F2 Logistics notches third straight win, sends Army to three-game tailspin

After losing their first two matches of the season, the F2 Logistics Cargo Movers surged to their third consecutive win, dumping the RC Cola-Army Lady Troopers 25-21, 25-18, 25-17 in the 2016 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The Cargo Movers fired in all cylinders, outclassing the Lady Troopers in every scoring category.

F2’s dominance came after head coach Ramil De Jesus expected to go to battle without 6-foot-6 import Hayley Spelman who had was saddled with food poisoning earlier in the day.

“Akala ko nga hindi siya (Spelman) makakapaglaro kanina. Makikita mo talaga ‘yung professionalism niya na kahit may iniindang sakit, lumaban pa ‘rin,” lauded de Jesus.

Spelman mustered a dominant 18-point performance built on 13 attacks, three aces, and two blocks. Her fellow American import Sydney Kemper added 11 markers.

The Cargo Movers dished out 11 block kills and 10 service aces. De Jesus hopes his wards can build on their momentum in the following games.

“Maganda ‘yung pinakita namin halos all-around. Ngayon siguro nasa 80 percent na kami. Unti-unti naming nakukuha ‘yung cohesion na kailangan namin. Hopefully, magresulta siya sa panalo sa mga susunod naming laro,” De Jesus remarked.

Jovelyn Gonzaga towed the Lady Troopers with 11 points while veteran Rachel Daquis managed six markers.

F2 Logistics (3-2) will begin their second round campaign against Petron (4-1) while RC Cola (1-3) faces Generika (0-4) on Thursday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.
