Navy salvages seventh place, dumps Amy’s

The Standard Insurance-Navy Corvettes refused to sink to last place, blasting the Amy’s Spikers 25-13, 25-17, 19-25, 25-9 to finish in seventh place in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The veteran-laiden squad of Navy executed their plays and served hard to keep their young foes at bay in the first two sets. The Corvettes built a steady 19-10 wall in the first set then rushed to an 18-11 lead in the second frame to claim a 2-0 lead in sets.

Amy’s lineup adjustments in the third frame confused Navy enough for the Spikers to take a set. But the Corvettes responded in the fourth frame, adjusting their defense and passing to claim a 20-8 lead. Left with no more tricks, Amy’s succumbed to another loss.

“Not bad. ‘Yan lang ang kinaya namin eh pero pasalamat pa rin tayo,” Navy head coach Nene Chavez said. “Sa akin kahit papaano nag-gain sila sa maturity nila pero hindi talaga ‘yung inexpect ko sa kanila.

“Kahit papaano naman sa performance nila today, Nakita ko na nag-enjoy naman sila. Kahit anong mangyari, banat lang sila, nothing to lose.”

As she had all season, former Adamson Lady Falcon Pau Soriano led Navy with 18 points while Hezzy Acuña and Carissa Martinez added 10 markers each.

Towering Lourdes Clemente managed 11 points for the Lady Altas-powered Amy’s Spikers while Jowie Versoza managed 10 markers. The Lady Altas surrendered 32 errors to Navy’s 21.

Since they competed in the PSL Invitational Cup in the summer as the New San Jose Builders, Amy’s has not won a match, settling for another last place finish.

Standard Insurance-Navy (3) – Soriano 18, Acuña 10, Martinez 10, Eguia 9, Mabbayad 9, Serafica 3, Diaz 1, Dela Cruz 1, Veronas 1, Sabete 0, Fortuno (L)
