F2 Logistics dominated RC Cola-Army for the second straight meeting Sunday to remain unbeaten in eight games.
F2 Logistics extended its mastery over RC Cola-Army in a sweeping fashion 25-16, 25-12, 25-15, Sunday to remain undefeated as the Cargo Movers open the 2016 Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Group A second round preliminary phase at The Arena in San Juan on a high note.
The Cargo Movers dominated the Lady Troopers for the second straight game less than 24 hours since their first meeting to end opening preliminary round.
Compared to F2 Logistics’ marathon 25-22, 25-14, 21-25, 26-28, 15-10 win over Army Saturday night, the Cargo Movers needed only three sets to repulse the Lady Troopers for their eighth straight victory.
“Siguro nakakasunod lang sa game plan and nai-execute ng mga bata ang plano,” said F2 Logistics coach Ramil De Jesus.
“Sa amin kasi basta mag-enjoy lang sa game kasi alam naman natin na wala namang saysayn itong eliminations sa top four e. Alam naman natin na pagdating doon sa semis ‘yun ang importante, ‘yung crossover. Kumbaga dito pride na lang siguro pag naglaro,” the mentor added.
PSL ambassadress Mika Reyes showed the way for the Cargo Movers with 12 points with nine coming off kills while Cha Cruz scored 10. Abigail Marano finished with eight markers while Ara Galang, Kim Dy and Kim Fajardo, who dished out 24 excellent sets, scored seven each for the youthful F2 Logistics, which showed no signs of slowing down compared to the veteran-laden Army squad.
“Kahapon parehas pagod so mas bata lang ‘yung sa amin. Alam namin na ‘yung mga players ko masasakit ang katawan, siguro doble ‘yung sa kabila. Advantage namin ‘yun na mas bata (mga players ko),” said De Jesus, whose wards had 11 kill blocks.
F2 Logistics will take on Petron on Thursday and Foton on Sunday in the round robin stage to determine their seeding in the knockout semis.
No Army player scored in double figures with AVC Asian Club Championship and FIVB Women’s Club World Championship-bound Jovelyn Gonzaga and Rachel Anne Daquis finished with nine and seven points, respectively.
The Lady Troopers fell for the second straight time after a six-game rampage.
