Motolite bounces back, gives Chef’s Classics rude PVL welcome

Following their disappointing opening day tilt against Creamline, the Motolite Power Builders vented their ire on the debuting Chef’s Classics Red Spikers, handing the neophytes a straight-set beatdown, 25-22, 25-19, 25-19, in the 2019 Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the Filoil Flying V Arena.

“Today’s game was not good. We won, yes, but we still slow in other things – the speed of the ball, our movement, we’re still working on that,” said Motolite head coach Godfrey Ukumu.

“Our opponents played well, they’ve given us at least something we can go and think about. But we still need to work hard,” he added.

After locking up the first and second sets with ease, Tots Carlos and Isa Molde connived to build an 8-4 cushion early in the final frame.

Ella Viray tried to will his team to the last push, converting two consecutive attacks to close the gap within two, 12-14.

However, it was all Motolite from there as the lead ballooned to as many as eight points.

Myla Pablo delivered the finishing blows to push Motolite to an even 1-1 record while dropping Chef’s Classics to 0-1.

Pablo fired on all cylinders – tallying 20 points built on 17 attacks and three blocks while Carlos chipped in nine markers coming from six attacks and three aces.

Motolite — who was held to just four excellent sets in its previous outing — gathered 25 sets this game, 15 of which coming from Iris Tonelada who also gathered 12 digs.

On the other hand, Nieza Viray fired 10 markers for Chef’s Classics while Justine Tiu added eight.
