Petro Gazz finds redemption, seals off Perlas for PNVFCL bronze

LIPA CITY, BATANGAS — Petro Gazz claimed third place in the Philippine National Volleyball Federation after taking down Tuguegarao Perlas, 25-11, 26-24, 19-25, 25-20 at the Aquamarine Recreational Center here on Thursday.

The Angels, who were coming off a tough loss to California Precision Sports yesterday, ended the tournament with a 3-2 standing – good for third.

“Kung sa expectation namin, talagang ‘di namin na-reach yung goal namin,” said Petro Gazz head coach Arnold Laniog.

“Doon medyo nakaka-disappoint. Pero ayun nga, in reality on paper ‘yung grupo namin matibay, pero conditioning-wise saka… Kumbaga hindi talaga total package na bago nag-start ‘yung pandemic na ganun sila eh. Hindi pa talaga,” he added.

Already on its way to secure a sweep, Petro Gazz crumbled in the third. That gave the Perlas Spikers a chance to force a fifth set.

The Angels, though, made sure to douse off their opponents through a hot 11-4 run in the fourth frame.

Tuguegarao tried to come back with Nicole Tiamzon and Heather Guino-o in the lead. Petro Gazz, though, managed to extend its lead to 10, 22-12, off a Jessey De Leon ace.

Tiamzon led a quick 6-1 rally to slice the lead to just five, 18-23. Then Ria Meneses ended the drought with a quick to put the Angels at match-point.

Guino-o and Tiamzon delivered consecutive blows for the Perlas Spikers. Meneses afterwards won a joust against Czarina Carandang to end the match.

Leading the charge in Petro Gazz’s bounce-back win was Meneses with 19 points.

Ces Molina followed suit with 14 points and nine digs. Grethcel Soltones and De Leon chipped in 11 and 10, respectively.

Guino-o led Perlas with 16 points while Tiamzon and Mich Morente each had 13.
