F2 Logistics to use losses in PVL debut as motivation for next conference

F2 Logistics had high hopes entering the 2022 Premier Volleyball League Open Conference.

After topping the inaugural PNVF Champions League late last year, the Cargo Movers were seen as one of the heavy favorites to win the title.

However, the Kalei Mau-less F2 Logistics failed to reach expectations and settled for a sixth-place finish in the nine-team field.

Bur for Cargo Movers head coach Benson Bocboc, he believes that it is a good learning experience for the team moving forward.2022-PVL-PetroGazz-vs-F2-Logistics-Benson-Bocboc F2 Logistics to use losses in PVL debut as motivation for next conference News PVL Volleyball  - philippine sports news

“‘Pag mga ganito naman, pagdadaanan talaga nating lahat ‘yan,” said Bocboc, who handled the team in its debut conference in lieu of head coach Ramil De Jesus.

“So, manalo ‘man or matalo, we’ll learn from those mistakes or yung kakulangan para next conference we have the drive and malaman natin kung ano yung kailangan natin to compete with the other teams in the PVL,” he added.

Coming off an immaculate sweep of the PNVF Champions League, F2 Logistics opened its PVL campaign with a hot 2-0 start before losing the next two games against Cignal and Choco Mucho which put the team at the third spot in Group A.

The Cargo Movers were ousted by the twice-to-beat Petro Gazz in the quarterfinals before eventually falling to sixth following a loss to PLDT in the 5th-6th classification phase.

Indeed, it was a tough stretch for the once-mighty F2 Logistics, who ended the tournament with a four-game losing streak.

But instead of sulking over their finish, De Jesus’ long-time assistant instead looked at the silver linings for the Cargo Movers this conference.2022-PVL-PetroGazz-vs-F2-Logistics-Dawn-Macandili F2 Logistics to use losses in PVL debut as motivation for next conference News PVL Volleyball  - philippine sports news

“Yun yung nakita natin ngayon na puwede talagang maasahan yung second group natin,” said Bocboc.

“Ang maganda naman kasi the second stringers are always ready. They enjoy playing and anytime na tawagin sila, ready sila. So, kahit short moments lang so yun malaking bagay yun kasi sometimes ‘di natin maiiwasan kung off talaga yung first group natin, we need agad the backup,” he further explained.

Bocboc also expressed the need to build a system that can be effective for both the first group and the second stringers.

“For sure, nakita natin yung kailangan i-adjust ng team so aside from of course losing some old players and getting new ones, I think we need more time to bond in terms of putting up a system that is effective for everyone,” he said.

“So medyo kinapos pero hopefully by next conference we can do better.”
