Masyado kaming maraming errors -- BoC coach Meneses

Masyadong marami misreceives namin at service (errors). ‘Yung basic na errors di namin nakuha kaya mahihirapan talagang manalo -- Customs coach Sherwin Meneses
Errors and poor quality of their first ball plagued Bureau of Customs in the Transformers' straight sets loss to streaking Pocari Sweat.
BoC head coach Sherwin Meneses said that more than the Lady Warriors' superb game, it was the Transformers' miscues that did them in Saturday night.
Pocari Sweat handed the Transformers their second loss in five games in a swift 25-22, 25-2, 25-14, beating in the 13th V-League Reinfoced Conference at the Philsports Arena.
“Ang team namin ang naging problema hindi naman yung sa Pocari,” said Meneses, whose squad lost its second game in their last three outings.
BoC committed 27 errors and were outspiked by the Lady Warriors, 36-29.
It didn’t help that superstar Alyssa Valdez almost single-handedly carried the offense for the Transformers with Thai import Kanjana Kuthaisong held to only 10 points while Rosemarie Vargas was silenced to only three.
"Masyadong marami misreceives namin at service (errors). ‘Yung basic na errors di namin nakuha kaya mahihirapan talagang manalo,” said Meneses. “Kung ‘yung mga free ball hindi namin makuha, hindi talaga kami mananalo.”
BoC even squandered a 20-15 lead in the second set and just watched in horror as Pocari Sweat brought down a 10-2 hammer to steal the set and take the fight out of the Transformers.
“Kahit 10 pa ang lamang kung di talaga makuha ng maayos ang mga soft ball at free ball mahahabol at mahahabol talaga,” the mentor added. “E nagtuluy-tuloy pa hanggang sa third set.”
Meneses hopes that the team learned something from this game as they head into their last two games against listless Philippine Coast Guard and struggling Philippine Army.
“Maraming pa kaming concerns and mga dapat i-adjust,” he said. “Bago kasi ang team kahit na may Alyssa ka at imports ka.”
