F2 Logistics showed that on any given day, any player can lead the Cargo Movers.
Behind a spectacular outing by Ara Galang, F2 Logistics hammered the Foton Tornadoes Blue Energy in four sets, taking a 25-9, 23-25, 25-22, 25-16 victory, Saturday evening at the Imus Sports Center in Cavite.
Entering the game, a flu bug hit the Cargo Movers, as Kalei Mau and Aby Maraño were ill.
“Hindi madali pinagdaanan namin sa Foton. Medyo hirap din yung Fil-Hawaiian ko kasi may sore throat, ganun din si Maraño,” disclosed F2 Logistics head coach Ramil de Jesus.
After cruising through the first set, F2 Logistics struggled to sustain the momentum in the next frame that evened things out.
“Makikita natin na kulang pa. Hindi pa masyadong gamay ng team (ang isa’t isa), lalo na sa setting may mga unforced errors pa. Gusto ko pa ma-polish pa yung floor defense at yung blocking namin,” he lamented.
Ara Galang picked it up in the third set.
With Foton erasing a once seven-point lead down to just one late in the canto, Galang provided the spark. Kim Dy then delivered two straight points before Maraño closed out the set.
Galang had a game-high 20 points, while Mau added 15 markers.
It was all F2 Logistics in the final set, as they scored their third win in as many contests.
Foton suffered their second straight loss. They were led by Shaya Adorador’s 11 points.
Dindin Santiago-Manabat and her sister Jaja were held down to just nine and eight points, respectively.
