PSL official Dr. Ian Laurel he was able to talk to Gonzaga inside Cignal’s dugout.
“We don’t know if it's an ACL or an MCL (injury) or both. She said she heard a pop when she landed,” said Laurel. “She has no prior history ng ganyang injury and sometimes kasi yung fear din nandoon.”
The unbeaten Cargo Movers defeated Cignal, 25-22, 25-13, 25-12, for a 6-0 slate. The HD Spikers absorbed their fourth loss in six games.
