MJ Perez and the F2 Logistics Cargo Movers spoiled the return of Jaja Santiago as they demolished the Foton Tornadoes, 28-26, 25-15, 25-23, in the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix Saturday afternoon at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
The Olympian was at her best, fueling the Cargo Movers’ attack in the second set en route to an easy win.
Perez, the Most Valuable Player of the 2017 Grand Prix who replaced American-Italian Becky Perry last week, delivered 15 kills and four blocks for 19 points. Meanwhile, Lindsay Stalzer chipped in 12 markers for the Cargo Movers, who posted their ninth win in 12 matches.
Ara Galang also made a significant contribution as she registered 11 markers, while national team captain Aby Maraño added 10.
“I’m so happy to be back here in the PSL,” said Perez following her first game, after towing the Cargo Movers to a runner-up finish last year.
“It feels really great to play for F2 Logistics again. They’re like a family to me and I’m really so happy,” she added.
Import Courtney Felinski tallied 18 points, while Milagros Collar had 14 markers for Foton. The Tornadoes remain in the basement with a 1-11 win-loss card.
Santiago, the MVP of the 2016 Grand Prix, was finally back from a very long stint with Ageo Medics in the V.Premier League in Japan. But her presence was hardly felt, as she finished with only seven attacks, a block and an ace for a nine-point effort.
