesians defeated the Filipinas in five sets two weeks ago in the first leg in Nakhon Ratchasima. “Well, pag-aaralan namin ‘yung laro nila,” said PHI team captain Aby Marano. “Siyempre last leg natalo kami in five sets. Definitely, we will adjust kung ano yung mga lapses namin dun. Pag-iigihan namin at siguro ie-elevate pa namin yung performance namin.” The Nationals absorbed a 12-25, 16-25 10-25, defeat at the hands of powerhouse Thailand with only 10 players on deck. Despite the loss, Marano remains hopeful that the valuable lessons they learned playing Thailand will help them surpass their bronze medal finish last leg. “Sigurado ako itong nangyari sa amin against Thailand, magiging motivation to para bukas,” said Marano. “Bawiin namin kung ano yung naging resulta ngayon and at the same time gusto namin i-aim yung silver.” “Kasi kung nagkaron nga tayo ng chance na magka-bronze, ibig sabihin possible din pala na makakuha tayo ng mas mataas pa dun,” added the very optimistic skipper. “At tatrabahuhin namin yun bukas for sure.” The Thais, on the other hand, are looking for a second straight crown in its showdown with winless Vietnam at 3:00 p.m.      --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

2019 ASEAN Grand Prix: Philippines takes on powerhouse Thailand

STA. ROSA, Laguna -- Facing powerhouse Thailand is already a big challenge for the Philippines. Taking on the Thais without four key players makes it even tougher. But the Filipinas are ready to clash with the Thais despite great odds stacked against them Saturday in the ASEAN Grand Prix second leg at the Sta. Rosa Multi-purpose Gym here.   “Challenging talaga kasi you know very well kung paano maglaro yung Thailand,” said team captain Aby Marano of their 5:00 p.m. clash. The match is available on iWant and via livestream. The Philippines opened its campaign on a high note after dismantling Vietnam in straight sets Friday. But the Nationals will be missing the services of top hitter Alyssa Valdez, who debuted with 14 points, Maddie Madayag, starting setter Jia Morado and Jovelyn Gonzaga because of club commitments in Iloilo. The Pinays won a set over the Thais in their first leg encounter in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand ruled by the host team.    “Ngayon even challenging because we don’t have Kalei (Mau), Alohi (Robins-Hardy) and Jia, Maddie, Alyssa and ate Jovs as well so ngayon ang mangyayari yung mga bata natin tas kami maiiwan,” said Marano. Backup setter Jasmine Nabor, who joined the team just last Monday, will start for Morado. Roselyn Doria is expected to step up for Madayag while Grethcel Soltones could take the spot of Valdez and young blood Eya Laure might take the spot of Gonzaga. Thailand is also coming off a straight sets win over Indonesia in a rematch of their first leg gold medal match.     ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Volleyball community unites for Jovelyn Gonzaga’s nephew

