Army dispatches Fourbees-Cavite in straight sets



After a disheartening loss to Champion Infinity last Sunday, the Army Troopers made easy pickings of the Fourbees-Cavite Patriots 25-18, 25-17, 25-21 in the first round of eliminations in the inaugural season of the Spiker’s Turf at the San Juan Arena.

Army used its wealth of offensive juggernauts to out-spike the Patriots, 47-26. FEU Tamaraw, Greg Dolor, led Army’s assault with 15 markers off 12 kills with awe-inspiring back row attacks. PJ Rojas was just as devastating for Army as the 5’10” winger drove home 13 markers off an impressive 11-20 spiking clip. FEU’s Manolo Refugia was masterful with his sets, as the fiery Setter delivered 28 excellent sets.

Still without a win in three games, Cavite received a splendid performance from Middle Blocker, JC David. The Adamsonian dropped a season-high 11 points with nine attacks, a block, and an ace. Unfortunately, no other Patriot scored in double digits as its leading scorer in its past two matches, Berwin Coming managed only a single point.

Army is now third in the standings with a 2-1 record. They look to get their victory on April 19 when they face the still winless Cignal HD Spikers. Cavite’s next match also comes against Cignal on April 23.

The Scores:

Army (3) – Dolor 15, Rojas 13, Baloaloa 11, Labide 10, Depamaylo J. 7, Abdulmajid 2, Refugia 1, Depamaylo N. 0, Oxciano 0, Uy (L)

Cavite (0) – David 11, Ramos 7, Sioson 7, Abecese 5, Doliente 2, Coming 1, Ytorzaita 1, Baroy (L)
