Petro Gazz keeps Adamson-Akari slumping to end first round

The Petro Gazz Angels rose above the .500 mark after a comfortable sweep of the hapless Adamson-Akari Lady Falcons, 25-17, 25-20, 25-13, in the PVL Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Petro Gazz, who played five straight game days to start the season, stayed afloat in the first round, grabbing a 4-3 record to stay in the middle of the standings.

Head coach Jerry Yee lauded his team’s effort through the unfavorable circumstances and looked ahead to the second round, in which he and most of his players will be absent due to the UniGames.

“Siguro may mga missed opportunities nga kami this conference. We’re looking forward to getting over those,” said Yee.

“Yeah actually mawawala na sila kasi mag Uni Games sila tapos one game na lang maabutan nila pagbalik kasi eligibility na,” he added, as current Benilde Lady Blazers Rachel Austero and Marites Pablo will miss the rest of the tournament.

Kai Baloaloa had her best game for Petro Gazz with 14 points, while Alyssa Layug added 11 markers.

Bernadette Flora topped the Lady Falcons, who never held the lead, with 11 points.

The Lady Falcons (0-5) gun for their first win tomorrow against the Ateneo-Motolite Lady Eagles (3-1) at the same venue.

Petro Gazz (3) – Baloaloa 14, Layug 11, Nunag 10, Mercado 9, Sabete 8, Saet 6, Mendrez 2, Cheng 0, Pabli 0, Cruz (L), Enclona (L)
