Cocolife avoids late meltdown, quells Sta. Lucia

Banking on high-scoring import Sara Klisura, the Cocolife Asset Managers scored a four-set win over the Sta. Lucia Lady Realtors to start the second round of the 2018 Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga Grand Prix on a high at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The Serbian Klisura tallied 29 points off 25 attacks, three aces, and a block to power the Asset Managers to their fifth win in eight outings.

Klisura provided crucial points in the fourth set, after her squad nearly relinquished a 23-18 advantage.

“Sta. Lucia played really well, they showed that they didn’t want us to get the win that easy,” said the PSL record holder for most points in a match.

“We’re getting better as the season goes along. Hopefully, it continues for us,” she added, referring to their disastrous 0-2 record to start the Grand Prix.

American lefty winger Taylor Milton added 14 points, while veteran middle blocker Mary Jean Balso-Pabayo managed nine markers to pace the Asset Managers.

Bohdana Anisova towed the Lady Realtors with 24 points, while Marisa Field contributed 14 markers.

Cocolife take on the Smart Prepaid Giga Hitters (0-9) on Saturday at the Batangas Sports and Convention Center. The Lady Realtors slid to a 3-5 card, and next face the Petron Blaze Spikers (9-0) on Thursday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.
