PVL: Perlas Spikers eye bounce back win, semis seat

After a shocking loss the last time out, BanKo marches back into action hoping to get back on the winning track and secure a spot in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference Final Four. The Perlas Spikers take on a desperate Pocari Sweat-Air Force side on Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Opening serve is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream. BanKo saw its three-game winning streak snapped by PetroGazz in a disappointing 11-25, 23-25, 18-25 defeat just a day after the Perlas Spikers scored a dominating sweep of semis-bound Ateneo-Motolite. BanKo holds an 8-3 win-loss record in third place behind the Lady Eagles (10-3) and Creamline (8-2) and are already secured of at least a playoff for a semis spot. But the Perlas Spikers remain wary of the dangerous Lady Warriors, who nipped them in five sets in their first meeting in Baliwag, Bulacan. Pocari Sweat is in desperate need of wins in their remaining three games to keep its semis hopes alive. The Lady Warriors are outside of the top four, holding a 5-6 mark, a game and a half away from fourth running PetroGazz. Pocari Sweat despite the gallant effort put up by Myla Pablo, Jeanette Panaga, Del Palomata and Iari Yongco fell short in their last outing at the hands of the Alyssa Valdez-led Cool Smashers, 25-23, 21-25, 20-25, 25-22, 9-15, in Legazpi City last Saturday.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Lady Eagles seek bounce back win and a semis seat

Ateneo-Motolite suffered a stinging setback in its attempt to advance to the Final Four. Back in action less than 24 hours after absorbing their third loss, the Lady Eagles march into battle on Sunday against winless Adamson-Akari, hoping to clinch a semifinals seat this time in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream.      Ateneo-Motolite saw its four-game winning streak snapped by first round tormentor BanKo, 24-26, 22-25, 16-25, Saturday night in Malolos, Bulacan. The Lady Eagles slid to second place with a 9-3 win-loss record. But Ateneo-Motolite remains to be the favored team compared to the Lady Falcons, who have yet to taste victory in the season-ending conference. Adamson-Akari is already eliminated in the Final Four race with a 0-9 slate, but the Lady Falcons could still give the Lady Eagles a huge challenge especially with Ateneo-Motolite barely escaping them during their first encounter in five sets.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Cargo Movers keep tight hold of lead

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......»»

Petron downs Smart to keep share of lead

Defending champion Petron struggled in form early but recovered its bearing just in time to turn back Smart, 25-23, 25-14, 25-18, Thursday in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Blaze Spikers needed to comeback from six points down in the opening set before settling down and cashing in on their vaunted net defense and deep arsenal to claim their third win in as may outings for a share of the lead with F2 Logistics and Foton. Ces Molina displayed her scoring prowess with 11 kills, three aces and two kill blocks to finish with game-high 16 points for the Blaze Spikers, who will take on F2 Logistics on Saturday. Aiza Maizo-Pontillas played an all-around game with 12 points laced with 11 digs and four excellent receptions while Mika Reyes feasted on quick attacks to score 10 of her 11 markers on kills for Petron.   The Blaze Spikers started out slow, letting the Giga Hitters control most of the opening set. Petron behind energizer Sisi Rondina, who scored nine points, slowly chopped down their 21-16 deficit before crushing the confidence of Smart with a closing rally to steal the frame. With the Blaze Spikers heating up, the second set easily went to Petron as they built a 12-point advantage, 23-11, before sealing the set.   Smart played with urgency in the third and kept the game close until midway in the frame before Petron saw an opening to complete the sweep. Aiko Urdas led the Giga Hitters with 15 points while Jerrili Malabanan and Grethcel Soltones added 12 and 10 markers, respectively, for Smart, which dropped to 1-1 slate. Meanwhile, Foton crushed Sta. Lucia, 25-14, 25-21, 19-25, 25-13, to remain unscathed. Mina Aganon and Arriane Layug powered the Tornadoes with 19 and 17 points, respectively, while CJ Rosario had 10. Jho Maragunot was the only Lady Realtor in double figures with 11 points as SLR suffered its third loss in as many games. .....»»

PVL: Valdez fights through ankle pain, leads Cool Smashers back in win column

Alyssa Valdez played through pain in her right ankle to power Creamline past Tacloban, 25-16, 25-16, 26-24, and return in the win column Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Cool Smashers star limped out of the court in the second set before heroically returning in the third to carry her team from a 19-23 deficit to a resounding sweep as Creamline improved to a 7-2 win-loss record, tied with BanKo at second spot behind Ateneo-Motolite (9-2). Valdez finished with game-high 17 points off 10 attacks, five aces and a couple of kill blocks laced with 11 digs for the Cool Smashers, who recovered from a five-set loss to the Lady Eagles two weeks ago. Valdez said that she felt pain in her foot as early as the opening set after a bad landing. She played through pain until midway in the second set before subbing out.   With her team down, 10-15, in the third Valdez returned to action and immediately scored an attack to rally her team to an amazing fightback. Pau Soriano sparked Creamline’s run in the closing stretch of the third set, scoring on quick attack before Valdez pounded back-to-back hits to cut their deficit to 22-23. Jovielyn Prado answered with a kill to put the Fighting Warays at match point before Alina Bicar sent her service short that tied the frame at 24. Valdez again smashed consecutive attacks before Jia Morado wrapped up the win with an ace to end the one-hour, 22-minute match. Tacloban fell to its third straight loss to slide back with a 4-7 card. Dimdim Pacres finished with nine points while Prado, Bicar and Heather Guino-o scored six each for the Fighting Warays.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
