Generika-Ayala nails second straight win at Sta. Lucia’s expense

After a momentous victory last Tuesday, the Generika-Ayala Lifesavers dominated the Sta. Lucia Lady Realtors, 25-7, 25-11, 25-23, in the 2018 Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Generika’s staunch defense and offense held up against Sta. Lucia’s dazed start to the match. Following a dominant first two sets, the Lifesavers needed to fend off a late Sta. Lucia push in the third frame.

Tied at 10, the Lifesavers cobbled together a 6-1 run to retake the advantage. Generika were at match point, 24-21, until two straight Sta. Lucia kills threatened to extend the match. Thankfuly, Patty Orendain closed the match for Generika with a cross-court hit.

Generika head coach Sherwin Meneses admitted that his squad had pulled in a lot of confidence after toppling F2 Logistics last Tuesday.

“Mataas talaga ‘yung kumpiyansa ng team. Kita naman na ibang level ‘yung pinapakita nilang energy ngayon,” said Meneses. “Kailangan pa namin iangat ‘yung record namin para mas maganda ang pwesto namin sa quarters kaya marami pa kami titiyagain sa mga susunod na game.”

Captain Angeli Areneta and middle blocker Ria Meneses each managed 11 points for the Lifesavers.

Sta. Lucia struggled offensively, with Jhoana Maraguinot managing just five points while Souza Raslan and Pam Lastimosa each added four.

Generika-Ayala (2-3) next face the Smart Giga Hitters (2-2) on Saturday at the Caloocan Sports Complex. Sta. Lucia (0-5) will aim for their first win, also on Saturday against the Cocolife Asset Managers (0-4).
