LIPA CITY, BATANGAS — Dasmarinas head coach Norman Miguel only had good words for Madz Gampong after their win over Sabong International last Wednesday.
The former National University standout has been Miguel’s most consistent weapon throughout the PNVF Champions League, averaging 16 points in three games played.
He finished with 12 points in the 25-20, 25-21, 25-23 semis-clinching win over the Negrenses at the Aquamarine Recreational Center here.
“Si Madz naman ever since from day one talagang consistent siya kasi siya naman talaga ang go to guy namin,” said the former NU Lady Bulldogs coach.
“Alam naman namin yun and he knows that very well. Malaking factor sa amin si Madz na talagang nali-lead niya yung team namin,” he added.
“Gagawin ko lahat ng makakaya ko para maipasok yung team namin sa championship,” said the 5-foot-9 outside hitter.
“Isa na rin yun sa pangarap ko kaya nandito ako gusto ko rin suklian lahat ng pinaghirapan ng mga coaches namin para makapasok ng championship tsaka pa-thank you na rin kami sa lahat ng sumusuporta kay Cong Pidi [Barzaga] at Mayor Jenny [Austria-Barzaga],” he added.
With the victory, Team Dasma topped Pool B with a perfect 3-0 record with eight points.
The Monarchs will go up against VNS in the semifinals tomorrow at 4:00 PM.
“Gagawin ko lang kung ano makakaya ko di ko naman minamaliit na yung team nila malakas din sila tulong tulong lang kami, tutulungan ko sila tutulungan nila ako,” said the former Air Force stalwart.
“Makapasok lang kami ng championship masaya na kami.”
