As the confetti rained down inside the Filoil Flying V Centre last Saturday, F2 Logistics Cargo Movers import Lindsay Stalzer still held her head up high.
Despite coming so close to winning her fourth PSL title, the 2018 MVP admitted it was an unexpected finish for a team riddled with injuries all conference long.
“I think we had the biggest heart.
“We had very little resources with regards to players because of the injuries,” the 6-foot-1, Illinois-born spiker reflected.
The Cargo Movers did not have Kim Dy and Cha Cruz for this campaign. Then midway through the tournament, National Team setter Kim Fajardo fractured her right pinky finger and was later ruled out for the tournament.
“Alex had to fill the shoes of the best setter in the PSL and she did a great job,” Stalzer said.
This loss should have been a bitter pill to swallow for Stalzer, since it came at the hands of her former team Petron. But the 34-year-old shared that she has no regrets.
Well, except perhaps not being able to play with Fajardo for one whole campaign.
“No regrets. I’m very proud of the team.
“It’s too bad because that was my one goal – to get another championship. I really thought we could. I really wanted to play with Kim Fajardo,” she disclosed.
“I guess God has something on me, I don’t know. Just disappointed that we are so close to the title,” she quipped.
For now, Stalzer might not call it a day. After all, she has stated numerous times that she wants one more PSL crown.
She is set to play in Vietnam for a pocket tournament. And maybe, she will think of one last run with F2 Logistics for a chance to close out a campaign with one of the best setters in the country.
“I’m going to Vietnam and then I don’t know. We’ll see.”
