BanKo makes quick work of Adamson-Akari for 7th win

The BanKo Perlas Spikers barely needed an hour to nail their seventh win and whip the hapless Adamson-Akari Lady Falcons, 25-17, 25-17, 25-18, in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

BanKo had all but one of their players take the court and also limited their errors to 17. Perlas also dominated on attack, tallying 39 spikes to Adamson’s 26.

Head coach Dong Dela Cruz emphasized the importance of the break that Perlas had in rejuvenating their effort.

“Malaking bagay nga para sa team namin na nakapahinga kahit papaano kasi nakakuha ng energy,” said Dela Cruz.

“Siguro mababa rin lang ‘yung morale ng Adamson dahil nga sa record nila, so advantage yun sa amin na kailangan talaga ‘yung bawat panalo,” he added.

Kathy Bersola led BanKo with 13 points, while Dzi Gervacio added 11.

Bernadette Flora topped the Lady Falcons with 11 markers, while Ceasa Pinar managed seven. Lea Ann Perez came back from rest and scored three points in her first match of the tournament.

BanKo (7-2) will take on the Ateneo-Motolite Lady Eagles (8-2) on Saturday at the FilOil Flying V Centre. The Lady Falcons (0-9) will also face Ateneo-Motolite on Sunday at the same venue.

The Scores

BanKo (3) – Bersola 13, Gervacio 11, Tiamzon 10, Roces 7, Dacoron 4, Tajima 4, Emnas 1, Villanueva 1, Ahomiro 0, Ferrer 0, Doromal 0, De Jesus (L), Tan (L)

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