Behind a balanced performance, the F2 Logistics Cargo Movers breezed past the Sta. Lucia Lady Realtors, 25-19, 25-20, 25-16, in the 2018 Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Cup at the FilOil Flying V Centre.
The Cargo Movers used their terrific serving and floor defense to pull away in each set. F2 Logistics limited Sta. Lucia to 31 spikes while producing 48 of their own.
F2 Logistics head coach Ramil De Jesus, however, remains wary of his team’s slow starts. The Cargo Movers were tied with the Lady Realtors at various points in each set.
“Minsan kasi kapag nakita na galing sa talo ‘yung kalaban, medyo mabagal ‘yung simula, sinasabayan namin ‘yung galaw. So, hanggang sa dumikit ‘yung score tapos magkakakumpiyansa ‘yung kalaban. Kailangan namin iwasan ‘yung ganoon,” said the three-time PSL champion coach.
Middle blocker Majoy Baron led the Cargo Movers with 14 points off 12 attacks, a block, and an ace while also piling up seven digs. Opposite hitter Kianna Dy and open hitter Ara Galang each managed 12 markers.
Jhoana Maraguinot was the only Lady Realtor in double-digits with 10 points.
The Cargo Movers (2-0) next take on the Cocolife Asset Managers (0-2) on Thursday at the FilOil Flying V Centre. Sta. Lucia (0-2) will face the Foton Blue Energy (2-0) on Thursday at the same venue.
