With one of the most intact lineups in the 2018 Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Cup, the F2 Logistics Cargo Movers’ cohesiveness spelled the difference, as they made quick work of the Cignal HD Spikers, 25-16, 25-19, 25-19, in their opening day match at the FilOil Flying V Centre.
Cignal HD tailed F2 Logistics to start each set, but failed to keep up after the second technical timeout. The Cargo Movers pushed a 16-15 lead into a 24-15 gap.
F2 Logistics similarly fended off late runs in the second and third sets to come away with the quick win.
“Well, good start para sa amin. Nag-gain kami ng confidence para sa susunod na game. Although medyo hindi pa ganoon kabilis ‘yung galaw and sumasabay pa kami sa bilis ng kalaban,” said F2 Logistics head coach Ramil De Jesus.
“May mga kailangan pang ayusin para gumanda ‘yung galaw sa loob,” the decorated mentor furthered.
Cha Cruz-Behag led the Cargo Movers with 12 points, while Invitational Cup Most Valuable Player Ara Galang had an all-around line of eight points, eight digs, and nine excellent receptions.
F2 Logistics gained a major edge through their stinginess in errors, allowing just 12 giveaways to Cignal’s 25.
Rachel Anne Daquis and Mylene Paat each provided Cignal with 12 points.
F2 Logistics (3) – Behag 12, Baron 11, Dy 11, Maraño 8, Galang 7, Luna 1, Fajardo 0, Macandili (L)
Cignal HD (0) – Daquis 12, Paat 12, Tubino 6, Vivas 3, Salamagos 3, Doria 2, Malaluan 2, Aguilar 1, Navarro 1, Macatuno 0, Masangkay 0, Dionela (L)
