Cargo Movers run over Foton, overtake RC Cola in standings

The F2 Logistics Cargo Movers ran over the Foton Tornadoes in straight sets, 25-11, 25-23, 25-14, to remain unbeaten after four games in the elimination round of the 2016 Philippine Superliga (PSL) All-Filipino Conference women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

F2 Logistics head coach Ramil De Jesus said their team chemistry was their biggest advantage.

“Hindi lang siguro masyadong nagg-gel pa ‘yung Foton, compared sa team [namin]. ‘Yung four kasi, La Salle, tapos ibi-blend mo na lang ‘yung mga dati kong players,” said De Jesus.

Aby Maraño started out hot, sparking a 15-4 run that gave F2 Logistics the cushion they needed to draw first blood against Foton with ease, 25-11.

The former UAAP MVP had 10 points off 7 attacks and three blocks.

De Jesus said the team especially worked on the connection between Maraño and setter Kim Fajardo’s during training.

“‘Yun ‘yung mina-maximize ko kasi sila ‘yung halos ‘di mag-abot e. Last game namin, kung mapapansin niyo, na-set [ni Kim], tapos ‘di tinamaan [ni Aby]. ‘Yung mga ganun ‘yung wino-work out namin sa training,” said the De La Salle University Lady Spikers’ mentor.

The second set was tighter, with the teams separated by only two points, 23-21, after two consecutive unforced errors for F2 Logistics that forced their head coach to call a timeout. Then, attacks by Kim Dy and Ara Galang took the set for the Cargo Movers, 25-23.

After the slight scare given by Foton in the previous set, the Cha Cruz-led squad gave no mercy in the final set, starting with a 10-1 run, which they rode towards a 25-14 set and match victory.

Meanwhile, Jaja Santiago led all scorers with 13 markers off nine attacks, two blocks, and two aces.

The Cargo Movers (4-0) will have two weeks of rest before they face Standard Insurance (0-2) on July 17 at the Filoil Flying V Centre, while the Foton Tornadoes (2-2) will go up against the also-undefeated RC Cola (3-0) on July 14 at the Cuneta Astrodome.

“Ang target lang kasi muna namin is ‘yung top four. Siguro isa o dalawang panalo, secure ka na du’n sa top four,” closed De Jesus.

The Scores:

F2 Logistics (3) – Galang 11, Maraño 10, Reyes 8, Dy 8, Fajardo 6, Cruz 6, Baron 1, Gendrauli 0, Soyud 0, Macandili (L)

Foton (0) – Santiago 13, Ortiz 6, Orendain 4, Laure 4, Rondina 3, Perez 1, Dimaculangan 0, Cerveza 0, Araneta 0, Macatuno 0, General (L), Acevedo (L)
