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......»»

Petron downs Smart to keep share of lead

Defending champion Petron struggled in form early but recovered its bearing just in time to turn back Smart, 25-23, 25-14, 25-18, Thursday in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Blaze Spikers needed to comeback from six points down in the opening set before settling down and cashing in on their vaunted net defense and deep arsenal to claim their third win in as may outings for a share of the lead with F2 Logistics and Foton. Ces Molina displayed her scoring prowess with 11 kills, three aces and two kill blocks to finish with game-high 16 points for the Blaze Spikers, who will take on F2 Logistics on Saturday. Aiza Maizo-Pontillas played an all-around game with 12 points laced with 11 digs and four excellent receptions while Mika Reyes feasted on quick attacks to score 10 of her 11 markers on kills for Petron.   The Blaze Spikers started out slow, letting the Giga Hitters control most of the opening set. Petron behind energizer Sisi Rondina, who scored nine points, slowly chopped down their 21-16 deficit before crushing the confidence of Smart with a closing rally to steal the frame. With the Blaze Spikers heating up, the second set easily went to Petron as they built a 12-point advantage, 23-11, before sealing the set.   Smart played with urgency in the third and kept the game close until midway in the frame before Petron saw an opening to complete the sweep. Aiko Urdas led the Giga Hitters with 15 points while Jerrili Malabanan and Grethcel Soltones added 12 and 10 markers, respectively, for Smart, which dropped to 1-1 slate. Meanwhile, Foton crushed Sta. Lucia, 25-14, 25-21, 19-25, 25-13, to remain unscathed. Mina Aganon and Arriane Layug powered the Tornadoes with 19 and 17 points, respectively, while CJ Rosario had 10. Jho Maragunot was the only Lady Realtor in double figures with 11 points as SLR suffered its third loss in as many games. .....»»

Top contenders F2 Logistics, Foton cruise past Superliga foes

F2 Logistics and Foton, two of the teams tipped to contend for the title, clobbered their respective foes in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The two squads also clinched their second straight victory, with the Cargo Movers crushing Sta. Lucia, 25-19, 25-20, 25-18, and the Tornadoes whipping Cignal, 25-15, 18-25, 25-22, 25-20. Majoy Baron led the Cargo Movers with 14 points. Meanwhile, CJ Rosario delivered 13 kills, two blocks and two aces to finish with 17 points while Mina Aganon tallied 14 hits for Foton, which hardly missed the presence of towering frontliners Jaja Santiago and Dindin Manabat.

Foton, Petron, F2 Logistics share top spot

F2 Logistics and Foton sustained their blazing starts as they clobbered their respective foes in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Cargo Movers crushed Sta. Lucia, 25-19, 25-20, 25-18, while the Tornadoes devastated Cignal, 25-15, 18-25, 25-22, 25-20, to clinch their second straight victory in as many outings. They were joined at the top spot by Petron after the Blaze Spikers defeated Generika-Ayala, 25-18, 25-22, 25-13. Aiza Maizo-Pontillas finished with 11 points while Remy Palma added nine for Petron, which sent the Lifesavers to their second loss in as many games. Meanwhile, Majoy Baron led the charge with 14 points and added seven digs, while former Most Valuable Player awardee Ara Galang and Kianna Dy chipped in 12 markers apiece for the Cargo Movers, who came up with a fitting follow-up to their impressive win over the HD Spikers in the opener. But F2 Logistics head coach Ramil de Jesus remains far from satisfied.  “We often start slow, especially whenever we play against opponents who just came from a tough loss,” said de Jesus, noting that they are still searching for their killer instinct. “We should get away with it because it gives momentum to other team. We have to be at our best from start to finish regardless of whom we are facing.” CJ Rosario delivered 13 kills, two blocks and two aces to finish with 17 points while Mina Aganon tallied 14 hits for Foton, which hardly missed the presence of towering frontliners Jaja Santiago and Dindin Manabat. Santiago and Manabat opted to sit out the season-ending conference to see action in the prestigious V.Premier League of Japan. Foton head coach Aaron Velez stressed that they remain a work in progress. "I think we were able to get back to our system,” said Velez, who took the helm from John Abella in the off-season. “We're still trying to figure out how to be consistent. But, I also think were able to tap our energy and momentum down the stretch.” Velez said they made some changes in their position to thwart the vaunted defense of the HD Spikers. "We were always training in the match,” said Velez, who also drew solid performance from new recruits Arianne Layug and Shaya Adorador that gave Ateneo de Manila ace blocker Bea de Leon the luxury of seeing limited minutes. “We wanted to win this one very badly so I thought of a plan in which we can take advantage of our positions and turn the game around. Fortunately, it worked.”  Rachel Anne Daquis, the newly-crowned league ambassador, sizzled with game-high 21 points laced with 13 digs while national team stalwart Mylene Paat added 17 hits for the HD Spikers, who suffered their second setback in three games. .....»»

