Jaja Santiago relieved as Chery Tiggo win over Creamline came at a crucial time

BACARRA, ILOCOS NORTE — Chery Tiggo got its much-needed confidence booster heading to the final juncture of the elimination round.

And it came in the form of a huge four-set win against the league-leading Creamline, Friday night at the PCV Socio-Civic and Cultural Center.

“Sobrang laki.

“Kasi isipin natin malapit na matapos ‘tong round. Kailangan namin ng momentum hanggang dulo hanggang sa makuha namin’ yung goal namin,” shared Santiago.

Coming off a tough five-set loss against Sta. Lucia, the Crossovers learned from their mistakes in time for their most crucial bout in the elimination phase.

Through the lessons from the heart-breaking defeat, Chery Tiggo bounced back in style with a win (25-18, 25-23, 23-25, 25-20) over the Cool Smashers.

The Ageo Medics import fired 20 points built on 15 attacks, three aces, and two blocks to lead Crossovers to a 4-2 standing.

“Masaya kami from loss last Wednesday. Hindi naman sa low morale, pero parang marami kaming natutunan. At the same time, kailangan namin talaga magimprove as a team. Masaya kami as a team. Nag-work talaga ‘yung team work namin and nag-improve talaga, at nag-step up talaga lahat,” shared the import of Ageo Medics.

“Ito talaga ‘yung pinaka nilu-look forward namin na makatapat. Kasi halos lahat ng teams, ‘pag tinanong mo sino ba ‘yung pinaka-gusto niyong kalaban, ‘yun nga Creamline.”
