Angeli Araneta embraces being complement to Tai Bierria

Angeli Araneta played the perfect second fiddle to American import Tai Bierria in Cignal’s straight-set conquest of Chery Tiggo in the 2022 Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference semifinals, Friday night.

Bierria finished with 21 points on 19 attacks and two kill blocks to lead the 28-26, 25-17, 25-23 at the Philsports Arena while Araneta backstopped her with 10 points and seven excellent receptions.

The University of the Philippines product, who has been playing consistently ever since she was acquired by the HD Spikers early this year, said that she just kept herself ready at all times during the match.

Araneta scored three of Cignal’s final six points in the third frame. She was also responsible for giving the HD Spikers a 23-22 advantage that eventually helped them fend off the Crossovers, who were threatening to extend the game.PVL-Reinforced-Cignal-vs.-Choco-Mucho-Angeli-Araneta-3892 Angeli Araneta embraces being complement to Tai Bierria News PVL Volleyball  - philippine sports news

“Ako naman parang nire-ready ko lang naman lagi yung sarili ko, samin naman kasi kung sino naman yung ipasok alam naman namin na ibibigay yung best and sakin lang, ‘pag pinasok ako ni coach alam kong pinagkakatiwalaan ako,” said Araneta after the win.

“Yung boost din ng mga teammates ko yun din yung isang nagpapalakas ng loob sakin,” she added.

Cignal has already played in three consecutive playdates and the 29-year-old wing spiker said that it was a blessing in disguise for Cignal as they were able to use that momentum heading into the semifinals.

“One day lang yung naging recovery namin pero ang naging maganda doon is nasa momentum kami, parang hindi kami napahinga.”
