Mika Reyes, Sta. Lucia sweep struggling PLDT, enter PVL win column

BACARRA, ILOCOS NORTE — Sta. Lucia scored its first win in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference after a clean sweep of PLDT, 25-18, 25-15, 25-21, Monday here at the PCV Socio-Civic Cultural Center.

In the third set, Dell Palomata, MJ Phillips, and Jonah Sabete led a 7-1 rally to put up a comfortable 19-11 cushion for Sta. Lucia.

Isa Molde converted a kill followed by a net violation from Sta. Lucia stopped the bleeding for PLDT.

The UP product, Jorelle Singh, along with a handful of errors from the Lady Realtors, kept the Power Hitters alive and got close to within one, 21-22. However, an attack error from Molde, paired with a block from Phillips and a kill from Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, settled the set at 25-21.

“Actually lahat, maayos yung game. Yung buong team maayos naman yung nilaro pati yung mga nasa labas nag trabaho rin sila, ang usapan kasi sa game plan mag laro kayo diyan sa loob, mag lalaro kami dito sa labas kaya ayun, happy naman sa nilalaro nila,” said Sta. Lucia coach Eddieson Orcullo.

Phillips led Sta. Lucia with 14 points off five blocks while Palomata had 12 points on nine attacks, two blocks, and an ace.

Mika Reyes, who only had three points in the Lady Realtors’ debut, bounced back with 11 points in the win against PLDT as she did most of her damage in the first two sets.

Meanwhile, Sabete had an all-around game for Sta. Lucia with nine points, 19 excellent digs, and 10 excellent receptions.

Through a balanced first set attack, Sta. Lucia took a 1-0 advantage over PLDT after a 25-18 result.

Isa Molde provided 11 points while Christine Soyud and Singh had nine points each for the Power Hitters.

Sta. Lucia now has a 1-1 standing while PLDT dropped to a 0-2 win-loss card.
