In a rematch of one of the most surprising upsets of the 2018 Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference, the F2 Logistics Cargo Movers romped the Generika-Ayala Lifesavers, 25-12, 25-20, 25-22, at the Caloocan City Sports Complex.
The Cargo Movers claimed solo second place with an 8-2 record. They will face the Cocolife Asset Managers in the knockout quarterfinals.
Majoy Baron torched the Lifesavers for 18 points off 13 attacks, four blocks and an ace, while team captain Cha Cruz-Behag added 10 points. Opposite hitter Kianna Dy sat out her third match of the conference due to knee soreness.
“Siguro as a team, we just try to fill kung anuman ‘yung nawawala sa amin,” said Behag of Dy’s absence.
“We’re just happy to get through this round. Now, our focus is going to be in the coming knockout games,” the skipper added.
Generika-Ayala saw their six-game winning streak snapped, ending the prelims with a 6-4 card.
Fiolla Ceballos topped the Lifesavers with nine points, while Angeli Araneta added eight.
