Aby Marano muscled her way to 16 points in F2 Logistics' sweep of listless Cocolife.
Aby Marano displayed her vintage form to lead F2 Logistics to a dominating win over Cocolife, 25-13, 25-16, 25-8, in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Marano, the skipper of the national squad that saw action in the Asian Games for the first time in 36 years, tallied 10 attacks, three blocks and three aces for game-high 16 points for the Cargo Movers’s third straight win in as many games.
The win gave F2 Logistics the much-needed boost to gain momentum before their gigantic battle against Petron on Saturday at the Alonte Sports Arena in Binan City.
Marano’s fellow national team members Kianna Dy and Majoy Baron also shone as they chipped in 12 and 10 markers respectively for the Cargo Movers, who found a way to stop hard-hitting Filipino-American spiker Kalei Mau.
“They had good exposure with the national team,” said F2 Logistics head coach Ramil de Jesus. “That’s why I challenged them. I told them that they can’t afford to have a low performance because your coming off a good finish in the international arena.”
Mau, who campaigned for the Arizona Wildcats in the Division I of the US NCAA, was limited to only five points, which is her lowest output since joining this tourney.
Despite coming off a major injury, she still managed to post 13 points in their setback to Petron and 20 points in their loss to Cignal in their first two matches.
