Ateneo rises

Ateneo-Motolite may have a problem with slow starts, but it certainly doesn't have an issue finishing strong. Ateneo again proved its endgame strength after besting hard-fighting Adamson-Akari, 17-25, 25-23, 25-20, 21-25, 15-12, Sunday night to register its second straight win in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference at Filoil Flying V Centre. The Lady Eagles were expected to cruise against the winless Lady Falcons. Instead the Lady Eagles encountered a team desperate to score its first win, dragging Ateneo to a five-set thriller that lasted for two hours and 45 minutes. "In the end it was all heart," said Kat Tolentino who fired 28 points for Ateneo, including 20 att...Keep on reading: Ateneo rises.....»»

Tolentino says ‘no intention to hurt’ Huang after 2nd straight dq foul

Arvin Tolentino is known more for his sweet-shooting and his vital role as a scorer and floor spacer for Far Eastern University. Tolentino, however, is making a bad account of himself lately with consecutive disqualifying fouls in the Tamaraws' games against Adamson and University of Santo Tomas. The forward was slapped with his second disqualifying foul of the season on Sunday when he hit UST forward Zach Huang in the cheek late in the fourth quarter in 78-70 loss to the Growling Tigers.

Magnolia overcomes late Alaska run, stays on top

Magnolia turned to their guards to hold off a late run by Alaska, 83-73, and stay in first place in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup Sunday night at Smart Araneta Coliseum. Romeo Travis was solid anew with team-bests of 19 points and 17 rebounds but it was the guard play of Jio Jalalon, Paul Lee and Mark Barroca that proved crucial for the Hotshots amid the fiery fightback by the Aces. "Our guards have been playing really well the last few games and again Jio stepped up, Mark played good defense against Banchero and Paul on offense," said Magnolia head coach Chito Victolero after his squad improved to 7-1. Jalalon followed up his triple-double performance with 18 points, nine rebounds an...Keep on reading: Magnolia overcomes late Alaska run, stays on top.....»»

PVL: Lady Eagles weather Lady Falcons upset scare for back-to-back wins

Ateneo-Motolite survived an upset scare from a very game Adamson-Akari, 17-25, 25-23, 25-20, 21-25, 15-12, on Sunday to score back-to-back wins in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Kat Tolentino stepped up big time in the deciding set, scoring six points in the frame to help the Lady Eagles improve to 4-1 win-loss record at second spot behind unbeaten BanKo (5-0). Tolentino scattered 28 points off 20 spikes, five kill blocks and three service aces while Jules Samonte added 11 markers off the bench for Ateneo-Motolite. Maddie Madayag and Ponggay Gaston chipped in nine points each for the Lady Eagles' second win in back-to-back weekend schedule after taking down Iriga-Navy in straight sets Saturday.   The incoming third year hitter scored five of Ateneo-Motolite's first nine points as the Lady Eagles built a 9-3 advantage. Behind Bernadette Flora and Ceasa Pinar's heroics, Adamson-Akari closed the gap, 9-8.  Ateneo-Motolite again went ahead, 13-11, before Krich Macaslang scored a hit to push the Lady Falcons within one, 13-12. Tolentino put the Lady Eagles at match point before Vanessa Gandler sealed the win with a cross court hit.    “Every game this is our problem because siguro new system, we always start slow for the past few games we really start slow and we try to fix that problem,” said Ateneo-Motolite head coach Oliver Almadro, who commended the Lady Falcons’ floor defense. “I thank the Lord that we won today, we won yesterday,” he added. “But I’m not happy with what we’ve shown today. It’s because, I guess, we’re getting used to playing pa sa back-to-back (schedule) so siguro being a student and an athlete hindi pa sanay doon sa big games na magkasunod. But we have to be used to it and this is a learning experience for us and we really just have to maximize our strength and really believing kung ano ang ginagawa namin.” The Lady Falcons, who showed superb floor defense but were plagued with terrible errors, dropped their sixth game in as many outings tied with the Lady Oragons. Adamson was in control of the second set, 10-5, but committed 11 of the frame's 13 errors the rest of the way as the Lady Falcons giave Ateneo-Motolite a chance to steal the set and tie the match.  The Lady Eagles again came back from a 14-15 deficit with a 10-4 run capped by an attack error by Flora for a 24-19 lead. Ateneo-Motolite committed a net touch in the next play before Adamson-Akari surrendered the set on another miscue by Flora.         Flora finished with 25 points on 20 kills, three kill blocks and a pair of aces while adding 24 digs and eight excellent receptions. Chiara Permentilla and Gracelchen Ave scored 15 and 12 markers, respectively, for Adamson.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles      .....»»

