Cargo Movers book semis ticket

Top seed F2 Logistics easily booked a spot in the Final Four after knocking out Iriga City, 25-19, 25-12, 25-17, Tuesday in the knockout quarterfinals of the 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Cargo Movers only needed 79 minutes to dispose the no. 8 ranked Oragons and advance into the sudden-death semifinals against the winner between Cignal and Cocolife. American import Kennedy Bryan and Venezuelan reinforcement Maria Jose Perez had plenty of help from the local crew for the walk in the park win against the same team they dominated in their elimination round meeting. Bryan scattered 14 points with 12 coming off attacks while Perez hammered 12 markers with all but one coming off spikes for the Ramil De Jesus-mentored squad. Kim Kianna Dy contributed with nine points while reigning UAAP Most Valuable Player Majoy Baron and Aby Maraño combined for 10 points for F2 Logistics. Kim Fajardo tallied 18 excellent sets for the Cargo Movers, who got 27 free points off errors committed by Iriga City. F2 Logistics was just too much for the Oragons to handle, pouncing on Iriga City with missiles coming off all angles and keeping a choking defense at the net to build an early lead before cruising on each of the sets. Import Tamara Kmezic and Saam Miyagawa finished with 15 and 10 points, respectively, for Iriga City but received an anemic contributions from their locals. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

HD Spikers end slump, crush reeling Oragons

Games Tuesday: (Filoil Flying V Centre) 4:15 p.m. –- Victoria Sports-UST vs SLR 7:00 p.m. -– Petron vs Foton   MALOLOS CITY -- Cignal banked on its rock-solid defense to dominate Iriga City, 26-24, 25-23, 25-17, to end a two-game slump in the 2017 Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga Grand Prix Saturday at the Malolos Sports and Convention Center here. Jovelyn Gonzaga provided the spark, but it was the imposing defensive presence of imports Beth Carey of Australia and Alexis Matthews of United States and Paneng Mercado that did the damage for the HD Spikers. Gonzaga fired 15 kills while Carey and Matthews delivered 10 markers apiece as the HD Spikers controlled the blocking department, 8-1. With the win, the HD Spikers shared the fourth spot with idle Generika-Ayala with a 2-3 win-loss card and stepped back on the winning track following a pair of setbacks to Petron and Cocolife, respectively. “Ayun overwhelming (yung panalo) dahil galing din kami sa ilang talo,” said HD Spikers head coach George Pascua, who is still missing the services of veteran Rachel Anne Daquis who was nursing a bruised knee. “Hopefully, masustain namin yung winning character ng mga players,” he added. “Kailangan maovercome namin ang pressure dahil nga champion team kami ng Invitationals.” Despite losing Grethcel Soltones to a one-year suspension, the Lady Oragons came out firing early on. Serbian import Tamara Kmezic waxed hot at the attack zone, towing the Lady Oragons to a 21-19 lead in the crucial stretch of the first set. But Gonzaga delivered back-to-back hits followed by an attack error by the 6-foot-7 Serbian opposite that gave the first set victory and the momentum to the HD Spikers, much to the delight of a massive weekend crowd in this historic city. Kmezic spewed fire offensively with 22 kills while Saama Miyagawa of Japan chipped in 12 kills and a pair of aces for 14 points for the Lady Oragons, who absorbed their third consecutive setback after opening their bid with an impressive win over Sta. Lucia Realty.  .....»»

Lifesavers end two-game slump

Generika-Ayala made short work of Iriga City,  25-16, 25-15, 25-21, Thursday to arrest a two-game losing slump in the 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lifesavers improved their win-loss record to 2-3 despite having import Darlene Ramdin of Trinidad and Tobago at sickbay because of food poisoning. "Nagkaroon sya ng food poisoning. So she’s still recovering," said Generika-Ayala coach Francis Vicente. "Medyo na-dehydrate nang konti pero okay na sya ngayon, hindi lang namin sya pinupuwersa." With Ramdin spending most of the match at the bench, Croatian reinforcement Katarina Pilepic carried the scoring load by  blasting  20 points off 15 attacks, three aces and a couple of kill blocks for Generika-Ayala. "Well I just motivated them in terms of mindset kasi I think that’s very important in a team, yung mindset nila towards any game," said Vicente. "So yun lang siguro yung nagiging problem, mga nagiging kulang namin in terms of setting their minds during competition. And kailangang relaxed and happy sila, dapat enjoy the game." Angeli Araneta had 13 points while Shaya Adorador and Chloe Cortez combined for 15 markers for the Lifesavers. The Oragons absorbed their second straight defeat in three outings and were obviously reeling from losing local top hitter Grethcel Soltones, who was banned for a year and slapped with a P50,000 fine after an infraction against the PSL's one-league policy. Serbian import Tamara Kmezic was the lone bright spot on offense with 13 kills, an ace and a block for 15 points while Japanese spiker Saama Miyagawa had a quiet seven markers for Iriga City. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PSL Grand Prix to showcase record nine-team field

Philippine Superliga will cap off its fifth season with an explosive nine-team field Grand Prix, which will unfurl on Saturday at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The competition gets even hotter with teams allowed to field up to three foreign players each. Two new teams will also be introduced in this edition of the season-ending conference with Iriga City and collegiate team University of Sto. Tomas joining the fray. “With a record of nine teams, this is going to be the biggest PSL ever,” said PSL president Ramon “Tats” Suzara during the press launch graced by PSL chairman Philip Ella Juico and Bounty Agro Ventures president Ronald Mascarinas Wednesday at Vikings Luxury Buffet at MOA in Pasay City. “We have a very competitive field and all teams are capable of coming up with a very good fight,” he added. “This is going to be a very great season and we know that only the strongest will survive.” Defending two-time champion Foton remains to be one of the teams to beat with Serbian coach Moro Branislav bringing in compatriots and tested talents Sara Klisura and Katarina Vukamanovic as well as Montenegrin Dragana Perunicnic. Giving the Tornadoes a run for their money are perennial powerhouse squads Petron, Cignal and F2 Logistics. Powering the Blaze Spikers this time is seasoned reinforcement Lindsay Stalzer, who led Foton to its two titles, with another American Hillary Hurley and Japanese libero Yuri Fukuda. The HD Spikers addressed their needs at the defensive end with the recruitment of Beth Carey of Australia, Alexis Matthews of United States and Mami Miyashita of Japan while the Cargo Movers will rest injured spiker Ara Galang, but her absence will be hardly felt with the acquisition of Kennedy Bryan of USA and former Olympian Maria Jose Perez of Venezuela. Also seeing action are regulars Generika-Ayala, Sta. Lucia Realty and Cocolife. The Lifesavers will parade Katarina Pilepic of Croatia, Penina Snuka of Hawaii and Darlene Ramdin of Trinidad and Tobago, who is just fresh from leading her country to the FIVB World Championship in Japan next year. Sta. Lucia, meanwhile, will have Canadian national team members Marisa Field and Kristen Moncks and Ukrainian Bodhana Anisova at the forefront while Cocolife will bank on Tai Manu-Olevao and Taylor Milton of the United States. Iriga City would also be a force to be reckoned with despite being the league’s newest member. The Lady Oragons will parade Tamara Kmezic of Serbia, who is the tallest import ever to play in the PSL at 6-foot-6. Kmezic will be assisted by Japanese libero Minami Yoshioka as well as local star Grethcel Soltones. The Tigresses, meanwhile, is the only team without an import as they would be competing as a guest team in preparation for the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) women’s volleyball tournament next year.   .....»»
