Sta. Lucia Realty finally long drought as the Lady Realtors schooled Victoria Sports-University of Santo Tomas, 25-19, 25-21, 25-19, Tuesday in the 2017 Chooks to-Go-Philippine Superliga (PSL) Grand Prix at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
The Lady Realtors gifted head coach Jerry Yee his first win in the league after dropping their first three games.
Ukranian reinforcement Dana Anisova led SLR’s assault with 13 points anchored on 11 attacks while Canadian Marisa Field and local star Pam Lastimosa chipped in 11 markers apiece for the Lady Realtors.
Rialen Sante added nine points while Rebecca Rivera tallied 20 excellent sets for SLR.
Still, Yee was from satisfied with their win against the collegiate squad.
“Madami pa rin kaming errors and lapses then, hindi pa rin nagko-connect ang setter at middle hitters natin,” he said pointing at their 23 errors. “Buti nalang nandiyan ‘yung ibang imports natin na kayang-kaya ‘yung outside hits.”
“Ang hirap noon kapag natalo pa kami. So, kahit papaano may konting pressure doon. We needed a win so we got a win,” he added. “Ito ang mga baby steps namin so we’ll take it.”
Dimdim Pacres scored nine points while Carla Sandoval and Caitlyn Viray tallied eight markers each for the Golden Tigresses, who remained listless in three outings.
