Chery Tiggo shows poise vs young CPS, bounces back in PNVFCL

Chery Tiggo fended a pesky California Precision Sports side in three close sets, 25-22, 27-25, 25-23, in the Philippine National Volleyball Federation Champions League, Monday at the Aquamarine Sports Complex in Lipa City, Batangas.

Justine Dorog continues to step up for the injured Shaya Adorador, tallying 15 receptions, 10 digs, and seven attacks.

“Sobrang thankful ako na pinagkatiwalaan ako ng mga coaches,” said the UP product. “Ginagawa ko lang naman ang sinasabi nila at inaapply ko lang yung learnings na natutunan ko sa training.

“Siguro ngayon, excited ako kasi sobrang tagal ko na hindi nag-spiker. Lumalabas lang talaga sa laro,” Dorog continued.

The Crossovers bounced back from a five-set, heartbreaking loss to the Petro Gazz Angels yesterday.

Casiey Dongallo converted a powerful hit to give CPS a 23-22 advantage in the third set.

The PVL champions then fended off the late run from the young CPS side with Dindin Santiago-Manabat, Joy Dacoron, and Mylene Paat scoring three consecutive points to bag the game.

Paat scored 17 points and Santiago-Manabat, who dropped a tournament-best 37 points in Chery Tiggo’s five-set loss to Petro Gazz on Sunday night, played sparingly and finished with seven points and 10 receptions.

Joy Dacoron also scored seven points for the Crossovers, who remained in third place with a 2-1 won-lost card.

CPS, which failed to sustain its leads in the second and third sets, dropped to a fighting 0-3.

Casiey Dongallo paced CPS with 23 points, including two blocks, while Jelai Gajero also continued to impress with 14 points, 13 digs, and seven receptions.

Praises continue to pour on the young CPS side.

“They are very admirable. Very disciplined. You can see already their determination and it’s going to be a bright future for them,” Velez said.

Chery Tiggo will take on Baguio on Wednesday at 4:00 PM while CPS will look for its first win also against Baguio on Tuesday at 1:30 PM.
