Defending champions Petron Blaze Spikers continued their splendid start to the 2018 Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference, stifling the Sta. Lucia Lady Realtors, 25-18, 27-25, 25-17, at the Caloocan Sports Complex.

National Team stalwart Aiza Miazo-Pontillas led the balanced Blaze Spikers attack with 13 points while middle blocker Remy Palma contributed 12.

“Ngayon siguro sinusubukan lang namin ma-maintain ‘yung focus namin kasi may ilan pa kaming laban and hindi talaga pwedeng bumaba ‘yung level namin,” said Petron head coach Shaq Delos Santos.

“Consistency talaga ‘yung susi sa mga ganitong season kasi every game, lalong hihirap ‘yung mga laban namin,” the national team mentor added.

Petron (8-0) faces Foton (5-2) on Tuesday at the Bacoor Strike Gym.

Towering winger Souzan Razlan and wiry middle blocker Jeanette Villareal each managed 11 markers for the Lady Realtors who stumbled to their eighth straight loss.

The Lady Realtors take on Smart (2-5) also on Tuesday.

Now, he has waded through everything volleyball - from its icky politics to the post-modern art that is Jia Morado's setting.