PBA: Durham proud of Meralco s effort in win over NLEX

Meralco has made it to two straight PBA Governors' Cup Finals, but a third straight trip to the title round is probably not in the mind of the Bolts right now. Well for one, Meralco is barely avoiding elimination in the season-ending joust. The Bolts arrested a six-game slide Sunday by beating NLEX and Meralco currently only has a 2-6 mark. They are out of the playoff picture for the moment. With three games left, the Bolts are focused on just staying alive than trying to make a third straight Finals appearance. "We can't really think about playoffs right now," import Allen Durham said. "We just gotta think about getting better, take one game at a time. When we think too far ahead, that's when mistakes happen, your overlook the team, and everything falls from there," he added. Durham, the reigning two-time Best Import, was huge in Meralco staying alive Sunday. He finished with 36 points, 18 rebounds, and seven assists for Meralco. More importantly, Durham's big block on Juanmi Tiongson as time expired preserved Meralco's three-point victory. "It feels great. Even though we won we still didn't play perfect but I'm proud of our guys, they didn't give up. I think we're down 10 or 9 pts with six minutes, but we just showed relentlessness and we just kept fighting," Durham said. "That's what happens when you keep fighting for the whole 48 minutes," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Dutch humiliate Germany in Nations League, Gibraltar wins

By The Associated Press Germany's UEFA Nations League campaign took a humiliating blow after a 3-0 loss at old rival Netherlands on Saturday. Germany remains without a win in the top-tier League A and has yet to score a goal. In the second-tier League B, the Czech Republic got its first win in the new competition — beating host Slovakia 2-1 — and Ireland and Denmark drew 0-0. In League D, Gibraltar won its first competitive game on a memorable night for the tiny territory. Here's a look at Saturday's games. NO GOALS FOR GERMANY Following its disastrous World Cup defense in Russia, Germany has been under pressure to show some progress but it didn't come at the Johan Cruyff Arena on Saturday night. The Germans failed to score for the third straight competitive game, including a humiliating 2-0 loss to South Korea in Russia and a 0-0 draw with France at home in the Nations League. Captain Virgil van Dijk scored only his second international goal before Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum added two more as the Dutch ran riot late in the game. The comprehensive defeat left Germany at the bottom of Group 1 with a single point, days before it heads to Paris to take on group leader and World Cup champion France. France leads the Dutch by a point at the top of the standings. The result also heaped more pressure on Germany coach Joachim Loew, who opted to stay in the job after the 2014 world champion crashed out of the summer's World Cup in Russia at the group stage. "Why are we not scoring? That's difficult to answer, we have clear chances," Loew said. "Had we lost 1-0, it would have been acceptable but breaking apart like this in the last 10 minutes is not good." Germany's scoring woes were personified by Loew's decision to play Mark Uth as a lone striker despite the 27-year-old Schalke player failing to score a goal this season. Uth didn't impress and was substituted in the second half. A corner from the right by Depay exposed German defensive frailties in the 30th. Ryan Babel rose between Jonas Hector and Mats Hummels to head against the underside of the bar and the ball bounced up invitingly for the unmarked Van Dijk to head in. Depay doubled the lead in the 87th, calmly finishing after a quick break down the right by substitute Quincy Promes. The Olympique Lyon striker then hit the crossbar in extra time before Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum made it 3-0 with virtually the last kick of the match as Germany crumbled. CZECHS WIN Substitute striker Patrik Schick scored the winning goal for the visiting Czech Republic to beat Slovakia 2-1 in Trnava. All the goals were in the second half. Three minutes after coming off the bench, Schick rose in the area in the 76th minute to head in a cross from captain Borek Dockal for his second goal in two matches. It was the first win for the Czechs in the competition after losing to Ukraine. Ukraine leads Group 1 in second-tier League B, with three more points than the Czechs. Slovakia remains pointless. Playmaker Marek Hamsik marked his record 108th appearance for Slovakia with his 22nd goal, a rebound after a corner, after Czech striker Michael Krmencik scored the opener following a through ball from Dockal. Ireland drew with Denmark in Group 4 in the only other game in League B later Saturday. Denmark tops the group with four points, one more than Wales in second. Ireland has one point. BULGARIA LEADS Ole Selnaes scored the only goal for Norway to beat Slovenia 1-0 in Group 3 of League C for its second win and trail leader Bulgaria by three points. Bulgaria rallied from a goal down to beat Cyprus 2-1. Cyprus has three points while Slovenia is on zero. GIBRALTAR ENDS LOSING STREAK Gibraltar's national team has recorded its first victory in a competitive match, a 1-0 win at Armenia, after losing its previous 22 competitive games. Joseph Chipolina got the historic winner from the penalty spot in the Group 4 game in League D. Gibraltar players had to listen to the national anthem of Liechtenstein before the match, a mistake for which Armenia FA apologized. Gibraltar hosts Liechtenstein on Tuesday. Macedonia kept a perfect record in the same group with a 4-1 victory over Lichtenstein to lead with nine points. The other three teams are tied on three points. In Group 1 of League D, Georgia made it three wins in three by beating Andorra 3-0 to dominate the standings with nine points. Andorra, Latvia and Kazakhstan all have two points after Latvia and Kazakhstan drew 1-1......»»

