The F2 Logistics Cargo Movers showed their class in crucial situations, edging the United Volleyball Club in straight sets, 25-22, 25-21, 25-22, for their seventh win in the 2019 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at the FilOil Flying V Centre.
A flurry of Alex Cabanos aces and Ara Galang kills propelled the Cargo Movers from a 19-21 deficit to a 24-21 lead. F2 Logistics went on a similar 5-0 run in the second set to gain another decisive advantage, 23-18. The Cargo Movers then showed their late-game brilliance again to end the match, as UVC gave away errors that pushed F2 Logistics to a 24-21 lead and the win.
“Mas nakaka-adjust na kami ngayon. Kahit may mga lapses pa, medyo nakakakuha na kami ng bwelo,” said F2 Logistics head coach Ramil De Jesus as his team are still waiting on the starting setter Kim Fajardo’s return.
Lindsay Stalzer topped the Cargo Movers with 12 points, while 2018 Invitational Cup MVP Ara Galang added 10.
Kalei Mau led error-prone UVC with 18 points. Bedart-Ghani finished with 17.
F2 Logistics (7-1) next take on the streaking PLDT Home Fibr Power Hitters (5-4) at the Alonte Sports Arena on Saturday. United VC (4-4) face the Cignal HD Spikers (5-4) on Tuesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.