Letran’s coach Jeff: Ngayon pa lang, we re ready sa NCAA 95

Colegio de San Juan de Letran’s strong season ended with a whimper at the hands of rampaging Lyceum of the Philippines University last Friday. All throughout the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament, the Knights proved that they are a playoff team – and even more, a title contender. While that didn’t necessarily show in their loss to the Pirates, they nonetheless remain upbeat that they could do all of that all over again next year. In fact, even now, Letran is already talking like a favorite. “Ngayon pa lang, we’re ready sa Season 95,” head coach Jeff Napa said right after their elimination in the ongoing season. With triple-double threat Bong Quinto and steady leader JP Calvo already graduating, it will be a tall task for coach Jeff to back up his claim. Still, he has nothing but full faith on those who will be returning. “Next year, definitely, Jerrick will be 100 percent. I think, January (next year), good to go na siya,” the mentor said, talking about starting off-guard Jerrick Balanza who was forced to undergo brain surgery just two months ago. He then continued, “Nandyan pa naman si Bonbon, si Larry, si Christian, si Jeo so pretty confident talaga ako dun sa maiiwan.” Indeed, Quinto and Calvo were the shining stars, but the likes of Jeo Ambohot, Bonbon Batiller, Christian Fajarito, Koy Galvelo, and Larry Muyang turned the Knights into a force to reckon with. For his part, recovering Balanza gave off the same sort of confidence. “Buo pa rin kaming makakapasok sa Final Four next year. Masasabi ko ngayon pa lang na ramdam na namin kung gaano kahirap sa Final Four so alam na namin kung paano namin tatagusin ito next year,” he said. He then continued, “Expect ninto na magfa-Finals ang Letran next year.” And in the same light, coach Jeff and Balanza have nothing but full faith on those who will be coming in. As the former put it, “Next year is a different story. A lot of guys are coming in from our Team B so actually, pinagpreparahan na rin namin yung pagkawala ni (Bong, JP, Alex Mandreza, at Jeremiah Taladua),” he said. He then continued, “Team B namin, binugbog na namin sa Team A para at least, ma-experience na nila kung ano yung level of competitiveness. It’s a matter of kailangan lang namin i-polish at saka i-jell together yung mga naiwan.” Who are those players on the Knights’ Team B? Former University of Sto. Tomas swingman Jordan Sta. Ana, former Nazareth School of National University versatile forward Allen Mina, and former Squire stud guard Kiefer Cordero, just to name a few. Without a doubt, Letran is adamant that it will still be stacked for next season. As for the rest of the NCAA, though? “At the same time, yung mga kalaban namin, marami rin naman silang mawawala. Problema na nila yun kung paano kami haharapin next year na mas malakas,” coach Jeff said, alluding to the departures of CJ Perez from LPU, Robert Bolick from San Beda University, and Prince Eze from University of Perpetual Help. He then continued, “Mas malakas, tapos mas sugatan ngayon kaya babawi kami next year.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
