STATEMENT. Petron, defending champion of the All-Filipino Conference, made quick work of Foton, defending champion of the import-laden Grand Prix.
Petron’s title defense in the 2016 PSL All-Filipino Conference got off on the right foot following a straight sets victory versus Foton.
Aiza Maizo-Pontillas tallied a game-high 16 points and the Tri-Activ Spikers blasted the Tornadoes, 25-19, 25-17, 25-21, at the San Juan Arena, Saturday.
The former University of Sto. Tomas standout got all but one of her points off kills while the Far Eastern University tandem of Remy Palma and Bernadette Pons merged for 17 points in the defending champions’ tournament-opening win.
Nothing but appreciative of his team captain, coach George Pascua said, “Nakapag-adjust na talaga siya sa role niya. Nakita niyo naman na maganda na ang ginagalaw lalo na sa palo niya.”
