Petron crushed Sta. Lucia Realty in four sets, 25-21, 18-25, 25-17, 25-20 in the 2018 Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga (PSL) Grand Prix Saturday at the Ynares Sports Center in Pasig City.
Lindsay Stalzer picked up where she left off, erupting for 22 kills, six aces and two blocks for 30 points while Hillary Hurley had 18 markers for the Blaze Spikers, who are eager to avenge their sorry finals meltdown to F2 Logistics last season.
“We want to start the season on a high note,” said Petron coach Shaq Delos Santos, whose wards unleashed their fighting form in the third set before going for the kill in the fourth to avoid an opening-day mishap.
“This is the kind of game I expect on opening day. I’m glad the girls responded well and embraced the challenge.”
Ukrainian Bohdana Anisova provided the spark with 18 points while MJ Philips chipped in 16 markers for the Lady Realtors.
