Cargo Movers book semis ticket
Majoy Baron of F2 Logistics hammered an attack against Iriga City.
Top seed F2 Logistics easily booked a spot in the Final Four after knocking out Iriga City, 25-19, 25-12, 25-17, Tuesday in the knockout quarterfinals of the 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
The Cargo Movers only needed 79 minutes to dispose the no. 8 ranked Oragons and advance into the sudden-death semifinals against the winner between Cignal and Cocolife.
American import Kennedy Bryan and Venezuelan reinforcement Maria Jose Perez had plenty of help from the local crew for the walk in the park win against the same team they dominated in their elimination round meeting.
Bryan scattered 14 points with 12 coming off attacks while Perez hammered 12 markers with all but one coming off spikes for the Ramil De Jesus-mentored squad.
Kim Kianna Dy contributed with nine points while reigning UAAP Most Valuable Player Majoy Baron and Aby Maraño combined for 10 points for F2 Logistics.
Kim Fajardo tallied 18 excellent sets for the Cargo Movers, who got 27 free points off errors committed by Iriga City.
F2 Logistics was just too much for the Oragons to handle, pouncing on Iriga City with missiles coming off all angles and keeping a choking defense at the net to build an early lead before cruising on each of the sets.
Import Tamara Kmezic and Saam Miyagawa finished with 15 and 10 points, respectively, for Iriga City but received an anemic contributions from their locals.
