The F2 Logistics Cargo Movers displayed their lethal form anew, powering past the Sta. Lucia Lady Realtors, 25-10, 25-14, 25-17, in the quarterfinals of the 2019 PSL All-Filipino Conference, Saturday at the Ynares Sports Center in Pasig.
“Sabi ko nga, ito yung pinaka-importanteng game sa lahat. So kung hindi ka mananalo dito, useless lahat ng pinaghirapan mo nung buong preliminaries,” said Cargo Movers head coach Ramil De Jesus. “So talagang yung mindset namin, manalo ngayong araw na ‘to.”
Holding a three-point cushion in the second technical timeout of the third set, Kalei Mau then took matters into her own hands. The Fil-Hawaiian towed F2 Logistics to a 22-16 lead, hammering down haymaker after haymaker.
Mau top-scored with 17 points — built on 13 attacks and four blocks — laced with nine excellent digs and two excellent receptions.
Ara Galang pummeled 11 points, which included eight attacks and a pair of aces. Meanwhile, Majoy Baron netted three of her team’s eight service aces to go along with two blocks for eight points.
Aby Maraño tallied seven markers, while Kim Fajardo tossed 13 excellent sets on top of three points. Defensive specialist Dawn Macandili had 17 excellent digs.
The Lady Realtors missed the services of hard-hitting MJ Phillips yet again after she returned home to the United States due to personal reasons.
Pam Lastimosa was the lone bright spot for Sta. Lucia. She collected 10 points to go along with eight excellent receptions. Amy Ahomiro managed six markers.
The Cargo Movers — who will enjoy a twice-to-beat incentive — prepare for their semifinals match against the Santiago siblings-led Foton on Tuesday at the Muntinlupa Sports Center.
