One of the most dominant franchises in the PSL was taken to the limit by a hungry squad.

The F2 Logistics Cargo Movers needed five sets to put away the Generika-Ayala Lifesavers and enter the 2018 Chooks to Go All-Filipino Conference.

The Cargo Movers’ discipline and chemistry were put to the test by a determined Generika-Ayala floor defense. The Lifesavers were so unrelenting that they pushed F2 Logistics to frustration.

“Sabi ko, kung gusto nila maglaro sa Thursday, sige lang. Pero kung ayaw niyo, tapusin niyo na. Kung ‘di pa kayo pagod, eh ‘di maglaro pa tayo sa Thursday.

“Actually, nakikita ko naman na kapag kaya pigain ‘yung kalaban, napipiga naman. May mga times lang galaga na petiks eh,” F2 Logistics head coach Ramil De Jesus remembered telling his wards.

“Talaga namang confident ‘yung Generika kapag kami ‘yung kalaban. Nakikita kasi nila na may mga advantage sila sa rotation. Nagagamit nila ‘yung opportunity na magkaroon ng lapses kami sa loob,” the decorated mentor added.

F2 Logistics setter Kim Fajardo acknowledges that they still use their first round loss to Generika as motivation.

“Sobrang madepensa sila. Semis ‘to, and do-or-die sila kanina. Nakaka-challenge talaga kasi hanggang ngayon pingahuhugutan pa rin namin ‘yung talo namin sa kanila noong first round,” said the National Team setter.

“Hindi pa rin talaga sila bumitaw. Sabi nga ni coach, kahit gaano ka lumamang sa Generika, kakapit ‘yan. Hindi sila magpapabaya.”

Captain Cha Cruz, who had 17 points in the game, pointed out that quelling a hungry team will only help the Cargo Movers in their sixth Finals appearance.

“Generika is such a strong team. Na-test talaga ‘yung capabilities ng team.

“It was a good challenge for us kasi first five-setter namin ‘yun this season. Good for us na nalaman namin na kaya namin lagpasan ‘yung ganoong situation,” she closed.

Now, he has waded through everything volleyball - from its icky politics to the post-modern art that is Jia Morado's setting.
