BanKo slams Chef’s Classics to keep solo third

Coming off a straight-set rout of Motolite, BanKo continued its tear, romping Chef’s Classics, 25-7, 25-16, 25-17, in the 2019 PVL Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre, Sunday.

With the victory, BanKo moved up to the third spot with an 8-5 win-loss standing.

Unlike the first two sets that saw the Perlas Spikers dominate with a 25-7 start, BanKo was unable to shake off Chef’s Classics right away. The Perlas Spikers started on the wrong foot and found themselves staring at a 3-7 deficit.

Nicole Tiamzon and Dzi Gervacio then sparked a 7-1 rally to take the lead at 10-8. Though the Red Spikers were able to knot things up, Ella De Jesus ignited a huge 13-2 spark for BanKo to take a ten-point advantage which then marked the end for Chef’s Classics.

“I think we just have to go back to our meeting after the two straight losses that we had and after that naman we could see na we performed way better so parang we would always go back to what we’ve said na ‘let’s always have teamwork lang and pag tulungan natin,” said Dzi Gervacio, on the Perlas Spikers’ two-game winning streak.

Gervacio and Ella De Jesus topped the scoring list for BanKo, tallying 10 points apiece with the former also recording nine excellent digs.

Sue Roces chipped in nine markers built on six hits, two aces, and a block while Kathy Bersola also provided nine points for the Perlas Spikers.

Meanwhile, no player reached double-digits in scoring for Chef’s Classics.

Ella Viray paced the Red Spikers with seven points – all from the attacking department – while her sister Nieza followed with five markers.

Julia Angeles, on the other hand, led the defensive end with 21 excellent digs and nine receptions.

The Red Spikers remained winless in 15 outings.

BanKo will look to extend its streak when it squares off against Choco Mucho on October 9, Wednesday at 6:00 P.M. On the other hand, Chef’s Classic will try and break in the win column on October 19, Saturday, against Air Force.
