Fresh off a straight-set drubbing of PacificTown–Army last Wednesday, the Petro Gazz Angels picked up from where they left off, hitting their first winning streak in the 2019 PVL Open Conference, Sunday evening.
The Angels dispatched the Philippine Air Force Lady Jet Spikers, 25-16, 25-20, 25-23, at the FilOil Flying V Centre.
“Naka-dalawang sunod so hopefully, magtuloy-tuloy pa talaga. Pero yung game namin, marami pa talagang kailangan trabahuhin,” Petro Gazz head coach Arnold Laniog said.
The Angels found their groove right out of the gate, throttling the Lady Jet Spikers for a commanding 2-0 set edge. Air Force got their bearings in the third frame, but Petro Gazz had enough in the tank to stave off a late surge.
Cherry Nunag and Jovie Prado spearheaded the Angels on the offensive end. The former scored all of her 10 points via attacks; meanwhile, the latter nailed eight attacks, a kill block and an ace for 10 markers as well.
Paneng Mercado and Jeanette Panaga supplemented eight points apiece. Jonah Sabete, who hammered down the match-clinching blow, chimed in seven markers.
Petro Gazz playmaker Djanel Cheng oiled the offense for her team, tossing 15 excellent sets, as the Angels rained down 40 attacks.
The reigning PVL Reinforced Conference champions rose to the fourth spot with a 3-2 card. They also piled on the woes of the Lady Jet Spikers, who slumped to a dismal 0-5 slate.
Dell Palomata was the only Lady Jet Spiker who soared to twin-digit territory. She finished with a game-high 12 points off of 10 attacks and a pair of kill blocks.
Wendy Semana dished out 13 excellent sets for Air Force, who saw 10 players log in a point in a losing cause.
The Angels look to stretch their streak to three when they square off against the Choco Mucho Flying Titans on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Air Force will try to barge into the win column against winless Chef’s Classics Red Spikers a week from now. Both matches will be played at the same venue.