National team hitter Jovelyn Gonzaga was thankful for the overwhelming support from fellow volleyball players and volleyball fans for her nephew who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. The local volleyball community united to extend financial help for Gonzaga’s three-year old nephew Calix Vander or CV.      “Sobrang overwhelming ng volleyball community,” said the opposite hitter on Thursday during the welcome dinner for the ASEAN Grand Prix second leg in Crimson Hotel in Alabang. “Ang dami nga nagme-message na ganito lang ang maitutulong ko. Walang konting tulong, pag pinagsama-sama ‘yun napakalaking bagay. And prayers, sabi ko prayers niyo napakalaking bagay na ‘yun para sa pamangkin ko.” Hi VB Community! We are organizing another jersey auction for ate @JOVZKIE08 and her nephew, Calix Vander, who's been recently diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. This auction will be participated in by both PSL and PVL players. Hope we can all support this cause. ????????? pic.twitter.com/eE8eyOAeKW — Carmela Tunay (@carmelaloo08) October 3, 2019 Gonzaga said that CV had undergone numerous check-ups the past month and was hospitalized for two weeks before the doctors found out that it was leukemia. “Almost more than a month na ‘yung check-ups niya tapos na-hospital na rin siya for more than two weeks, muntik na nga akong hindi sumama ng Thailand (ASEAN Grand Prix first leg) kasi gusto ko siyang tutukan pero hindi pwede kasi may commitment ako kata tuluy-tuloy ang monitor ko sa kanya,” said Gonzaga. “At that time ang dami niyang test eh,” continued the enlisted Army personnel. “Kasi unang finding sa kanya, may namuong bukol sa heart niya pero doon na na-find out na may problema siya sa dugo. So ang daming test, bone marrow test, biopsy and all. Hanggang sa nalaman na may leukemia.” It was her friends Carmela Tunay of Petron and Cignal teammate Rachel Anne Daquis who started a fund-raising campaign for CV.    “Thankful ako kasi that time mga two weeks pa lang na-admit si CV, nag-message na si Mela sa akin,” said Gonzaga. “Sobrang blessing ni Mela at ni ate Rachel Daquis.” “Actually sila talaga ‘yung nagri-reach out sa akin na, ‘ate, if ever gusto mong magpa-auction’ kasi dati nagpa-acution na rin siya para kay Ian Larriba,” Gonzaga added. “So sabi ko sa kanya, ‘sige beh lapitan kita’ kasi that time wala pang final confirmation sa sakit ng pamangkin ko eh.’” Daquis, according to Gonzaga, has been helping her since CV got sick. “Si ate Rachel naman, mula noong nagkasakit si CV, sobrang nagnaga-update na siya sa akin na kung ano ang matutulong niya, gagawa daw siya ng videos para humingi ng tulong sa mga tao,” said Gonzaga. “And ngayong araw nga nagbigay na ako ng go signal kasi magsa-start na ‘yung cycle ng chemo. Sobrang laki pala ng gagastusin, every cycle umaabot na siya ng 100k. Maliban sa chemo madami pa siyang tests kasi mino-monitor ang progress niya.” Gonzaga said that her brother, CV’s father, will open a bank account on Friday where people can deposit their donations and will post the details on her social media account......»»

Nationals brace for tough rematch against Vietnam

The Philippine national women’s volleyball team hopes to capitalize on its home court advantage and with Vietnam missing the services of its main scorer as the second leg of the ASEAN Grand Prix kicks off Friday at the Sta. Rosa Multi-purpose Sports Complex in Laguna. Carrying the momentum of its bronze medal finish in the first leg of the four-nation tournament in Nakhon Ratchasima in Thailand, the Filipinas will try to duplicate its conquest of the Vietnamese in their scheduled 3:00 p.m. showdown. The match will be available via iWant and livestream (Philippines only). Livestream abroad is available via TFC.tv. Team captain Aby Marano sees the support of the home crowd as a big morale boost for the squad seeking to surpass its finish in the opening leg.  “Oo, kasi ang sarap maglaro na may sumisigaw sa’yo eh. Iba kasi dun sa Thailand kaunti lang ang Pilipino. Iba kasi yung may sumisigaw, tinatawag ang pangalan mo kasi nakaka-add ng confidence and morale yun,” said Marano. The Nationals are also looking to exploit the absence Vietnamese top hitter Thi Thanh Thuy Tran, who is currently training with her club in the Japan V. Premier League, though the Filipinas themselves lost two key players.      “Sa tingin ko malaking bagay din yun pero kasi nawalan din kami ng players like Alohi (Robins-Hardy) and Kalei (Mau). For sure another challenging match for us,” Marano said. “We’re not taking it as wala si T4 magiging complacent kami, we’re gonna take it na mas ma-inspire kami to play our A-game.” Vietnam coach Tuan Kiet Nguyen knows that their rematch against the Philippines will be tougher.     “The Philippine team now improved a lot. We lost the match in Thailand two weeks ago, but in this tournament, we're still not confident because one of our players cannot play here,” he said. Replacing Mau, who suffered an Achilles injury, and Robins-Hardy, who had trouble securing a Philippine passport, are Grethcel Soltones and Jasmine Nabor.     Alyssa Valdez, who skipped the Thailand edition because of an ankle injury, will make her debut for the Nationals in the tournament that serves as test event for the country’s hosting of the 30th Southeast Asian Games. First leg Best Middle Blocker award winner Majoy Baron, skipper Aby Marano, Ces Molina, Mylene Paat, Roselyn Doria, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, Kath Arado and Dawn Macandili are back for another tour of duty. Also making their return are Maddie Madayag, setter Jia Morado, Eya Laure and Jovelyn Gonzaga.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Lagari na lang – Eya Laure on double duty Sunday

