After falling to a two-game skid, the F2 Logistics Cargo Movers showed their championship form, slapping the Foton Blue Energy with their first loss in the 2018 Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference, 25-15, 25-13, 25-13, at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The Cargo Movers made a slow start, losing grip on an 11-7 advantage in the first set and allowing Foton to come within one, 11-10. Following a timeout, the Cargo Movers found a different gear and blew the match wide open.

“Medyo nag-relax siguro noong una. Kailangan lang ng kaunting reminders para maka-focus ulet,” F2 Logistics head coach Ramil De Jesus shared as his team blasted Foton from there.

F2 Logistics piled up 37 attacks to Foton’s 17. After a zero-ace performance against Generika, the Cargo Movers fired in seven against Foton.

“Siguro ngayon importante na maging healthy lang ulet ‘yung team. Mahaba pa ‘yung season eh, so marami pa kaming kailangan ayusin din,” added De Jesus.

Ara Galang topped the Cargo Movers with 14 points, while Majoy Baron added 10. Kianna Dy returned after missing last Tuesday’s match due to a sore knee. She managed nine markers.

Mina Aganon led Foton with eight points, while Shaya Adorador tallied seven.

F2 Logistics (4-2) take on the Smart Giga Hitters (2-2) next Thursday also at the FilOil Flying V Centre. Foton (4-1) will face the Cocolife Asset Managers (0-5) on Tuesday at the same venue.
