Gonzaga-Bautista remains unbeaten; Marano, Rondina teams enter QFs

The RC Cola-Army A duo of Jovelyn Gonzaga and Nene Bautista secured a ticket to the quarterfinals after sweeping Meralco’s Jonafer San Pedro and April Ross Hingpit, 21-17, 21-16, in Day 2 of the Philippine Superliga Beach Volleyball Challenge Cup 2016 Saturday at the Sands SM By The Bay in Manila.

Army threatened to pull away in the first set after taking a 12-6 lead, but Hingpit and San Pedro made use of well-placed shots to pull within 2, 13-11.

The score in the opening set was still close at 18-16 but a service error by San Pedro followed by hits from Bautista allowed Army to escape, 21-17.

In the second set, San Pedro scored a hit to pull Meralco within 17-14, but Bautista once again answered with a flurry to help Army complete the sweep.

Army A topped Pool D with a 3-0 slate, while Meralco bowed out of the tournament as they only garnered one win against two losses.

Maizo-Pontillas opened the first frame with back to back aces, but Foton answered with eight straight points to take control, 8-2. Rondina continued to rack up points off well-placed shots after that point, as Foton’s lead grew to 16-5.

Foton’s dominance continued in the second set as they completed a sweep. Petron XCS will finish with a 1-1 record in the group, good enough to advance to the quarter-finals.

In Pool B, F2 Logistics’ Aby Marano and Danika Gendrauli claimed the pole position after cruising past Standard Insurance-Navy B’s Florence Madulid and Pauline Genido, 21-13, 21-7.

Three straight aces by Gendrauli set the tone for what was an easy win for the Cargo Movers, as the team went up 16-9 in the opening set. The team continued to attack Navy B’s poor reception, and took the next set as well.

The fate Navy B suffered was the opposite of what Standard Insurance-Navy A’s Pau Soriano and Norie Jane Diaz accomplished, completing a sweep of Pool A after winning over UE’s Angelica Dacaymat and Jasmine Alcayde, 21-8, 21-11.

Like in the F2 Logistics-Navy B match, Navy A was just superior from the service line, doing damage to pull away from UE.