Eya Laure braces for a long Sunday as the University of Sto. Tomas star and national women’s volleyball team member is set for double duty that will take her from a battle in San Juan to an encounter in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. “Lagari nalang din kasi siyempre, dalawa e,” said Laure, who will wear the Tigresses jersey in the morning before donning the Nationals’ tri-colors in the afternoon.   The UAAP Season 81 Rookie of the Year will banner the Tigresses in their bid to secure a for a Finals spot in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Collegiate Conference in a sudden death against Ateneo de Manila University. Game 3 of the semis series is scheduled at 9:00 a.m. at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.      Scheduled to start at 5:00 p.m. on the same day is the Nationals’ home stand against Indonesia in the second leg of the ASEAN Grand Prix in Sta. Rosa Multi-purpose Gym in Laguna. Despite the hectic and exhausting schedule which will likely include dreadful traffic congestion from San Juan to Laguna, Laure is more than willing to serve her school and the country.     “Hindi mo naman kasi pwedeng bitawan 'yung dalawa e, kumbaga si coach (Kungfu Reyes) din 'yung makakapagsabi. Ako naman, ire-ready ko lang ulit,” she said. Laure said that she just wants to take advantage of the opportunities given to her. “Sabi din naman sa akin ni Coach Kungfu yun na ang opportunity na ibinibigay sa akin wag ko sayangin. Lagi kong ipakita ang capability ko as a player kumbaga every day nagti-training tapos grabe rin ang pinagdadaanan,” said Laure. Laure will suit up for the Nationals for the second time after seeing action in the opening leg of the four-nation tournament in Thailand two weeks ago. “After nito may UAAP pa, may Foton, kumbaga sama-sama tapos may aral pa. Minsan lang din kasi dumating ito sa akin. Kapag nagkaroon ng opportunity, iga-grab ko talaga ang ibibigay ng best ko in any way na pwede akong makatulong sa national team, sa UST and sa club team ko,” she added. The Nationals will miss the services of setter Jia Morado, Alyssa Valdez, Maddie Madayag and Jovelyn on Gonzaga on Saturday because of their club duties when the Filipinas face powerhouse Thailand. With just Jasmine Nabor available as setter, Laure, who won a Best Setter award back in high school, is ready to work as backup playmaker, if necessary.    “Ako naman parang sa UST lang. Kahit anong ibigay sa aking posisyon ready ako,” she said. “Kung anong role ang ibigay sa akin go lang ng go.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Ailing Valdez, Morado uncertain for ASEAN Grand Prix

