Following an uncharacteristic loss, the F2 Logistics Cargo Movers rebounded with a decisive sweep of the Sta. Lucia Lady Realtors, 25-23, 25-14, 25-16, in the 2019 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

F2 Logistics were coming off a shocking a loss to PLDT last Saturday, and still looked dazed at the start against the Lady Realtors. Trailing 13-17, the Cargo Movers then scored 12 of the next 18 points to escape with the opening set win.

Sta. Lucia then could not match their first set effort, falling behind early in the next two frames and allowing the Cargo Movers to run away with the match.

“Slow start masyado so parang walang kumpiyansa. Sabi ko bakit ganun parang hindi niyo kilala yung sarili niyo habang naglalaro kayo,” F2 Logistics head coach Ramil De Jesus recalled telling his players.

“Hindi naman dapat i-pressure… Ito naman mga nakalaban niyo na, nadaanan niyo na nung first round. So alam niyo kung paano maglalaro, then ano yung strength and weakness ng kalaban,” he pointed out.

Imports Becky Perry and Lindsay Stalzer took charge for F2 Logistics, contributing 17 points each. Middle blocker Majoy Baron added seven markers.

Casey Schoenlein led the Lady Realtors 12 points, while Rachel Austero managed eight.

F2 Logistics (8-2) take on rivals Petron Blaze Spikers (10-0) on Saturday at the Caloocan Sports Center. Meanwhile, Sta. Lucia (2-7) face the PLDT Home Fibr Power Hitters (6-5) on Thursday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.