PVL: Ateneo-Motolite back in win column

Ateneo-Motolite took the fight out of Iriga-Navy with a devastating rally in the second set before sustaining its momentum in the third to complete a bounce back 25-19, 29-27, 25-14, win Sunday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Down by 12 points in the second set, the Lady Eagles once again clung to their heartstrong mantra to fuel an impressive fight back that highlighted Ateneo-Motolite’s third win in four games tied with Creamline and Pocari-Air Force. The Lady Eagles rebounded from a straight sets loss to BanKo last week by downing a revamped but still winless Lady Oragons. “Unang-una I just told them that you have to have pride and be responsible on everything you do. So I guess ‘yun ang dapat na number one na matutunan ng mga bata. Most of them know how to play but sometimes they forget how to win so I just told them to be responsible,” said Atenei-Motolite coach Oliver Almadro. “I guess ‘yung responsibility inako talaga nila and nag-make way para maka recover kami pero unfortunately, 24-20, inabutan pa rin kami. Pero siguro they just refused to lose na kasi nandoon na eh,” he added. Kat Tolentino finished with 14 points off 10 attacks, three kill blocks and an ace for the Lady Eagles. Middles Maddie Madayag and Bea De Leon had seven each while Ponggay Gaston posted eight markers for Ateneo-Motolite, which received 31 free points off Iriga-Navy’s errors. After taking the opening set, Ateneo-Motolite stared at a 17-5 deficit in the second frame. The Lady Oragons were still up, 20-12, before the Lady Eagles unleashed a 12-0 barrage to move at set point, 24-20. Iriga-Navy came back to life and moved at set point, 25-24. Ateneo-Motolite answered with two straight points before the Lady Oragons forced another deuce.   Tolentino gave the Lady Eagles back the lead but Hezzymie Acuna was quick to counter for knot the score at 27. Ponggay Gaston pushed Ateneo-Motolite on its third set point advantage before Nene Bautista committed an attack error to surrender the frame to the Lady Eagles.     With momentum on their side, Ateneo-Motolite created an early separation and never looked back in the third. The Lady Oragons, who inserted three Army players in Bautista, Joanne Bunag and libero Tin Agno to beef up their lineup, absorbed their sixth straight defeat in as many outings. Bunag had 11 points while Grazielle Bombita and Divine Eguia scored eight each for Iriga-Navy.     ---           Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Drum rolls, fiery exchanges mark Day 2 of COC filing

      The second day of filing of certificates of candidacy (COC) was another proof that elections in Philippines are not just a simple political affair but more of fiesta and circus. Not only did senatorial aspirants and partylist candidates submitted their COCs to the Commission on Elections (Comelec) main office on Friday, but they also brought a mood resembling Philippine festivities. After a quiet filing of COC by Senator Nancy Binay around 9:00 a.m., the fanfare began when former police chief Ronald dela Rosa formalized his senatorial candidacy under the ruling party, PDP-Laban.