Creamline’s Alyssa Valdez and setter Jia Morado’s availability for the national women’s volleyball team’s participation in the second leg of the ASEAN Grand Prix remains uncertain. With less than a week before the country’s hosting of the regional tournament set on October 4 to 6 in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, the duo as well as three other players currently playing in the ongoing Premier Volleyball League Season 3 might skip the Grand Prix for various reasons. From injury woes, schedule conflicts to teeth extractions, the Nationals could be staring at only 10 players available from its 15-woman core. For one, the PVL schedule coincides with the staging of the ASEAN Grand Prix. Creamline is due to play sister-team ChocoMucho bannered by another national team member in Maddie Madayag on Saturday in Iloilo City while opposite hitter Jovelyn Gonzaga of PacificTown Army also has a game that day against PetroGazz in the Open Conference. If necessary, Eya Laure of University of Sto. Tomas could play in do-or-die semifinals Game 3 against Ateneo de Manila University in the Collegiate Conference.     “I think as of now we’re instructed that we’re also playing in Iloilo sa team,” said Valdez. She explained that they will follow their management’s decision on the matter.   “I guess may pinag-uusapan po sila,” she said. “We’re here to follow din naman those instructions. As of now kung ano ang instructions, sila ang may desisyon.” Valdez, who is still recovering from a right foot injury, could miss the AGP for the second straight time. The many-time national team member skipped the first leg, where the Nationals brought home a bronze medal, after sustaining a foot injury just days before their flight to Thailand.   As for Morado, the playmaker might need more time to recover after undergoing teeth extraction following her return from a tour of duty last week. “Actually before national team pa lang medyo hindi na nya kaya [ang pain] because four teeth ang tinanggal sa kanya so she had to wait. Pagbalik tinaggal, apat,” explained Morado’s Creamline teammate Michele Gumabao. “So ngayon medyo recovering pa siya kasi hindi pwedeng igalaw yun eh. Hindi rin pwede i-practice kasi bubuka so she has to fully heal before she can play.” With all these availability issue, head coach Shaq Delos Santos and Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. will be scrambling to convince the clubs to loan their players if not look for replacements.      “Chinecheck pa namin kasi yung magiging line-up namin dahil meron kaming kailangan iconsider and dapat ayusin so we don’t know yet kung ano yung possible na mangyayari,” Delos Santos said. But the mentor assured the Nationals will be ready for their home stand. “But of course, kahit ano mangyari talagang ready yung team and palaban lahat yan,” he said.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Lady Troopers try to reignite win streak

PacificTown Army started the second round on a high note and the Lady Troopers hope to sustain that momentum when they take on slumping BaliPure on Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the Malolos Sports and Convention Center in Bulacan. Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream.

On the other hand, BaliPure tries to stop a five-game bleeding behind the troika of Grazielle Bombita, Menchie Tubiera and Shirley Salamagos. The Water Defenders suffered a straight sets beating at the hands of unbeaten defending champion Creamline last Wednesday to fall to a 2-8 mark.     ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Nationals face Indonesia in ASEAN Grand Prix opener

National team head coach Shaq Delos Santos has high hopes for his squad as it marches into action against Indonesia in the inaugural ASEAN Grand Prix on Friday at the Terminal 21 Mall in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand. Despite only a couple of weeks of preparation and missing a key player, the mentor believes that his team is ready to take on the Indonesians in their scheduled 3:00 p.m. match (Manila time). The Filipinas are coming off a 12-day training camp in Bangkok that saw the squad play a series of tune-up games including the Thai national team and Japan V. Premier League club Toraay Arrows. “We learned a lot from the training camp, every match we felt that we are getting better,” said Delos Santos, whose squad is also preparing for the 30th Southeast Asian Games in Manila in November. “Conditioning-wise and skills-wise we are good.” The Nationals have been training twice a day during the training camp and have been working on their chemistry but Delos Santos admits that the squad might be at a disadvantage especially with the team just playing together for a short time. Only 10 players from the 14-woman squad have completed the training camp with Maddie Madayag, setter Jia Morado, Jovelyn Gonzaga and Eya Laure joining the squad just last Sunday as they are all playing in the ongoing Premier Volleyball League. Top hitter and veteran national team member Alyssa Valdez skipped the training and the tournament to rest after injuring her right ankle just days before her scheduled flight to Thailand. “So we need to make quick adjustments,” said Delos Santos. “But these are mostly veteran players they can make do with what’s given. We will do our best under the circumstance.” Carrying the country’s fight are Kalei Mau, Ces Molina, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, Mylene Paat, team captain Aby Marano, Majoy Baron, Roselyn Doria, Madayag, Laure, Gonzaga, liberos Dawn Macandili and Kath Arado and setters Morado and Alohi Robins-Hardy. The Nationals will face Thailand on Saturday and Vietnam on Sunday. The Philippines will host the second leg of the Grand Prix on Oct. 4-6 in Sta. Rosa, Laguna......»»
