After a quick loss on opening day, the Tacloban Fighting Warays broke into the win column with a decisive win, 25-17, 25-17, 25-19, victory over the Iriga-Navy Oragons, Wednesday evening at the Malolos City Sports and Convention Center.

Tacloban dominated on all fronts, scoring leads early in each set and never looking back. The Warays were helped greatly by Iriga’s 24 errors as they limited their own miscues to just 16.

“‘Yun nga medyo tumaas ulit ang morale ng mga players, naka-recover kami doon sa pangit naming pagkatalo kasi para kaming nagkakagulo sa first game namin,” said Tacloban head coach Nes Pamilar of their loss to Petro Gazz last Saturday. “Ngayon, naka-adjust lang kami ulit, nakabalik ulit ang organized na game namin.”

Arellano University standout Jovielyn Prado and current Far Eastern University stalwart Heather Guino-O topped Tacloban with 13 points apiece. They each also provided 11 digs to fortify their team’s defense.

Iriga-Navy (1-1) faces Pocari Sweat (0-1) on Saturday the Imus City Sports Center.

Grazielle Bombita was the lone Oragon in double-digits with 12 points.

Iriga-Navy (0-2) aims for the first win against Petro Gazz (1-1) on Sunday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.
