Generika-Ayala scores stunning sweep of Smart for 3rd straight win

The red-hot Generika-Ayala Lifesavers again displayed their deadly form, as they coasted to a 25-19, 25-12, 25-15 victory over the Smart Giga Hitters in the Chooks-to-Go/Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference, Saturday afternoon at the Caloocan Sports Complex.

Patty Orendain provided the spark for the Lifesavers, who stretched their winning streak to three after opening the tourney with a pair of setbacks.

Orendain, the high-flying open spiker from Bacolod City, delivered 18 points, 13 digs, and 10 excellent receptions as Generika-Ayala climbed the team standings with a 3-3 win-loss card.

Libero Kath Arado said they know Smart are a veteran and very disciplined team, so defeating them in straight set is normally impossible.

“Hindi namin inexpect na magswee-sweep namin sila,” said Arado, the University of the East libero, who has been consistently manning to backline for the Lifesavers. “Ginawa lang namin yung best namin para ma-execute yung inensayo namin.”

After barging into the win column with convincing victories over erstwhile-leaders F2 Logistics and Sta. Lucia, the Lifesavers are on a warpath oozing with confidence.

But after racing to a 16-9 lead in the third set, Aiko Urdas sparked a mini-rally to allow the Giga Hitters to move closer, 12-20, until Orendain restored order and towed the Lifesavers to match point.

Skipper Angeli Araneta chipped in eight markers. Ria Meneses had seven points for Generika-Ayala, who displayed tremendous improvement under the mentorship of Sherwin Meneses.

Grethcel Soltones tallied six points for Smart, who slid to 2-3.

Smart will next face the Cignal HD Spikers (3-3) on Tuesday.
